Here we are at the end of our journey through The Old Kingdom. In this thread, we’ll be discussing chapters 24 to 29 and the epilogue but also reflecting on the book as a whole.
Throughout the book but also particularly in this last section, we find Sabriel having to assume some responsibilities she has trained hard for but would far rather not shoulder. Do you enjoy seeing characters who are confident in their abilities or more nervous about them? Do you think a character can be both self-assured and also uncertain about their fitness or readiness for a role? Has Sabriel’s journey impacted you in any particular way? How about Nix’s portrayal of death? Let us know!
