The long-awaited fifth installment in Garth Nix’s New York Times bestselling Old Kingdom series, for listeners 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Never lacking in action, the story is equally concerned with showcasing Lirael’s evolution….Devotees will find her growth immensely satisfying…Nix’s signature talent is in full effect, creating strong female characters, lucid descriptions, and an absorbing plot…A masterfully spun tale well worth the years long wait.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Goldenhand reaffirms why Nix is a master of the genre: his exquisitely detailed world-building is unparalleled, and his characters are so tremendously alive and compelling that I’m convinced there’s Charter Magic in every word.”

    Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Solid…A fascinating fantasy realm.”

    Publishers Weekly
