An Evening with Garth Nix
You are invited to meet Garth Nix and hear him read from Goldenhand, the highly anticipated fifth book in the Old Kingdom series.
Lirael is now the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, with dead creatures to battle and Free Magic entities to bind. When Lirael finds Nicholas Sayre lying unconscious after being attacked by a hideous Free Magic creature, she uses her powers to save him. But Nicholas is deeply tainted with Free Magic. Lirael seeks help for Nick at her childhood home, the Clayr’s Glacier.
‘Garth Nix is one of the greatest living fantasy writers out there. Goldenhand reaffirms why Nix is a master of the genre: his exquisitely detailed world-building is unparalleled, and his characters are so tremendously alive and compelling that I’m convinced there’s Charter Magic in every word.’ — Sarah J. Maas, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling THRONE OF GLASS series
