The Old Kingdom, also known as Abhorsen is a fantasy series by Garth Nix focusing on a lineage of necromancers who use their abilities to protect people, rather than using them to do evil. The series consists of: Sabriel (1995), Lirael (2001), Abhorsen (2003), The Creature in the Case (2005) a novella, "An Extract of the Journal of Idrach the Lesser Necromancer" (2005) a short story, To Hold the Bridge (2010) a novella, and Clariel (2014).
I’m giggling, because apparently, Sabriel is a ship name in the Supernatural fandom? I don’t know much about Supernatural, but I do know that the “S a” part probably comes from “Sam.”
But the Sabriel I’m searching the tag for is Abhorsen Sabriel, from Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom books.
