9780143124863: Angelopolis (Angelology 2)

A decade has passed since the events of Angelology when Verlaine saw Evangeline alight from the Brooklyn Bridge, shocking him with the sight of her new wings. Verlaine is now an elite angel hunter for the Society of Angelology, dedicated to killing all of Evangeline's kind. He realises she is nothing like the other angels and when she is abducted in front of him by the society's most wanted criminal he sets of on a chase. He follows the pair from Paris to Russia and deep into Siberia where the truth of Evangeline's origins awaits, along with forces that could destroy them.

Review:

'Angelopolis is Trussoni's tighter and more engaging sequel to Angelology... Trussoni fires up the engine. Verlaine and his pack of angel hunters are far more entertaining and energetic than the tweedy academics of Angelology... the ending is impressively chilling, with its showdown in a prison housing thousands of angelic creatures, the Angelopolis of the title. Trussoni describes it in terrifying terms: a tightly guarded panopticon. And the book closes on a cliffhanger that sets up a whopper of a third installment.' New York Times

'This sequel to the bestselling Angelology encompasses Russia's imperial past, modern genetics and more.' Booktime Magazine

'Wow! Just, WOW! I absolutely loved this book and really can't praise it enough. It was evocative, captivating, haunting and had a very understated elegance to it.The storyline is fast-paced and convincing... Angelopolis is one of those books that I will read several times as I know it will take more than one reading for me to feel like I've extracted every last sip of story from it!' A Hell of a Woman

'A grand adventure, written in grand style, Trussoni's characters are real and almost tangible, with the same faults, failings and passions as anyone else....Angelopolis is fast-paced and exciting, with mystery and suspense, love, old feuds, and unreal creatures that would entrance humans if they could only see them for what they are. It is like the very best of a spy thriller mixed with the very best of a fantasy adventure. Time to go to in the ground, vampires the angels have arrived.' We Love This Book

'There were some great scenes with some of the more prominent angels and I loved learning more about the different types and hierarchies of angels.' Fiction is Stranger than Fact'

'The focus of the book is a real departure from the first one, the world that Danielle creates is so believable one almost begins to believe all this is going on about us and we are unaware of it.... a great romp!' --Lesbians of North London Blog

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 211 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A stunning follow-up to the best-seller Angelology. . . Part historical novel, fantasy, love story, thriller, and mystery. . . It s a must-read. -- Booklist (starred review) A New York Times bestseller and global sensation, Angelology unfurled a brilliant tapestry of myth and biblical lore on our present-day world and plunged two star-crossed heroes into an ancient battle against mankind s greatest enemy: the fatally attractive angel-human hybrids known as the Nephilim. With Angelopolis, the conflict deepens into an inferno of danger and passion unbound. A decade has passed since Verlaine saw Evangeline alight from the Brooklyn Bridge, the sight of her new wings a betrayal that haunts him still. Now an elite angel hunter for the Society of Angelology, he pursues his mission with single-minded devotion: to capture, imprison, and eliminate her kind. But when Evangeline suddenly appears on a twilit Paris street, Verlaine finds her nature to be unlike any of the other creatures he so mercilessly pursues, casting him into a spiral of doubt and confusion that only grows when she is abducted before his eyes by a creature who has topped the society s most-wanted list for more than a century. The ensuing chase drives Verlaine and his fellow angelologists from the shadows of the Eiffel Tower to the palaces of St. Petersburg and deep into the provinces of Siberia and the Black Sea coast, where the truth of Evangeline s origins--as well as forces that could restore or annihilate them all--lie in wait. Conceived against an astonishing fresh tableau of history and science, Angelopolis plumbs Russia s imperial past, modern genetics, and ancient depictions of that most potent angelic appearance--the Annunciation of Gabriel--in a high-octane tale of abduction, treasure seeking, and divine warfare as the fate of humanity once again hangs in the balance.
