|What bell can return the voice of the dead?|

|What bell is the sleepbringer?|
Ranna. Ranna is the bell that makes everyone who hears it go to sleep, or get very, very drowsy. Ranna, was represented by Torrigan who is also known as Touchstone. He thought it was very appropriate given he spent about two hundred years as solid wood.
|What bell is the sorrowful?|
Astarael. Astarael casts anyone who hears it want to leave their bodies and just die. It usually ends up killing the people who hear it, but a few manage to survive by thinking of life. Astarael was represented by Lirael. When the seven bells were rung together it gave "the song of the earth, the moon, the starts, the seat, and the sky, of Life and Death and all that was to be and would be."

|What was the second bell that imprisoned Mogget?|
Ranna. Ranna was the second bell that imprisoned Mogget. He slept a lot after that happened. In "Abhorsen" Sam set him free and he made the choice of life and decided to help Lirael and Sabriel to oppose Orannis instead of helping Orannis ruin the world by killing everything.
|What bell is the smallest bell?|
Ranna. Ranna is the smallest and first bell. It's a very sweet sounding bell, and is used in "Sabriel", "Lirael", and "Abhorsen" more than the other bells...except perhaps Saraneth.
