Angel Mage
Angel Mage | Garth Nix
15 posts | 6 read | 22 to read
A new fantasy masterpiece from Garth Nix, bestselling author of the Old Kingdom series. More than a century has passed since Liliath crept into the empty sarcophagus of Saint Marguerite, fleeing the Fall of Ystara. But she emerges from her magical sleep still beautiful, looking no more than nineteen, and once again renews her single-minded quest to be united with her lover, Palleniel, the archangel of Ystara. It's a seemingly impossible quest, but Liliath is one of the greatest practitioners of angelic magic to have ever lived, summoning angels and forcing them to do her bidding. Four young people hold her interest: Simeon, a studious doctor-in-training; Henri, a dedicated fortune hunter; Agnez, a glory-seeking musketeer; and Dorotea, icon-maker and scholar of angelic magic. The four feel a strange kinship from the moment they meet but do not suspect their importance. And none of them know just how Liliath plans to use them, as mere pawns in her plan, no matter the cost to everyone else . . . Fans of Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, and Leigh Bardugo will fall in love with Angel Mage, a feminist fantasy that takes place in an alternate European world ruled by fearsome magic and deadly passions.

I got my book signed! It was an extra specially good night because not only did I get to see my much beloved Garth Nix - he was ‘in conversation‘ with Amie Kaufman who is hilarious, asks great questions and can generally be relied on for quality banter ☺️ and then I went to see the new Terminator movie 🍿

The book I‘ve been daydreaming about holding in my hands... that I‘ve had all weekend and not read a single page 🥴🥴🥴 send help!

Is it the Sarah J Maas cover quote? It took me ages to get over the Stephanie Meyer cover quote on The Hunger Games...

I'm still processing the end of this book and I need some time to just sit and think about it. After that I'm definitely gonna need more of this.

And today‘s #fantasy read.

DuckOfDoom It looks beautiful. Is it a standalone fantasy, a new series, or a the new book in a series? 2mo
Vinjii @DuckOfDoom So far it‘s a stand-alone! 2mo

“Necromancy is not a viable career path” - Garth Nix to children who write him that they want to be necromancers after reading the Old Kingdom books.

Attended a panel where Garth Nix and Veronica Roth talked about their new books. They also answered questions about their old series.

#OctoberTBR shelf featuring library books! Books for review! Books I meant to read during the summer and never got around to #Spookathon picks. Realistically I will get through only a third of these, unless it's a #nosleepOctober but I'm a mood reader so I need the options 😅

sharread Wow, I like them all. Awesome 👍👻🎉🎊 2mo

Look what I won in a raffle at #worldcon2019!

Have started it, just a few chapters in. I'm very intrigued.

Granted, Garth Nix‘s Old Kingdom series is a favorite so I was already inclined to like his new book. But the Three Musketeers vibe and setting are even more enjoyable than expected because he pairs it with an interesting historical set-up and more importantly, cool magic. I loved the magic and the characters. Those are my key needs fulfilled.
But the ARC had no map.
I am counting the days until it pubs in October (2019) so I can get me my MAPS.

aeeklund SO good to hear you liked it! I‘ve been terrified to start it! 5mo
elkeo_TheBookDragon @aeeklund Don‘t worry - it‘s Nix! 5mo
Centique OMG I‘m so excited to hear this. Love Garth Nix! 5mo

While amazed and excited a friend gave me this ARC (Garth Nix is a favorite!), when it comes to #bookswithmaps ARCs suck rocks😣
Despite this disappointment, this gorgeous fatty is my holiday weekend read.
Review TK when I come up for air.
