Bestselling author Garth Nix returns to the Old Kingdom for the never-before-told love story of Sabriel’s parents, Terciel and Elinor, and the charter magic that brought them together – and threatened to tear them apart.

In the Old Kingdom, a land of ancient and often terrible magics, 18-year-old orphan Terciel learns the art of necromancy from his great-aunt, Tizanael. But not to raise the Dead, rather to lay them to rest. He is the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, and Tizanael is the Abhorsen, the latest in a long line of people whose task it is to make sure the Dead do not return to life. Across the Wall in Ancelstierre, a steam-age country where magic usually does not work, 19-year-old Elinor lives a secluded life. Her only friends are an old governess and an even older groom who was once a famous circus performer. Her mother is a tyrant who is feared by all despite her sickness and impending death ... but perhaps there is even more to fear from that. Elinor does not know she is deeply connected to the Old Kingdom, nor that magic can sometimes come across the Wall, until a plot by an ancient enemy of the Abhorsens brings Terciel and Tizanael to Ancelstierre.

'Enjoyable, engaging, and well written.'
Kirkus Reviews

'Terciel’s mix of competence and vulnerability is appealing, but Elinor’s journey – buoyed by her resilient spirit – is particularly rewarding. Fans will relish this return to a beloved world.'

'Passionate, compelling, and teeming with the fantastic, the story of Elinor and Terciel – a prequel to Nix's beloved Old Kingdom classics – will charm new readers and thrill longtime fans.'
Cassandra Clare, author of the Mortal Instruments series

'There is no joy like returning to the Old Kingdom. Once again, Nix sets the standard for fantasy, bringing us a tale full of old friends and new enemies, gruesome monsters, and heroines of wit, will, and imagination.'
Leigh Bardugo, New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows and The Grisha Trilogy

'Garth Nix is one of the best worldbuilders in fantasy, and this book is merely further proof. I love the Old Kingdom series, and Goldenhand is an excellent continuation, packed with the excitement and passion of a storytelling virtuoso at the height of his abilities.'
Brandon Sanderson

'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, bestselling author of the Crescent City series

'Beautifully written, magnificently imagined, and wholly original.'
Holly Black, bestselling author of The Spiderwick Chronicles
