A stunning new fantasy masterpiece from internationally bestselling author Garth Nix

Angel Mage is Garth Nix’s highly anticipated new standalone fantasy novel. Brilliant, dazzling, action-packed and vividly imagined, Angel Mage is Garth Nix at his very best. Think The Three Musketeers, kick-ass female characters and magic all set in an alternate 17th century. Masterfully constructed, Garth Nix’s world-building is superb and will enthral his legions of fans and ensure Angel Mage is his newest bestseller. 

‘Snatch up your hat, swirl on your cloak, take up your sword, and essay forth into the night on the adventure I have set before you’—GARTH NIX


About the book

Angel Mage by Garth Nix
Allen & Unwin, October 2019

The 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.
