    Unsatisfying. That's what I keep coming back to when I think about this book, as sad as that makes me. Every strength it has ends up being a weakness when promises go unfulfilled: the worldbuilding is intriguing, but raises so many questions it feels incomplete; relationships are hi...

    I've been a fan of Garth Nix since I first read Sabriel more years ago than I care to remember so of course I was ridiculously excited to read his new stand alone fantasy novel, Angel Mage. This story was inspired by his love of The Three Musketeers but with added magic. He has created...

    I remember owning a couple of books from this author?s Abhorsen series years ago but I never read them. Even this book wasn?t on my radar, but when I happened to read the synopsis around the time of its release, I thought it was a bit different from my usual reads and wanted to giv...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/10/20/... Since this was my first time reading Garth Nix, I really had no idea what to expect. With the exception of his Old Kingdom series, his books have always given me the impression of being skewed towards young...

    There are a lot of things that are great about this book, and Nix is an awesome writer, but the angelic magic part was just not for me. And the end was kind of... I don't know.. rushed? too open? It feels like I am missing a part of the ending for some reason, even though I know I don'...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) I'm kind of obsessed with Garth Nix. The Sabriel books practically raised me. They were one of the first books series I read where I felt a connection to the character an...

    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...

    Crap!! ????? I did not love this... This is written like an actual classic (like Dumas, those kind) and that really threw me off. I wanted to know the main mystery behind lillath, but the answers didn't really come until the last 5% of the book. Parts were fun and I love...

    ARC provided by the publisher, Gollancz, in exchange for an honest review. 2.5 stars. Angel Mage is a stand-alone fantasy novel that engages with its fascinating magic, but less so in its plot and character development. I've enjoyed Garth Nix's Abhorsen trilogy and was particu...

    3.5/5 Honestly, this is not as good as I hoped it would be. I absolutely love Garth Nix's books, but this was sort of...lacklustre. I didn't connect with any of the characters, the world didn't feel fully fleshed out, and I truly think this would've done better as a duology. I have ...

    I received a review copy of Angel Mage from the publisher via Edelweiss. First off, I have to say I've always been a big Garth Nix fan. Between Sabriel, Mister Monday, Have Sword Will Travel and the rest, he does a magnificent job with world building. Angel Mage was no different. I...

    2.5 Unfortunately 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...

    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 ...

    Yada yada star system yada yada Before I get into Angel Mage by Garth Nix, let me clarify two important points. 1. I have absolutely no background on the Three Musketeers beyond the general knowledge of its existence in both literature and the chocolate bar. 2. This is the f...
