Title: Goldenhand by Garth Nix

Book Beginning:
In the Sixth Precinct, the inexorable current of the river that flowed through Death slowed almost to a stop.
Friday 56:
Lireal flexed the fingers on her golden, Charter-spelled hand and once again regretted Sam's desire to show off his work. Her hand was glowing like a candle, soft behind gold-colored glass. It was warm, and charming, but just too visible for her liking.
Comments: This is the fifth book in the Old Kingdom/Abhorrsen series. I love the first books in it and am just delighted to be back to visiting the old kingdom, again.


  1. I'm intrigued!!! I added yo to the Linky. Wishing you the best for 2018!

  2. Somehow I've never read anything by Nix - I'm going to have to change that! :)
