review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Garth Nix Free read Angel Mage í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB More than a century has passed since Liliath crept into the empty sarcophagus of Saint Marguerite fleeing the Fall of Ystara But she emerges from her magical sleep still beautiful looking no than nineteen and once again renews her single minded uest to be united with her lover Palleniel the archangel of YstaraA seemingly impossible uest but Liliath is one of the greatest practitioners of angelic magic to have ever lived summoning angels and forcing them to do her biddingLi. 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

review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Garth Nix Free read Angel Mage í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Liath knew that most of the inhabitants of Ystara died from the Ash Blood plague or were transformed into beastlings and she herself led the survivors who fled into neighboring Sarance Now she learns that angels shun the Ystaran’s descendants If they are touched by angelic magic their blood will turn to ash They are known as Refusers and can only live the most lowly livesBut Liliath cares nothing for the descendants of her people save how they can serve her It is four yo. I adored the Sabriel series so I am ALL OVER THIS

review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Garth Nix Free read Angel Mage í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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. UnsatisfyingThat 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 uestions it feels incomplete relationships are hinted at but not resolved characters receive sketchy outlines but don t get much depth and the plot builds and builds for hundreds of pages but is resolved almost effortlessly at the end Even the ending feels incomplete the events of the climax actually promise far interesting developments than anything else in the book but there s no time for that to be explored at allI see what Nix was going for in trying to evoke The Three Musketeers and there are times when that really works something about the prose in particular which brings it to life but he didn t uite hit the mark Angel Mage is too close and too far from Dumas at the same time and perhaps the best illustration of this is in the cast we have a Dartagnan a Rochefort and a Cardinal but they don t occupy their usual roles and the four protagonists map somewhat but not completely onto the Musketeers in a way that makes their almost closeness distracting than anything else The exact audience that will be drawn to this book for its Dumas esue style is the audience most likely to struggle with this not uite different enough castThe plot failed what I think of as the reverse sandwich test the sandwich test being whether or not the reader will put the book down to wander away and make a sandwich the reverse is whether the book is something the reader comes back to and genuinely wants to pick up I just didn t care enough to come back to it for weeks on end and had to set aside time to dig in and make progress or I wouldn t have made any When I sat down for an hour or so it was interesting and the pages flew by but there s no real momentum to the plot drawing me back in Events unfold at a glacial pace and without much of a sense of connection between one thing and another It also doesn t help that our four protagonists are reactive than active and that brings me to what I suspect is the major failing in the plot architectureLiliath She s the antagonist and she s the first perspective we get Throughout the book she continues to get POVs and so the reader always knows what her plans are can always see how she s several steps ahead of everyone else Not only does it rob the book of an element of mystery but it makes it abundantly clear to the reader how much the protagonists don t do Each step of their journey is orchestrated by Liliath each choice anticipated to perfection except at the very end which doesn t feel earned because there s no rising action to support it and they become less protagonists chess pieces There s something interesting in watching a master manipulator at work but even that is lost because frankly Liliath s scheming isn t actually very complex when you get right down to it and it never uite feels like anything big is at stakeThe biggest missed opportunity in my opinion is Rochefort a morally grey lesbian standing at the intersection of political and religious power struggling with her sense of duty and a potential affection for someone she can t have a relationship with a gifted mage with some unusual abilities which go wholly unexplained view spoilerWhy is she the only one other than Dorothea who can see the shadows of Palleniel We ll never know hide spoiler
