Product Description

Review

"Angeology finds an almost hallucinatory power....fusing the debased, the psychological, and the theological, into a single rich, strange tableau that transmits a shock of truth."
— Time Magazine

"Breathtakingly imaginative.... Once you've entered Angelology's enthralling world...you'll be thinking, 'Vampires? Who cares about vampires?'"
— People Magazine

"Angelology is everything a reader wants . . . a clever, fast-paced thriller with a strong sense of place and beguiling, emotionally engaging characters [and] a skillful, satisfying history. . . . A pleasure from start to finish . . . A wonderful achievement."
Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth

"Angelology by Danielle Trussoni is a thrilling, gorgeous read. Atmospheric, beguiling, and  if you'll pardon the pun-diabolically good."
Raymond Khoury, author of The Last Templar and Sanctuary

"Angelology lets loose the ancient fallen angels to the modern world with devastating results. Trussoni has written a holy thriller that will arrest your attention from the opening pages and not let go till its mysteries take wing."
Keith Donohue, author of The Stolen Child and Angels of Destruction

"Danielle Trussoni creates a gorgeous gothic world for the reader, where the people who surround us are not what they seem, and stories are unveiled as more truth than fable. This is a book that resonates as both haunting and holy. A must read."
Brunonia Barry, author of The Lace Reader

"An elegantly ambitious archival thriller . . . richly allusive and vividly staged, with widescreen-ready visuals, a dewy but adaptable heroine and a dashingly cruel villain. . . . Sensual and intellectual, Angelology is a terrifically clever thriller."
The New York Times Book Review

"A thrill ride best described as The Da Vinci Code meets Raiders of the Lost Ark. . . . Readers will feel the irresistible pull of Angelology. As thrillers go, it's heavenly."

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Heather Pearson TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 31 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book opened a door to a whole new world, a world where angels and their ill-begotten offspring have infiltrated the human population of earth. It seems that the only good angels are those still resident in heaven and that those on earth are tarnished since they betrayed God's trust and cavorted and bred with earthly women. Their hybrid children, know as nephilim, are not good. They seek the downfall of humanity and to set themselves above consideration of all others. There are other non-human beings that inhabit the earth, who at times will co-operate with the nephilim.

Sister Evangeline, of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, has been drawn into this centuries old mischief. Unknown to her, she holds the key to either healing or destroying the angels and their spawn. She was born into a family of angelologists who are seeking to elminate the danger of the angels from the earth.

Author Danielle Trussoni has reached back into history to set up the structure and existance of the angelologists. She cites a number of historical figures and events and attributes them as member or as pivitol points in the angel/earth battle. A very believable approach. The hardest part of this story for me was to understand that the angels aren't good. In my mind, angels represent good.

While I did side with Evangeline throughout the story, I also found that I wanted Percival (a bad nephilim) to be healed (you'll have to read the book to find out what he needs to be healed from), to see if it could really be done. Ms. Trussoni was able to paint a word portrait of Percival that made me want to like him. I came to feel that his extremely good looks must somehow compensate for any foul deeds attributed to him.

Format: Hardcover
The author sets up an interesting world where human and angel are at odds, fighting for control of the world. The school of angelology was fascinating to read about. I enjoyed hearing about the Academy in Paris and the character's studies on angels. The section of the novel that flashes back to pre- and post- WWII was the best part of the novel by far.

However, this book suffered from an extreme lack of editing. This reads more like a first draft than a finished novel. The two main leads are flat, though Celestine and Gabrielle were compelling. Any romance seemed forced and unbelievable. The length of the novel could have been reduced as I found many parts redundant. The ending is quite a twist but without sufficient buildup.

Overall, this is a book that could have been great but wasn't. It feels like an attempt to copy The Da Vinci Code and Twilight at the same time. I'm not sure if the parts I enjoyed outweigh the flaws that ruin the story.

Format: Hardcover
I had seen advertisements for this book in all the newspapers and bus shelter billboards around town, so I bought into the media hype and purchased the book. The initial two chapters were interesting but then I felt the plot was lacking in substance. The characters were extremely boring and had no depth to them. I took me over a week to finish the book and even then I was pushing myself to finish in hopes that the finale of the book would bring some sort of combination for climax and resolution. Unfortunately, the ending was not that great, but it was better than the entire middle section of the book. The build up was horribly stretched and sort of like a run on sentence. As if the first two chapters and the last two chapters were the only decent parts of the book.

This was an ok read with a very poor ending. The Celestine part during 1943 where they go to the caves is extremely good.

Female lead was poor, male lead was decent.

This book was highly touted in newspaper reviews. It was a very interesting hypothesis for the story, and it started out well. However, in many parts it is just plain amateurish. Although it seemed very predictable, the final chapter was quite a surprise. The characters were pretty weak. All in all it was disappointing.
