9781921857669: Fire Angels

Book 2 of the Dion Chronicles Reunited with the family she left behind as a child, Dion finds her cherished homeland of Moria overrun by marauding Witch Hunters and dreaded Fire Angels. She soon realizes that she must use her awesome powers to help save her land and its people from the crushing grip of the Great Destroyer. Finding herself thrust into a morass of court intrigue, political conspiracy, and furious passion, Dion is forced to confront the deadly, seductive world of demons. Ultimately it is her strength of will, and the pure heart and bravery of the man she loves which will serve as her only weapons against the arch necromancer who would make her his queen. Winner of the Aurealis Award 1998 "An accomplished fantasy of maturity and depth . . . While many genre fantasies simply add magic to political intrigue, Routley's are noteworthy for the natural and inevitable intertwining of the two. Well-drawn backgrounds and characters add to the appeal, as Routley produces another fantasy that can be read for more than myth or pyrotechnics, accelerating her rise as one of the genre's bright new stars." -Publishers Weekly "The story grabs the reader and makes Fire Angels such a pleasure. Strange creatures and stranger characters. Mystical locales. Enviable abilities. Compelling situations. It never occurs to doubt the possibility of the tale, only to hurry to learn the fate of the people and places between the covers." -Lisa DuMond, SF Site "Compelling . . . evocative . . . intriguing." -the magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

Review:

Australia is producing a flourishing crop of fantasy writers, including Isobelle Carmody, with her award-winning Obernewtyn series; Garth Nix, author of Sabriel, in which the heroine invokes magic by ringing handbells; and Jane Routley, with her debut novel Mage Heart and its sequel, Fire Angels. Routley creates a powerful character in Dion Holyhands, a strong-headed young woman who also just happens to be the most potent mage in the land of Moria. Exiled from Moria and estranged from her family, she is eking out a living as a healer in the neighboring country of Gallia. Her brothers come to beg her assistance in rescuing her older sister Tasha, who has been broadcasting terrifying dreams of possession by demons. Despite her fears of further persecution in Moria, Dion returns, only to become an unwilling pawn in the contest for Moria's throne. Fire Angels combines an epic story with engaging characters and a passionate romance, and even leaves room for further sequels. The only objection, and it's a minor one, is Routley's confusing use of titles and names--more consistency and inventiveness ("Moria" will forever be associated with Tolkien, for example) would have been nice. --Blaise Selby

About the Author:
