When Sister Evangeline finds mysterious correspondence between Mother Innocenta of the Saint Rose Convent and legendary philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller, it confirms Angels walked among us - and their descendants, the cruel Nephilim, still do. Indeed, the Nephilim are hunting for artefacts concealed by Abigail Rockefeller during the Second World War - objects that will ultimately allow them to enslave mankind - and have so far been prevented from reaching their apocalyptic goal by one, clandestine organisation: The Angelology Society. And if the Angelologists are to stand any chance of winning this new battle in the ages-old war, they must find the artefacts first. But their fate rests in the hands of innocent Sister Evangeline, who holds the key to unlocking Abigail Rockefeller's hiding places ...and whose own destiny may yet find her prey to the terrifying Nephilim army, with horrifying consequences for humanity.Read Less

Going back to Genesis for some decent villains.
'Angelology' is essentially what apocryphal/religious pulp fiction looks like when it is decently written, so I certainly hope that the masses who clamor after Dan Brown's latest will give this a try.
Danielle Trussoni is wonderfully inventive here, imagining an entire race of nephilim, those giants who walked the earth in the book of Genesis. The issue at stake is a celestial lyre which could reverse an illness which has struck down many of the nephilim, if they can get their hands on it.
While the action and the thrills of the novel are pretty well blocked out and executed, what is unfortunately lacking is a real connection to the two main characters. Some level of characterization seemed to be missing, and I think that whatever it is would have made the entire story more captivating for me. These people are our 'in' to the fascinating world of the angelologists, and I felt slightly left on the outside.
Be that as it may, I will definitely read the sequel (which I assume is in the works) to see how Trussoni grows as an author, and to follow the epic struggle between humanity and the nephilim, and hopefully I will be rewarded with a deeper connection to the protagonists. All in all, I wish I could give this 3 and a half stars, because it IS better than average.
