Garth Nix Interviewed At Launch Of Clariel

Garth Nix Launches His New Book!

Garth Nix Launched Clariel!

Every so often, we have a signing that takes us by surprise.

We certainty expected a crowd for author Garth Nix, but nothing could have prepared us for the wonderful turnout of Garth’s fans to his signing last Saturday. Buying his latest hardcover Clariel, the fourth in the Abhorsen series, they also enjoyed a chat with the author and free posters and temporary tattoos.

Our thanks go to Hot Key Books who were kind enough to make sure that everybody had a signed copy of the book to buy and take home, and to Garth himself for an epic three-hour signing. And, of course, to everyone who came along to take part in such a wonderful event!

With thanks to Rosi from Hot Key Books, you can find out more about Garth himself, and about Clariel, in this interview taken at Forbidden Planet!

You can find Garth’s books on our website, here…

Sixteen-year-old Clariel is not adjusting well to her new life in the city of Belisaere, the capital of the Old Kingdom.

She misses roaming freely within the forests of Estwael, and she feels trapped within the stone city walls. And in Belisaere she is forced to follow the plans, plots and demands of everyone, from her parents to her maid to the sinister Guildmaster Kilip. Clariel can see her freedom slipping away.

It seems too that the city itself is descending into chaos, as the ancient rules binding Abhorsen, King and Clayr appear to be disintegrating. With the discovery of a dangerous Free Magic creature loose in the city, Clariel is given the chance both to prove her worth and make her escape. But events spin rapidly out of control. Clariel finds herself more trapped than ever, until help comes from an unlikely source. But the help comes at a terrible cost.

Clariel must question the motivations and secret hearts of everyone around her - and it is herself she must question most of all.
