Read the book on paper - it is quite a powerful experience. Which isn't usually his style, so maybe that's why it rang false to me.
We get almost no description or exploration of the relationship between Sabriel and Lirael, now that they are working together as the Abhorsen and Abhorsen-in-Waiting.
Sabriel, the first installment in the trilogy, launched critically acclaimed author Garth Nix onto the fantasy scene as a rising star. Since childhood, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who refuse to stay dead. Description His fantasy novels for younger readers include The Ragwitch, the six books of the Sevls dream. Fed up with waiting and ready to fight, Meilin has set off into enemy territory with her spirit animal, a panda named Jhi.

I had really enjoyed Sabriel and its sequels, and wanted to round things out with the novella that opens this collection. However, Clariel wants no part of it—a natural hunter, all she ever thinks about is escaping the citys confining walls and journeying back to the quiet, green world of the Great Forest.
Its Gate is a huge. Dead spirits can cross only when aided by a Necromancer, or when the border is weakened by a concentration of often violent deaths. The water in the Fifth Precinct has strong mutagenic properties, and is implied to be partially responsible for the monstrous appearance of some Greater Dead and necromancers.
I disagree. I think the main problem with the book is the pacing. Clariel starts off slow.
This lasts for almost half the book, and then, all of a sudden, within the space of one page several hugely important events flash by so fast that I almost missed them. Without spoiling anything I can tell you that I would normally expect such pivotal things to take at least a chapter to unfold, particularly with the otherwise slow build of the story as a whole.
Once Clariel sparks into action she moves swiftly for a bit, and then the pace slows again. The climactic event of the book was…anticlimactic. I felt let down. I was unconvinced by her motivations for much of the story, since she flips from being proactive to passive on a page-by-page basis.
I did enjoy the insight into free magic. Clariel is an indifferent Charter Mage but craves power as a means to control her own life.

Charter magic is orderly and safe for humans to use. Free magic is chaotic and dangerous, and corrupts all who attempt to use it, often ultimately killing them and bringing them back from the dead as slaves to powerful creatures made of Free Magic.
Much of this is covered in the three original books of the Abhorsen series, but none of the main characters until Clariel actually try to use it. The Free Magic users we encounter in the books tend to be evil, and all of the constructs are either evil or so chaotic and destructive as to make no difference, but Clariel, who is drawn strongly to Free Magic, is not an evil character.
Under the influence of Free Magic her motives become less clear, and the ending states explicitly that if she uses Free Magic again she will become evil. This was difficult for me to swallow. Can someone whose motives are essentially harmless become evil simply through circumstance?
Clariel becomes addicted to the power Free Magic gives her because she has been thwarted all her life and craves personal agency. Her choices pertain solely to herself, and throughout the story she continually chooses to protect her friends and family, even when it would be easier not to.
The ending was ambiguous, particularly since we already know how Clariel turns out. We know the end of her story before we start reading.
I would rather have had a definite ending that led directly to that outcome than the strange, wishy-washy ending we got. I was disappointed by the pacing and characterization, but thought that overall Clariel was decent.
I continue to love the Abhorsen series to bits, and I enjoyed the expansion to the world of the Old Kingdom. Every story could use more Mogget.
