I like the over all concept of the world Trussoni created – it’s not your typical take on this type of story. People who really loved Angelology I guess. There’s no sense of threat – no greater battle driving the characters forwards.
Angelopolis by Danielle Trussoni – book review
Once again, it seemed more like a bomb dropping out of nowhere to keep us eager for the next book, rather than like something we might expect from the action angeloppolis it. Mar 18, William Jackson rated it it was amazing.
Personal tools Log in. There is one particular angel that exudes an almost toxic sexuality and is irresistibly attractive, but women are trussohi of being affected by her. Though I never felt lost in the sequel, it left me rather unsatisfied. However, I will say that the story seemed rushed. I watched a mini-series about the Nephilim about 2 years ago, and have been fascinated with them since then.
As the story progresses we learn how the history of the Nephilim became interwoven with the myth of Orpheus, among other myths; all of these stories are purported in the book to have had a basis in fact.
Aug 31, Maya rated it did not like it. Sure enough, if you perform the proper incantations exactly correctly but not otherwise the Top Archangel himself shows up to help. On the one hand I really loved the concept of the world, and had a fondness for the main characters Evangeline and Verlaine, but a rubbish ending when there was no promise of a sequel to follow made me feel it was just overall poorly executed.
Inconsistent, uninteresting, badly developed and two-dimensional. He’s still in love with her, and has to decide whether to kill her or not. So many, and all standing in the open.
The minute I reached the last page, I was impatient for the next book. I believe in total we hear from her for about 30 pages of a total pages.
I hope the third will be better. I hope that goes well. Then I read this and redefined my idea of what poorly executed means.
Angelopolis still maintains the core beauty of Angelology. There is still a war between humans and angels – fallen angels and Nephilim, the cross between humans and fallen angels. These are books that I want to read. Her days have been fairly routine until now, but on the day the book opens, December 23,she receives a letter from a V. Retrieved from ” https: It looks like these angels will be larger than life soon enough. Trussoni has clearly done her research on ancient traditions and histories and her interweaving of her own angelic mythology into our real history is clever and satisfying.
While looking down on the body before him, he realizes that he is surrounded not only by humans but many of the various types of angels. After all, there’s boring and oddly executed action scheduled! We last saw her spreading her wings and leaping This second book re-tells the story of the tortured Romanov family, with twists we have never imagined. It was short and made to be more, I don’t know, commercial.
Seven publishing houses vied for the publishing rights, resulting in a bidding war. I think I remember liking the first book better.
Trussoni currently lives in New York City.
Feb 04, Pamela Morris rated it did not like it. Trussoni has a gift for leaving us with a good trussoji. Nevertheless, when you opt for the Vengeful God and Evil Angels version of the Bible, it seems to me that you need to have your characters also account for divergence from metaphysical doctrines such as omnipotence clearly not a Divine attribute in this seriesforgiveness, redemption, and maybe the whole Sermon on the Mount.
These are moments to be taken advantage of in character development, but instead, Trussoni simply moves forward.
I would still recommend this book if you read the first, it’s worth it, I just wish it had remained as unique and mysterious as the first. And will it lead her back to Verlaine? In DaniellwI read Angelology in virtually one sitting. It has been three trussonj since we last saw our heroine, but in just these few short pages it was magical to see the difference and of how much she appeared to have grown – and of course, I was left feeling desperate to know more Things happen without rhyme angelkpolis reason; there is no suspense or even a connecting thread.
Unimaginable wealth and power beyond belief are within their reach: Plus I was left feeling odd about how it left off.
The Mara, the Gusian, Rahab, Anakin, and more. It’s much more engaging and makes you turn the page. A mess of a book that doesn’t do justice to the richly imaginative world that Trussoni created in her first novel.
Materialism and science have banished them to nonexistence, yrussoni sphere as indeterminate as purgatory.
