A high fantasy adventure full of pistols, swashbuckling, angels and heroes, Angel Mage is also a breathtaking story about love and power, obsession and passion.

Winner of the 2019 Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Novel


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 alternative seventeenth 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.
Industry Reviews
Praise for Angel Mage:

'A splendid high fantasy full of adventure, pistols, swashbuckling, angels and heroes, Angel Mage reads like a stirring opera building towards a dramatic crescendo. At the same time, it also reads a bit like your favourite classic adventure novel. This is a breathtaking story about love and power, obsession and passion. In other words... pure gold!' - Booktopia (Sarah McDuling)

'Nix's complex system of angelic magic, and the toll it takes, is fascinating, and he weaves an exciting adventure full of intrigue and action while portraying women in power in a refreshingly casual way. An original and gripping adventure.' - Kirkus, starred review

'The vivid characters ... jump off the pages. Plenty of embellishments ... enhance the more personal aspects of the story: scary beastlings, brutal battles, and the harnessed power of angelic magic.' - Booklist, starred review

'Angel Mage is a wonderful standalone book with a diverse, inclusive cast for teen readers and anyone who loves adventure.' - Books+Publishing

'The most original magic I've seen in years' - Joe Abercrombie, bestselling author of the First Law series

'There is no joy like returning to the Old Kingdom. Once again, Nix sets the standard for fantasy, bringing us a tale full of old friends and new enemies, gruesome monsters, and heroines of wit, will, and imagination.' (Leigh Bardugo, New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows and The Grisha Trilogy)

'Goldenhand reaffirms why Nix is a master of the genre: his exquisitely detailed world-building is unparalleled, and his characters are so tremendously alive and compelling that I'm convinced there's Charter Magic in every word.' (Sarah J. Maas, author of the best-selling Throne of Glass series)

'Garth Nix is one of the best worldbuilders in fantasy, and this book is merely further proof. I love the Old Kingdom series, and Goldenhand is an excellent continuation, packed with the excitement and passion of a storytelling virtuoso at the height of his abilities.'
