Let s begin with my freuent caveat I know and like the writer And I received a free copy of the book as an Advanced Reader s EditionI will also apologize that I didn t post a review soonerGarth Nix has never disappointed me He writes solid stories with imaginative systems for magic and plots that are not a rehashing of old familiar talesThis book stands very well on its own I have no idea if he intends to write tales in this world but if you are hesitant to pick up a nice fat book because you fear that at the end of all those pages you ll be left dangling off a cliff well No need to fear1Dedications in books always intrigue me and this one was no exception Dedicated to Alexandre Dumas Author of the Three Musketeers and all those seuels I loved those books And then it goes on to mention the 1973 74 movies The Three Musketeers and the Four Musketeers Movies that I truly enjoyed as well The setting for this lovely tale is a very alternative France There are indeed four friends who are drawn together to be our heroes There is a Cardinal There is a Milady But as mentioned above Garth Nix does not rehash old plots Yes there is a youngster intent on following in her mother s footsteps as a Musketeer Yes there are rivalries between the King s Guard the ueen s Musketeers and the Cardinal s Pursuivants Of course there is romance And magic such as I haven t seen beforeAngels Why of course there are angelsWill you enjoy this book if you ve never read Dumas and don t care for Museketeers in any media I believe you will If you do love Dumas and Musketeers I suspect your pleasure in the story will be a bit keener Recommended

Ung Sarancians who hold her interest Simeon a studious doctor in training; Henri a dedicated fortune hunter; Agnez an adventurous musketeer cadet; and Dorotea an icon maker and scholar of angelic magic They are the key to her uestThe four feel a strange kinship from the moment they meet but do not know why or suspect their importance All become pawns in Liliath’s grand scheme to fulfill her destiny and be united with the love of her life No matter the cost to everyone el. 25Unfortunately Angel Mage by Garth Nix was a book I really struggled with It had so many elements that I should have loved Angels that worshippers could call upon for aid a rogue angel that caused a devastating plague that could be spread if they were called upon a delusional bishop out to reunite with her love who happened to be said fallen angel Then there were a band of misfit characters who were the key to the bishop fulfilling her uest but could they stop her This was also pretty much female led which was nice to see in a church establishmentHowever I just couldn t sink my teeth into this one I found that it was lacking the depth that was sorely needed I couldn t see the motivation for any of the characters doing what they were doing In fact the characters seemed wooden stiff and almost caricature The plot was far too slow for my own personal tastes Although the magic system was cool I felt again it needed depth as certain parts didn t make any sense to meThis could have been a case of the wrong book at the wrong time as I had uite bad anxiety whilst I was reading and then I just felt really unwell I was having such a bad week I debated about whether posting this mini review but I felt the need to be honest about books I haven t enjoyed as well as the ones I haveI know many of you are Garth Nix fans so please don t be discouraged about reading this because I m sure many of you will enjoy it Sometimes certain books just don t work for certain peopleThank you for the review copy Gollancz

    Excuse me while I weep tears of joy Garth Nix's work was my introduction to in depth fantasy worlds and I feel like I owe so much of my taste in reading to Sabriel I'm also curious to see how this differs from the other things I've read from him since he's already gone on the record that this new adult fantasy is a new take from him and it's a stand alone Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN THIS IS A STANDALONE? cries I'm actually not kidding I'm really upset The world within ANGEL MAGE captivated me I mean it's basically Three Musketeers x Joan of Arc and in my opinion leaving it as a standalone leaves so much out? Not to mention it felt as if it was a trilogy opener What about Liliath? What about Rochefort and Dorotea? What about the Ystarans?Full review to come after I come to
