Taking on this issue is author Michael Carney whose newest release, The Academy of Secrets, is book one of the Outcast Angels series. The OUTCAST ANGELS are a ragtag group of former angels exiled from Heaven at the time of the Great Rebellion.

The world is in grave danger if a long-missing artefact falls into the hands of the Academy of Secrets, a group whose members have gained unnatural powers through alchemy. And Chrymos, a young woman snatched from the streets of Naples, may hold the key. 

The OUTCAST ANGELS, a ragtag group of former angels exiled from Heaven at the time of the Great Rebellion, are desperately trying to stop the Academy. But they face an uphill battle against alchemy-enhanced humans who can become invisible, cast illusions and create storms and tornadoes. 

Will the Academy recover the missing artefact? What part will Chrymos play? And will the prophecies of the demon Nekhbet — that the artefact’s recovery will trigger the Lost War — come true? Find out in this fast-paced historical fantasy set in Renaissance Italy. 

ACADEMY OF SECRETS is the first novel in the LOST WAR cycle, part of the OUTCAST ANGELS series by MICHAEL CARNEY.

In the decades since, Michael has carved out a career in advertising and marketing, as a copywriter, Media Director, Strategic Planning Director and Online Marketing specialist. These days he writes and administers online training courses covering a range of Social Media Marketing and eCommerce topics at

In addition to writing a towering inferno of newsletters, reports and presentations Michael is the author of “Trade Me Success Secrets” (first and second editions), the top-selling book about NZ’s online auction site Trade Me.

In his spare time, Michael has also written (and mostly directed) a number of well-received stage plays over the years, some aimed at children and young adults, others produced for Christian audiences.

Michael has been planning out the exploits of the OUTCAST ANGELS for many years.
