Sabriel by Garth Nix

In a world where the living is bordered by the realm of the dead, a young woman named Sabriel inherits the role of Abhorsen from her father, tasked with keeping the dead at bay and maintaining the balance between life and death. Raised in a boarding school away from the magical Old Kingdom, she must quickly master the art of necromancy and wield the power of the Charter—a set of magical symbols—to navigate through perilous lands and confront a powerful evil that threatens to overwhelm the world of the living. Along her journey, Sabriel is aided by a mysterious cat-like creature and a young man ensnared by a powerful spell, as she seeks to fulfill her destiny and restore harmony to her fractured world.
