An Evening with Garth Nix- in Conversation with RJ Barker

Tuesday 15th October 2019
19:00 at Waterstones, Newcastle

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Garth Nix, author of the wonderful 'Sabriel' novels, is coming here to talk about his brand new book,' Angel Mage', a standalone epic fantasy novel about magic, love, acceptance, and destiny. He will be in conversation with the brilliant RJ Barker, author of 'Age of Assassins'.

More than a century has passed since Liliath crept into the empty sarcophagus of Saint Marguerite, fleeing the fall of her country, Ystara. But she emerges from her magical sleep still beautiful, looking no more than nineteen, and once again renews her single-minded quest to be united with her lover, Palleniel, the archangel of Ystara.

Liliath’s quest centres round four young Sarancians, all seemingly different but who share something very important. There is Simeon, a studious doctor-in-training; Henri, a dedicated fortune hunter; Agnez, an adventurous musketeer; and Dorotea, an icon-maker and scholar of angelic magic.

The four feel a strange, immediate kinship for each other from the moment they meet, but they do not know why, or suspect their importance. Only Liliath knows their secret, and she aims to draw them in to her complex plot, just as she manipulates the Queen and her musketeers and everyone else around here.

The four friends must learn to rely on each other and each of their unique skills if they’re going to stand a chance to outwit Liliath and the angels she commands.
