Alisha-Dear Constant Reader
Angelopolis is a disaster of a book.

 photo tumblr_inline_mik4geVQ0r1qz4rgp_zpsc68e4406.gif

It begins well, with our hero from book #1, Verlaine, and his meeting with Evangeline. Evangeline is taken by Eno, an evil Emin angel, which is the start of our adventure to Dullsville.

Trussoin spends an incredible number of pages dedicated to what each type of angel looks like, and what they do. Equally, the dedication to Noah and his seed catalog is tiresomely drawn out.

What is lacking from Angelopolis is a point. Verlaine MUST get Evangeline back becaus

Ugh. Where to begin?

I was always in two minds about Angelology. On the one hand I really loved the concept of the world, and had a fondness for the main characters Evangeline and Verlaine, but a rubbish ending (when there was no promise of a sequel to follow) made me feel it was just overall poorly executed.

Then I read this and redefined my idea of what poorly executed means.

It’s as if this wasn’t edited at all. Like the publishers received a terrible manuscript and thought: what the hell, it wi

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.

Today I read a short extract from the sequel "Angelopolis", reintroducing us to Evangeline who was on the way to see her Great Uncle back in France. It has been three years since we last saw our heroine, but in just these few short page

In June 2010, I read Angelology in virtually one sitting. After finishing it, I would periodically check to see if there was a publication release date for a sequel. So, after three years of anticipation, I eagerly began the sequel. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. Though I never felt lost in the sequel, it left me rather unsatisfied. 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 ...more

Note: I read the Chinese translation of this book, and I will merely run a simple list about the pros and cons of this novel:

(1) The research and the mythology are awesome. (at least it seems awesome enough to me)

(2) The story takes us to different parts of the world, and the description of different landscapes is nice.

(3) My rating of angel-related series (including YA, Japanese manga and novels for adults): Angel Sanctuary >> Daughter of Smoke and Bone series >> Angelology series &

I really really wanted to love this book. I consider Angelology one of my favourite books however this sequel was left short for me because WHERE is Evangeline? She was my absolute favourite character and I found her presence in this book more or less lacking. I did not understand why *spoiler* Evangeline surrendered to the Enim angel when she would surely know what would happen to her? The author claims it was to signal to Verlaine that she was not an 'evil' angel, however only pages previously ...more

I thought Angelology by Danielle Trussoni was wonderful! The minute I reached the last page, I was impatient for the next book. I can tell you that it was well worth the long wait for book II in the series, Angelopolis . According to her own tweets, the author went to a convent to do some research on writing about a nun as a character. She left there instead, with the idea of writing a book about angels. I can tell you that I am glad she did. This series is rare in its sophisticated and well res ...more

I think this was okay, but only if you don't really pay too much attention to detail. You know, facts that are wrong or sentences that make no sense or things that are mentioned once but later seem to be forgotten completely, even if they had something to do with the plot (supposedly)... Then again, I am very sure that most people that read this are neither as old and cynical as I am, and that they read this a lot faster with less attention to details than I did. Since I read this due to a proj ...more

I was waiting for this book; Angelology, although not without faults, had an interesting premise, more-or-less coherent storyline and a cliff-hanger; I was curious "what's next". Next turned to be a major disappointment. 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 lectu ...more

Like the first book in this series, this one has a lot of action and plenty of conspiracy theories plus a dash of romance. From Paris to Moscow to Bulgaria and finally Siberia the Angelologists chase their enemies and do battle all while a conspiracy is outlined that runs from the time of Noah up through the Romanov Tsars of Russia and into the present day. Archeology, Faberge eggs and a real life Panopticon are involved. It is an entertaining mix of action and conspiracy but it doesn't quite co ...more

ANGELOPOLIS, BY DANIELLE TRUSSONI (Book 2 of Angelology)

I read the first book in this series, Angelology, a few years ago, when it was first published. Honestly, I didn't like it enough to re-read it, but I thought I'd give the sequel a chance, especially since it ended in a major cliffhanger.

Synopsis: Ten years after the events told in Angelology, Verlaine is now an accomplished angelologist, and Evangeline hasn't been heard of. One day, she resurfaces, gives him one of the missing Fabergé eggs

I much preferred this book to the first in the series. 10 years have passed and Evangeline is the most desired creature on the planet. She is not like other nephilim, she is more pure. She is hunted by the badass Eno and twin brothers of her grandfather Percival (who were cloned from him? I think). I probably could have given this book 4 stars, but several things were just not done well enough to my liking. (view spoiler) ...more

Desde os seis anos que Danielle queria ser escritora e, se a sua primeira experiência falhou, vinte anos depois o seu primeiro livro foi publicado e foi nomeado como um dos melhores livros de 2006 sendo o início de uma carreira que apesar de pouco prolífera já tem dado que falar. Para além disso, escreveu artigos para diversas revistas, tem um bacharelato em História e Inglês e um MFA em Escrita Ficcional.

