  1. I picked up Angel Mage because of the Locus review and thought it was excellent — a slow start while while introducing the 4 characters (cognate to 3 musketeers + D’Artagnan, but they’re all new to the great city), then steadily building until it looked like there would have to be another book — and then Nix wrapped it up cleanly while leaving room for another free-standing story.
