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.

It was truly wonderful to return to Nix's Old Kingdom, and finally see where the story goes and how the characters have grown after the grand battle of "Abhorsen". As always, Nix has a unique and engaging writing style that allows the reader to be completely immersed in the story.

It was a delight to return to the world of Nix's Old Kingdom. The characters continue to fascinate and be compelling. This story was particularly convoluted with separate strands coming together as it advanced. Various characters are developed more fully than previously and a wonderful new character is introduced. Ferin is feisty and self-reliant and marvelous. I wonder if there will be more stories of the Old Kingdom?
