Publisher's Summary

A thrilling epic about an ancient clash reignited in our time - between a hidden society and heaven's darkest creatures.

"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them." - Genesis 6:5

Sister Evangeline was just a girl when her father entrusted her to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in upstate New York. Now, at 23, her discovery of a 1943 letter from the famous philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller to the late mother superior of Saint Rose Convent plunges Evangeline into a secret history that stretches back a thousand years: an ancient conflict between the Society of Angelologists and the monstrously beautiful descendants of angels and humans, the Nephilim.

For the secrets these letters guard are desperately coveted by the once-powerful Nephilim, who aim to perpetuate war, subvert the good in humanity, and dominate mankind. Generations of angelologists have devoted their lives to stopping them, and their shared mission, which Evangeline has long been destined to join, reaches from her bucolic abbey on the Hudson to the apex of insular wealth in New York, to the Montparnasse cemetery in Paris and the mountains of Bulgaria.

Rich in history, full of mesmerizing characters, and wondrously conceived, Angelology blends biblical lore, the myth of Orpheus, and the Miltonic visions of Paradise Lost into a riveting tale of ordinary people engaged in a battle that will determine the fate of the world.

    "Can't Finish!"

    I couldn't get over the ridiculous concept of a formal profession and university, secretly studying angels. Where would this profession derive income? Who would fund scholarships? Why go there? Why not just make the study of Angels a facet of catholic mysticism? It just added fluff to the story. The story DRAGGED, and DRAGGED, I am over half way, and I don't think I can go back to this. This book was the first audiobook overcome by my Platinum subscription!

    "Had to stop listening"

    An interesting concept with a lot of potential -- the ancient race of Nephilim (from the Book of Genesis) are alive and well and out to subjugate the human race. I found the writing to be so bad, however, that I occasionally laughed out loud. It's a tie with Dan Brown's for the worst writing on the best-seller list. I got about two-thirds of the way through, hoping that the information dumps would give way, at the very least, to some interesting plot points, but finally gave up.

    "I want my time back!"

    Painful. Confusing. Anticlimactic. Predictable!!!

    "SLOW"

    The premise of this book is very good, but it get lost in all the extra words. I think this book probably is a better read than a listen. I am almost through the first part, but don't think I can get finish it up.

    "Loved this Book!!"

    i absolutely loved this book!!!!!

    i am a avid listener to audio books and most reviews i read are about the narrator. i think you should spend more time listening to the book than the person speaking the words!!!

    i would deifinately recommend this one!
