Nicholas Sayre will do anything to get across the Wall, back to the Old Kingdom.Thoughts of Lirael and Sam haunt his dreams, and he has come to realize that his destiny lies there, along with all those he cares for. But here in Ancelstierre, far south of the Wall, the Charter is dormant, and among the obstacles Nick faces is one that is not entirely human, and which has a strange power that seems to come from Nicholas himself.With "Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case," Garth Nix continues to explore the magical world of The Abhorsen Trilogy. In additional short stories that range from classic fantasy -- two widely different takes on the Merlin myth -- to a gritty urban version of Hansel and Gretel, to an unusual take on the role of nature in matters of love, and to a heartbreaking story of children and war, Garth Nix displays the range and versatility that have made him one of today's leading writers of fantasy for readers of all ages.

Very, very good collection. Garth Nix is an amazing writer. I particularly liked the 'pick the paragraph' one.

A great collection of shirt stories that will be loved by any Nix fan.

I am generally not a short stories reader but I loved the characters and stories created by Nix in what is a fantastic companion to the Abhorsen series of fantasy novels.

I picked this up because I wasn't ready to leave Nix's Old Kingdom yet. It was completely worthwhile to just find out what happened to Nicholas Syre. Along the way I found myself surprised by "Under the Lake" and "Lightning Bringer". Nix has a great imagination, and it is fun to spend some time with it.
