Sabriel by Garth Nix
I really enjoyed this book a lot. However, when I first started reading it I thought it was definitely on the weird side of things. It is a fantasy book, but it has a darker tone. I really enjoyed the approach to the genre that was taken. This book is probably not for younger readers. There is fighting and some gruesome scenes. In this book, Sabriel must try and rescue her father, the Abhorsen, whose job it is to repel the dead that come into the living world. Unfortunately, the Abhorsen is being held by one of the greater dead and it takes all of Sabriel’s skill and a good deal of luck to survive.
