“After reading the first book in the series I was disappointing with the abrupt ending. This time I knew to expect it, so it made the story less enjoyable. I found some parts to be fascinating and others to be perplexing (Valko in the cave?). It had been such a long time since I read the first book that I probably should have looked up the plot as it took me awhile to understand who was who and what was going on. I also found it interesting that the author chose to have the book take place 10 years after the first. I don't know that it was necessary. Ultimately, it is not my favorite series, but I am intrigued by the caste of angels and the families and I'll continue reading. I only hope that the third book pulls things together in a neat, yet intriguing, way.”Becca Fronczak wrote this review Wednesday, July 10, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“It is not that this book is bad, I guess it has so much action and so little character development that I just can not get into the story. I made it just over half way through and I am choosing to not finish it.”Stacy M wrote this review Wednesday, May 29, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Sister Evangeline was just a girl when her father entrusted her to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in upstate New York. Now twenty-three‚ her discovery of a 1943 letter from 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.
From The very beginning the story to the very end you will be held to the end of your seat, a real page turner once I started I could not put it down. This book is going to be big, and it’s going to be popular, and it absolutely deserves to be both of these things. You should buy it, and read it, and let it scare you stupid.
The plot and pacing have a distinctly cinematic feel. Author Danielle Trussoni’s smart and polished prose, creates a very visual and emotional narrative. True development of characters and environment.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Hat’s off to Danielle Trussoni!
Verlaine is a hunter. He was duped by Evangeline but never again. Fool me one, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
A body appears bearing the idenitity of Evangeline. So you can imagine Verlaine's suprise when Evangeline appears back in his life. She asks for his help. She presents him with an decorative egg. Before thwy can figure out what the egg is about, Evangeline is kidnapped.
I can remember reading Danielle's first book, Angelology and liking it. Liking the book enjoy that I wanted to read the second one. I jumped right in on Angelopolis and before I knew it I was flying through the book. It is such a quick read. This book was way better then I imagined it would be. In love with Verlaine. He is one hot human. This is one of the things that I enjoy about this series is that the male lead is the human and the female is the bad angel. Even though Verlaine and Evangeline spent most of the book apart, I know that they are destine to be together. Even if it is to Verlaine's demise. Evangeline has cast a spell over Verlaine mroe then he wants to admit.
I learned more about Evangeline and her kind in this book. I can not wait to read the next book and see the show down between Evangeline and Verlaine. Which I am looking forward to. Both Evangeline and Verlaine are growing stronger. Another thing that I found cool was that this boko was split into small sections and each section was titled different themes most involving the seven sins. AS much as I did have an enjoyable time reading thsi book and learning more about Evangeline. I do hope the next book had more action and maybe a fight or two. ”
