Korte biografie
Garth Nix was born in 1963 in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band outside playing 'Hail the Conquering Hero Comes' or possibly 'Roll Out the Barrel'. Garth left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra (the federal capital) and stayed there till he was nineteen, when he left to drive around the UK in a beat-up Austin with a trunk full of books and a Silver-Reed typewriter.

Despite a wheel literally falling off the Austin, Garth survived to return to Australia and study at the University of Canberra. After finishing his degree in 1986 he worked in a bookshop, then as a book publicist, a publisher's sales representative, and editor. Along the way he was also a part-time soldier in the Australian Army Reserve, serving in an Assault Pioneer platoon for four years. Garth left publishing to work as a public relations and marketing consultant from 1994-1997, till he became a full-time writer in 1998. He did that for a year before becoming a part-time literary agent in 1999. In January 2002 Garth went back to writing full time again, despite his belief that full-time writing explains the strange behaviour of many authors.

Garth currently lives in a beach suburb of Sydney, with his wife Anna, a publisher.

Boek dat gelezen kan worden voor de serie van 'Het oude koninkrijk'. Het is het verhaal van Clariël, die haar eigen plek en rol in de wereld moet vinden. Beetje apart. Het geklaag van Clariël ging me af en toe een beetje op mijn zenuwen werken. Dat was echt iets te veel van het goede. Na 10 keer wist ik het wel.

Aardig boek, Het lijkt me meer een serie voor de jeugd, maar het is af en toe wel grappig. Jammer dat ze met vertalen zijn gestopt.

I really liked this book, especially how the world of Sabriel works. The magic, the relation between life and death and the mystery surrounding the 'old kingdom' made me want to read more. Sabriel is a believable character with both strengths and flaws. The only downside for me was that a large part of the journey was over sea. I wanted to see more of the adventures in the Old Kingdom. Despite that flaw, I enjoyed every page of this book and I'm interested in the rest of the series.
