VIDEOThe icon-maker and angel-summoner Liliath, long believed dead, has woken from her century-long sleep to pick up the threads of a plan that has already destroyed one kingdom and may yet destroy another. To succeed, Liliath must bring together Agnez the musketeer; Simeon the doctor; Dorotea the mage; and Henri, one of the Cardinal's clerks, and take them into utmost danger ...
Set in an alternate 17th century where angels can be summoned (and controlled) by those with a talent for magic, Angel Mage is an action-packed story of angels, heroes, gunpowder and high magic. ISBN: 9781760630904 Publication Date: 01 / 10 / 2019 Pages: 496 Dimensions: 153 x 234mm Untitled Angel Mage presents a rich world with a diverse cast of characters and a complex mix of religion and magic. Over a century ago one of the most powerful practitioners of angelic magic, Liliath, fled the fall of Ystara by creeping into Saint Marguerite’s empty sarcophagus and entering into a magical sleep. Now a century later Liliath awakens, ready to begin again her quest to be reunited with Palleniel, the archangel of Ystara. Liliath cannot do this alone. Four unknowing young Sarancians are the key to her mission: Simeon, a medical student, Henri, a fortune hunter, Agnez, a musketeer cadet and Dorotea, a scholar and icon maker. The four are brought together by the scheming of Liliath and feel a strange sense of kinship between them. The descendants of the Ystaran people and the four young Sarancians become pieces in Liliath’s game, and she will let nothing get in the way of achieving her goal. - David (QBD) Christine, 03/10/2019 Untitled Garth Nix has written another masterpiece.
