    Summary

    Mirra grew up hearing the tales of her great-grandmother Lirael, knowing that anyone in her family could become an Abhorsen at any time. The day the Clayr arrived and assigned her to the current Abhorsen, she wondered if her childhood games of 'bringing down the Dead' had become a reality. But it was not to be. Another secret lurked in her family, laying dormant until the Charter deemed it was now time for a revelation.

    Since the death of the previous Abhorsen, Raniel had protected the Old Kingdom from the increasing attacks by the Dead. Alone. For years he searched diligently for the next Abhorsen-in-Waiting, while unable to solve the puzzle of how the Dead were tracking the movements of those with Abhorsen blood. Who or what was behind it all?

    ** Tales of the Old Kingdom continue with the descendants of Sabriel and Lirael.

    A change is awakening in the Old Kingdom and a heavy burden has been placed on the Abhorsen's shoulders. When the Clayr assign a young Charter mage to the Abhorsen, more questions arise involving the true reasons behind the many attacks by the Dead.

    A story occurring several decades after Goldenhand. *updated often*

    Summary

    Mick had thought his time with his aunt following the Fire was just the mind of a twelve year old coming up with dreams as a coping device. Turns out the bells, Charter Marks and travelling into Death and back were not, so when a Charter sending comes to find him on the Waverider to deliver the bells, the sword and a how-to book written in a language he has vague memories of, he has to learn how to use them and deal with the heavy responsibility that comes with them. The responsibility is not helped by bringing Len back, as he must discover what new abilities and restrictions he has.
