Before she went to join Sam and Mogget downstairs, Lirael paused for a moment to look at herself in the tall silver mirror that hung on the wall of her room. The image that faced her bore little resemblance to the Second Assistant Librarian of the Clayr. She saw a warlike and grim young woman, dark hair bound back with a silver cord rather than hanging free to disguise her face. She no longer wore her librarian's waistcoat, and she had a long Nehima at her side rather than a library-issue dagger.

A few audio glitches but an otherwise excellent performance by Curry in the thrilling and emotional conclusion.

Without feeling as tedious as "just like an extra long episode of the show" sounds, the book felt in many ways just that. The radio interludes and cameos of series main characters were a welcome addition to this exciting and fascinating look at some of the stuff going on around the adventures we normally hear about from Cecil.
Funny, tense and touching by turns, the book is a must for fans - and the audio book, narrated by Cecil Baldwin, is an ideal format for this story in particular.
