Nicholas Sayre will do anything to get across the Wall, back to the Old Kingdom. Thoughts of Lirael and Sam haunt his dreams, and he has come to realize that his destiny lies there, along with all those he cares for. But here in Ancelstierre, far south of the Wall, the Charter is dormant, and among the obstacles Nick faces is one that is not entirely human, and which has a strange power that seems to come from Nicholas himself. With "Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case," Garth Nix continues to explore the magical world of The Abhorsen Trilogy. In additional short stories that range from classic fantasy -- two widely different takes on the Merlin myth -- to a gritty urban version of Hansel and Gretel, to an unusual take on the role of nature in matters of love, and to a heartbreaking story of children and war, Garth Nix displays the range and versatility that have made him one of today's leading writers of fantasy for readers of all ages.

A second short story, An Extract of the Journal of Idrach the Lesser Necromancer, was written with exclusive distribution through the official Abhorsen Trilogy web site.

Γεννημένος στη Λυών στη Γαλλία, το 1900, ο Antoine de Saint-Exupéry θεωρούσε τον εαυτό του πιλότο πάνω απ’ όλα. Σε διάστημα είκοσι χρόνων, πραγματοποίησε πλήθος αποστολών χαρτογράφησης και ταχυδρομικών πτήσεων για εμπορικές αεροπορικές εταιρείες. Το θέμα των αερομεταφορών αποτέλεσε σταθμό στην επαγγελματική του πορεία και σημείο έναρξης στις λογοτεχνικές του αναζητήσεις. Η συγγραφή του Μικρού Πρίγκιπα ξεκινά κατά τη διάρκεια του Β΄ Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου, όταν ο Saint-Exupéry αναγκάζεται να εγκαταλείψει την αεροπορία, μετά την εισβολή της Γερμανίας στα γαλλικά εδάφη, και να βρει καταφύγιο στη Νέα Υόρκη. Το στοιχείο ακριβώς της νοσταλγίας της παιδικής ηλικίας μέσα στον Μικρό Πρίγκιπα φανερώνει την έντονη επιθυμία του Saint-Exupéry να επιστρέψει στη Γαλλία καθώς και την ελπίδα του αυτό να συμβεί σε καιρό ειρήνης. Η υπόθεση του Μικρού Πρίγκιπα διαδραματίζεται στην έρημο Σαχάρα. To αεροπλάνο τού αφηγητή-πιλότου έχει συντριβεί στην έρημο. Ο ίδιος έχει μείνει με ελάχιστη τροφή και νερό. Προσπαθώντας να εκτιμήσει τις αντικειμενικές δυσκολίες της συντριβής, προσεγγίζεται από τον Μικρό Πρίγκιπα, ένα σοβαρό μικρό ξανθό αγόρι που του ζητά να του ζωγραφίσει ένα αρνάκι. Ο αφηγητής απαντάει θετικά στο αίτημα του περίεργου μικρού που στέκεται απέναντί του. Σύντομα γίνονται φίλοι και ο Μικρός Πρίγκιπας πληροφορεί τον πιλότο, ότι κατάγεται από έναν μικρό πλανήτη, τον αστεροειδή 325, του μιλά για τα μπαομπάμπ και τα ηφαίστεια του τόπου του αλλά και για το μυστηριώδες τριαντάφυλλο που φύτρωσε κάποια στιγμή στον πλανήτη του. Του μιλά ακόμη για τη φιλία τους και για το ψέμα που το έπιασε να του λέει και που στάθηκε αφορμή για το ταξίδι του σε άλλους πλανήτες. Ο μικρός ταξιδιώτης, συχνά σαστισμένος από τη συμπεριφορά των μεγάλων, γίνεται καθολικό και διαχρονικό σύμβολο αθωότητας και αγάπης, υπευθυνότητας και αφοσίωσης. Στο πρόσωπό του αναγνωρίζουμε τη διορατικότητα της παιδικής ηλικίας που στους μεγάλους βρίσκεται σε χειμερία νάρκη. Τα παιδιά αναζητούν την ουσία με την καρδιά, όχι με τα μάτια…

The long-awaited fifth installment in Garth Nix’s New York Times bestselling Old Kingdom series, for readers who enjoy series by Rae Carson, Kristin Cashore, Scott Westerfeld, and Cassandra Clare. Goldenhand takes place six months after the events of Abhorsen and follows the novella Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case, which is featured in Across the Wall. Lirael lost one of her hands in the binding of Orannis, but now she has a new hand, one of gilded steel and Charter Magic. On a dangerous journey, Lirael returns to her childhood home, the Clayr’s Glacier, where she was once a Second Assistant Librarian. There, a young woman from the distant North brings her a message from her long-dead mother, Arielle. It is a warning about the Witch with No Face. But who is the Witch, and what is she planning? Lirael must use her new powers to save the Old Kingdom from this great danger—and it must be forestalled not only in the living world but also in the cold, remorseless river of Death.
