Angelology takes place in a world where angels walk among us. Their wings are tied flat beneath their clothing so you have no way of knowing who they are, but these angels have been breeding with humans to create dangerous hybrids called Nephilims. Unlike the immortal angels these nephilims are dying and so are trying to do everything within their power to get hold of the angelogogist's research in the hope it will reveal a cure for their disease.

Angelology is a fast paced thriller, which I'd describe as a well written hybrid of The Da Vinci Code, The Historianand Twilight (Twilight Saga) - so if you enjoyed these three books then you are bound to love this one.

I loved the atmospheric descriptions:

"The angelologists examined the body. It was intact, without decay, the skin as smooth and as white as parchment. The lifeless aquamarine eyes gazed heavenward. Pale curls fell against a high forehead and sculptural shoulders, forming a halo of golden hair. Even the robes-the cloth woven of a white shimmering metallic material that none of them could identify exactly-remained pristine, as if the creature had died in a hospital room in Paris and not a cavern deep below the earth."

This initial scene setting was quite slow, but the pace soon sped up. I enjoyed the beginning, but about 100 pages in I began to lose interest. The plot was convoluted, meandering and never reached any real conclusion.

This was a title that I was sent due to reading a number of titles with similar themes previously. Yet unlike a lot of the current Urban Fantasy titles out there this one is more Dan Brown than any other UF author.

It follows certain conventions popular within the genre with an underlying love story but with numerous fresh innovative touches that keep this title not only novel but fresh. Its cracking, its new but above all it's a title that will more than likely win Danielle a large number of fans as this mysterious offering seeks to make its mark.

The plot grabs you on the very first page and twists and turns to the very end. 2010 is the year of the Angels apparently as 2009 was the year of the Vampires with Twilight leading the way. I found the mythology of Angels that Danielle Trussoni weaves throughout the story completely fascinating and entirely believable. The author's theological research carries the book and I found myself wanting to know more and more.
The characters in the book are quite complex as they each have many secrets to hide. I loved the descriptions of the Nephilim who are both beautiful and utterly terrifying at the same time.
Angelology is a fast paced thriller that keeps you guessing to the very last page. Foreign rights have already been bought in 31 major territories and Sony are already in discussion about a feature film. I think that Angelology will be the book that many people are talking about in 2010 and I think that it more than deserves it.

I had no idea what to expect when I began this. I'd never heard of Angelology and worried it was going to be another urban fantasy filled with clichéd handsome heroic angels, or worse, like the numerous teen novels out right now about angels. Thankfully it was like neither. Yes it's paranormal, but it's more... contemporary para. Felt a little like Dan Brown, someone else said The Historian (but I've not read that yet so don't know). It has a historical feel to it while being mainly set in the present. It felt like a realistic telling of angels, one that had me hooked.

The story begins in the present (give or take a few years) with our main female lead, Evangeline. I have to confess, the beginning did not grab me. I worried it would continue in this dull manner but thankfully soon picked up when we are introduced to the human researcher Verlaine, and then the ancient nephilim Percival Grigori. As the story starts to unfold it gets more and more exciting. As Evangeline gets sucked further and further into the mystery she learns that there is more to her life - and the people around her - than she ever knew. She learns of the secret study of Angelology.
We then get taken back to WW2 and follow another character as we see how the events of her lifetime lead to the present day happenings. By the time we return to the present the adventure is heating up and becoming more thrilling by the page. I could not put it down near the end.

If angels are the new vampires, this novel is a strong leader. It is clear Trussoni did her research as it is such an involved and complex story, thoroughly worth the read. I would definitely recommend it. I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it as it might not have been one I chose for myself. I learned a lot reading this and enjoyed myself immensely.

Format: Paperback
I thought I would really enjoy this book. I thought Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons were a lot of fun, and I loved The Historian. I also enjoy books and films about angels. I think this was the only reason I made myself plough through this to the end.
Seriously, this book is really not good. To be fair to the author, she is pretty good at descriptive prose, and some of the descriptive passages are lovely. Also, the idea of the Nephilim being a sort of shadowy elite manipulating the human race for their own gain is cool. Or at least, it could be cool, possibly if someone else had come up with the idea.

There is a tiny little plot which rarely makes a lot of sense. The characters are nicely described but we are given very little insight into their thoughts or motivations. The most important information we are given about the Verlaine character is that he wears odd clothes and smokes cigarettes. Oh and he likes art. And coffee. He falls in love with Evangeline (the main character) about a nanosecond after meeting her, for no more obvious reason than she's pretty hot for a nun. And is repelled by her just as quickly after the plot-twist-that-was-obvious-about-halfway-through-the-book. If there is supposed to be some sort of deeper spiritual connection causing this extreme emotional upheaval, we're never given any idea about what it is.

And a magic french resistance nun? Dude. Tall, beautiful, angelic hybrids with superhuman strength, huge amounts of money and the ability to command legions of warrior/monsters who like cocktail parties, whine about their wings and screw up everything they try and do? Dude.
