* The ending of ''Sabriel''. [[spoiler:Her dad who died saving her and Touchstone, Magistrix Greenwood who was killed when Mogget attacked, General Horyse (who saw his own death and regretted never seeing the Old Kingdom proper), countless innocent villagers in Ancelstierre, and loads of soldiers and schoolgirls who died fighting Kerrigor. It gets really sad when you reread ''Sabriel'' after reading the next two books and realise that she had a best friend called Ellimere.]]

''Lirael'' only takes place twenty years after ''Sabriel'' (during which Sabriel is eighteen) so she isn't even in her forties yet!
* By the time of Lirael, Sabriel is barely in her forties yet her hair is already turning gray, Touchstone is taking years off his life repairing the Charter stones, and Sam, at least, is painfully aware of it.
