Sabriel by Garth Nix

Why I recommend this:

I can’t recommend Garth Nix highly enough, especially this first story in the Ahborsen series. All novels can stand on their own, but they are intertwined and follow first Sabriel, then others in the same world. Start here, and lose yourself in this wonderfully fleshed out world filled with magic, strange creatures, and bells that control the dead.
