Publisher's Summary

"She rose into the currents of icy air...."

A New York Times best seller and global sensation, Angelology unfurled a brilliant tapestry of myth and biblical lore on our present-day world and plunged two star-crossed heroes into an ancient battle against mankind's greatest enemy: the fatally attractive angel-human hybrids known as the Nephilim. With Angelopolis, the conflict deepens into an inferno of danger and passion unbound.

A decade has passed since Verlaine saw Evangeline alight from the Brooklyn Bridge, the sight of her new wings a betrayal that haunts him still. Now an elite angel hunter for the Society of Angelology, he pursues his mission with single-minded devotion: to capture, imprison, and eliminate her kind.

But when Evangeline suddenly appears on a twilit Paris street, Verlaine finds her nature to be unlike any of the other creatures he so mercilessly pursues, casting him into a spiral of doubt and confusion that only grows when she is abducted before his eyes by a creature who has topped the society's most-wanted list for more than a century. The ensuing chase drives Verlaine and his fellow angelologists from the shadows of the Eiffel Tower to the palaces of St. Petersburg and deep into the provinces of Siberia and the Black Sea coast, where the truth of Evangeline's origins - as well as forces that could restore or annihilate them all - lie in wait.

Conceived against an astonishing fresh tableau of history and science, Angelopolis plumbs Russia’s imperial past, modern genetics, and ancient depictions of that most potent angelic appearance - the Annunciation of Gabriel - in a high-octane tale of abduction, treasure seeking, and divine warfare as the fate of humanity once again hangs in the balance.

    "Deeper mysteries"

    I really liked the first book in this series, and the second one didn't disappoint. Some questions were answered from the first book, and new questions emerged... I would say that this book did not include as many technical details about the discipline of angelology as the first book did, and that's a good thing. I listened to it practically in one sitting, and the last line has me eager for the next installment!

    Story
    "What a difference a good narrator makes!"

    I had read the first book in the series and barely tolerated it. At the time, I had a feeling it was the narrator's fault (some woman who insisted in reading most of the book with an extremely grating and fake French accent). I might have been right.

    I actually found this one, the second in the series, by looking for books read by Edoardo Ballerini (I absolutely love his voice). What a difference it makes to have him read Trussoni's novel! Yes, the story is full of silliness and has many holes (it's a book about angels in our midst -- most of them extremely evil beings -- so what did you expect?), but I found it to be highly entertaining.

    Will definitely listen to the next one (the ending of the book makes it very clear Trussoni is not done)...as long as it's read by a decent voice -- hopefully Ballerini's.

    "A Solid Sequel"

    I've said it before, I'll say it again. It's hard to find really good angel fiction. It's even harder to find a worthy sequel when you do find one. This series has exceeded all of my expectations.

    Picking up some 10 years after Angelology, this novel follows Verlaine, giving us more of both Evangeline's story and the story of Nephalim history in the wake of Noah and the flood. Both of these stories are extremely satisfying info dumps, given the foundations laid down in the first book. Equally as impressive is the way the history of some of the lost Faberge Eggs feature into the tale.

    When I read Angelology, the question left unanswered for me was, "If God and the angels knew the Nephalim had survived, why did they not do something more to end the threat?" Believe it or not, while this book doesn't come right out and answer that question directly, it does offer a couple of very subtle answers. I won't spoil them, but I did find them worth pondering.

    I don't know if book 3 will be the final installment, but it certainly feels like it will based on how this book ended. Regardless, Danielle Trussoni has ensured that I'll be in it to the end. Her writing style and storytelling are top notch, and I can't wait to see what lies in store for the big battle(s) ahead.

    "A welcome sequel where none was expected"
    Would you listen to Angelopolis again? Why?

    Perhaps. I so enjoyed Angelology, so I suppose if I wanted to binge listen I might.


    What did you like best about this story?

    For me this was a surprise sequel. It is a departure from the first book, it doesn't assume that the reader knows what happened previously.


    Any additional comments?

    I very much enjoy Edoardo Ballerini's narration vs the narrator of Angelology.

    Great story skillfully written and read.
    I hope to see more from this author. It's as though she knows something we don't. I want more.

    "Weak Sequel; Schmuck Hero"

    How is the world going to survive with the impulsive love-sick idiot Verlaine leading the angelologists? The most rash hero since Achilles; he makes psoriasis look healthy. Every other character in the book is interesting; I want to kick him. Is Ms. Trussoni in love with his original like some Pygmalion? It's hard to figure, because he basically drags the book from a strong 3 - 4 star to a 2.

    Very much like this follow up to Angelogoly! Somewhat predictable at times but not so much that it takes away from the story.

    Story
    "Angelopolis"
    What disappointed you about Angelopolis?

    I read the first book and enjoyed it, but I found this sequel, long awaited - but slow going and ponderous. The performer tried to do it justice, but I have found it very difficult to maintain my interest and probably will not finish it.


    What will your next listen be?

    Into the Dim by Janet P Taylor


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator has tried very hard to lift the book and to maintain the reader's interest.


    What character would you cut from Angelopolis?

    To do this justice - perhaps I will struggle on and adjust this at a later date.


    Any additional comments?

    Very ponderous and slow moving