How I Came To Read This Book: A free copy showed up in my mailbox to review.

The Plot: Ugh I'm really annoyed because I wrote a review & then of course, GoodReads deleted it when I hit submit. Anyway. This book picks up 10 years after the first one. Verlaine hasn't seen his partner-in-crime, the nun that's more than she appears, Evangeline, since that day. Since then he's become an angelologist under the tutelage of Bruno. The story picks up with the two of them in Paris, where a series of ev

The Watchers are still captured and in the safest place possible for the humans who walk the earth. The angelologists are in locations across he globe doing their very best to stop the dark angel groups one by one.

I read the first book in this series - Angelology - 3 years ago. Unfortunately, I don't remember that much about the book. I liked it, I remember that. I remembered that it ended on a cliffhanger which bummed me out. Now, years later, I am reading the sequel - Angelology.

The story kept me going - a little Da Vinci Code-like in the movement of the plot. I wish I could remember who all these people are! But that is not the author's fault. I think I remember liking the first book better.

So the first one was imaginative and entertaining, not without its flaws, but fun to read. This one was not like that at all. There were pages and pages of info dump that had very little relevance to the story and which seemed to make the most random and overreaching connections-- Chanel, really? Whatever. This was punctuated by bits of fast paced action, which was pretty good. 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 ...more

Na začátku: "Tvoje krev?" - "Modrá."
Na konci: "Má krev červenou, ne modrou."
Hustý! Taky bych během několika dní chtěla umět změnit barvu svojí krve! Taková růžová by byla vážně stylová.

Ano, bylo to o něco lepší než Angelologie, občas jsem se i bavila, ale tolik nepřesností a navzájem se popírajících informací jsem pohromadě snad nikdy neviděla. Očividně i sama Trussoniová se do toho svého blábolu pěkně zamotala.

I read an except this morning of Angelopolis...loved it! I read Angelology last year and immediately wanted more, and had successfully tamped down my enthusiasm knowing that I would have to wait until 2012 before the next book came out.

Now that I've read the excerpt, I'm all worked up about it again. I definitely recommend Angelology, read it first so you're ready for Angelopolis too!

I adored "Angelology", but I cannot say the same for "Angelopolis". Evangeline, our enigmatic nun-turned-angel barely flutters through the pages, while ex-lover Verlaine stalks and stomps doing not much else. Now, months down the track, I actually haven’t the foggiest memory of the plot.

Like "Angelology", its sequel is very overwritten; but the rich, pretty details may well be its saving grace – Durer etchings and the egg line theory, a compelling treatise on the Faberge egg, and most of all, th

Well, it was much better than the first book.

It kind of read like a Dan Brown book, in that they cover a lot of ground - literally (there's a nice section where they're traveling on the Trans Siberian rail) - all in pursuit of clues to some esoteric and ancient mystery involving the Watcher angels and Nephilim. I was pretty intrigued by it, even if much of the dialogue seemed very expository.

One of the reviewers noted that there was very little character development, and I have to agree with tha

This book wasn't quite what I was expecting. I adored Angelology, mainly because it was so unique and new. 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. Well researched and thought out, Danielle Trussoni had taken the apocryphal ideas of the Watchers and the Nephilim (from the Bible and the Book of Enoch) and turned it into a brilliant fictional account of a girl who wasn't what she thought she ...more

Danielle Trussoni in the second book of this series that began with Angelology focuses on interweaving discoveries of research on the physical composition of angel’s DNA, etc. and the imminent major battle between humans and angels. Verlaine, an “angel hunter,” finds the angel Evangeline dead, lying in a pool of blood. He is totally smitten by her and yet knows his secret love is an obstacle to his mission of killing all angels and their angel-human peers. Evangeline is a Nephilim angel, a pure ...more

"...angels existed on hearth as well as in heaven..." . The Bible refers to them as "Sons of God" (Genesis 6:1-4): in terms as controversial as cryptic, we are told that at some point during the ante-deluvian era, God's heavenly creatures "saw" the daughters of men, took them as wives in an act of rebellion to the Maker, and gave origin to the Nephilim, an hybrid offspring of humans and fallen angels.
