Description

Set in the secluded world of cloistered abbeys, long-lost secrets and angelic humans, Angelology has all the makings of a blockbuster hit, combining elements of The Da Vinci Code and Kate Mosse's Labyrinth Sister Evangeline was just a young girl when her father left her at St. Rose Convent under the care of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Now a young woman, she has unexpectedly discovered a collection of letters dating back sixty years - letters that bring her deep into a closely guarded secret, to an ancient conflict between the millennium-old Society of Angelologists and the monstrously beautiful Nephilim, the descendants of angels and humans. Rich and mesmerizing, Angelology blends biblical lore, mythology and the fall of the Rebel Angels, creating a luminous, riveting tale of one young woman caught in a battle that will determine the fate of the world.

Professional reviews

"Danielle Trussoni's debut novel introduces listeners to Sister Evangeline, a young nun whose discovery in her convent's library pulls her into an ancient conflict between angelologists and the Nephilim, an evil society of human-angel offspring. She and art historian Verlaine, an Abigail Rockefeller enthusiast under a questionable commission, embark on a globe-trotting treasure hunt that leads to a showdown of biblical proportions. Susan Denaker's narration perfectly suits the sprawling time line and epic scope of the story, which reveals the mythological backdrop of the angels, the origins of Sister Evangeline, and the thrilling plot in equal measure. In particular, Denaker handles the accents and personalities of the Nephilim society with ease and color, bringing out their diabolical natures. F.G. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
