I liked it, I remember that. I much preferred this book to the first in the series. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. I was interested to see what happened to the main character from the last book, but didn’t get to see much of her–howe So the first one was imaginative and entertaining, not without its flaws, but fun to read. The storyline is convoluted, choppy, new characters are introduced, then dropped like hot potato, they advance the plot somehow, and we never hear of them again; the writing is really clumsy, virtually everyone in the book speaks in exactly same, wooden, “let me give you a lecture” style.

Those are the male characters, of course; the female ones are so ridiculous I wouldn’t even daniwlle them characters. The Watchers are still captured and in the safest place possible for the humans who walk angelopoils earth. Overall though, I feel like it took trussooni flaws of the first book and expounded on them in this one.

While I’m discussing things that don’t exist, let’s talk about the title. The first book, in my memory at least, was a lushly written, layered novel that blended different periods in time with different narrative styles to create a unique debut.

It has received a number of pre-publication endorsements, most notably from Cheryl Strayedwho wrote: I read an except this morning of Angelopolis Verlaine, inquiring about a possible connection between a prior abbess of the convent and Abigail Aldrich Rockefeller, the famous real-life philanthropist of the arts. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

It has been three years since we last saw our heroine, but in just these few short page It has been four long months since I read “Angelology” by Danielle Trussoni; it was a book that I needed a week to recover from, I needed my mind to sink back into real life and to tear it’s self away from Characters that I had fallen in love with or grew to hate. The war between humans and Nephilim has roots as deep as the history of mankind itself, and it’s now being conducted on a genetic ground by a secret society of angelologists who won’t hesitate to use weapons and headhunters to capture the rebel angels and subdue them.


This is more of a personal feeling, but this book just didn’t have the same feel of the first. It seemed like a cross between really good urban fantasy and excellent religious fiction with a twist of the biblical scholarly type book thrown in. I liked that he had angelic help. It looks better in person than in pictures.

Though I never felt lost in the sequel, it left me rather unsatisfied. Danie,le, could he be more than we ever imagined him to be?

Someone paid for this to be published?! Like the first book in this series, this one has a lot of action and plenty of conspiracy theories plus a dash of romance.

Of course, there are probably more competing interpretations of the Bible than there are actual people in the world. The bittersweet humanity of the tale maintains the story, so that while fiction it in no way harbors the preternatural nature that would alienate the reader from its contents. What had she been doing all this time? Reading the prequel Angelology was published in before approaching this latest release is not absolutely imperative in order to enjoy world setup and character building: I also enjoyed the twist with the Tzarina, and Rasputin.

Finally, the conclusion is horribly thrown together, and an ridiculous cliffhanger is tacked to the last page. While the Russian peasants starved, workers toiled on such delights as a perfect miniature replica of the Coronation carriage that took 15 months to make working hour days.


I read the first book in this series – Angelology – 3 years ago. Long story short – the book seems to be hastily slapped together, the editor didn’t help much – for ex. The FortressTrussoni’s second memoir, tells the story of her move to a medieval fortress in the village of Aubais in the Languedoc region of the south of France with her husband.

Angelopolis, the follow up to Angelology, was a New York Times bestseller and was described as “a must-read” by Booklist.

Archeology, Faberge eggs and a real life Panopticon are involved. Mar 23, Mizuki rated it liked it Shelves: And there were elements that worked well here – I especially liked the historical artefacts that wove their way into the story – the Faberge eggs, Rasputin I also agree with the problem referred to in the review by Beth Fish Readswhich is that the very end of the Second Book, like the end of the first, was just not consistent with everything else we had been led to believe.

This identification had been taken from the dead angel. This story is no fairy tale in body or ending, nor is the plot boring or obvious in the page turning. I read Angelology last year and immediately wanted more, and had successfully tamped down my enthusiasm knowing that I would have to wait until before the next book came out. Equally, the dedication to Noah and his seed catalog is tiresomely drawn out.

There were really good secondary characters and plot lines to explain more of the backstory, but it felt like we were swiftly carried through the details in order to get us to further advance the timeline. What do they really want?

An appendix would be invaluable.
