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.
