Angelopolis by: Danielle Trussoni

Title: Angelopolis
Author: Danielle Trussoni
Publisher: Penquin
Pages: 400
Format: ebook ARC
Source: NetGalley

Description:


Danielle Trussoni's bestselling first novel, Angelology, wove biblical lore, the Orpheus myth, and Milton's Rebel Angels into a present-day world tinged with the divine supernatural. The novel plunged two endearing isolatoes -- art historian V. A. Verlaine and Evangeline, a beautiful young nun--into an ancient battle between a secret society and mankind's most insidious enemies: angel-human hybrids known as the Nephilim.

Now a decade has passed since Verlaine saw Evangeline alight from the Brooklyn Bridge, the sight of her wings a betrayal that haunts him still. The Nephilim are again on the rise, scheming to construct their own paradise -- the Angelopolis -- and ruthlessly pursued by Verlaine in his new calling as an angel hunter. But when Evangeline materializes, Verlaine is besieged by doubts that will only grow as forces more powerful than even the Nephilim draw them from Paris to St. Petersburg and deep into the provinces of Siberia and the Black Sea coast. A high-octane tale of abduction and liberation, treasure seeking and divine warfare, Angelopolis plumbs Russia's imperial past, modern genetics, and the archangel Gabriel's famous visitations to conceive a fresh tableau of history and myth that will, once again, enthrall readers the world over.

My Thoughts: 

This book was sent to me via NetGalley and after talking to Jane at Penquin about this I've also got other things to include in the post.

In the beginning we see Evangeline who is on her way to France to see a great uncle.The last time she was seen was about three years ago.  With the Watchers caught, and Angelogists trying to stop dark Angels from getting the upper hand.  Also Verlaine is looking for Evangeline.  This book was full of action and adventure I really enjoyed the journey the author takes you on. 

This book would be great for people who love history, different countries including Russia, Paris.  Also great for Angel lovers out there!  Can't wait for the third book!

I also got a party kit you can get here: Party Kit and Angelologist Georche which are great little things you can do with book clubs.  I looked through these and they look like a ton of fun and something everyone can enjoy!
