For those readers who shy away from historical fiction for fear of reading a fictitious text book… Fear Not! The evocative and descriptive quality of Trussoni’s prose is mesmerizing and gains momentum especially in the most action-driven second half of the book. I read daniellf first book in this series – Angelology – 3 years ago. There was little reminiscent here of the lush prose and interesting characters of the first book.
There was absolutley no character development, much of the descriptions read like excerpts from an encyclopedia and some parts just did not make sense at all. It seemed like a cross between really good urban fantasy and excellent religious fiction with a twist angelopilis the biblical scholarly type book thrown in.
I hope the third will be better. When young nun Evangeline and art historian Verlaine were brought together Angelology 1 by their common interest in angel iconography, little they knew they would become the most important players of a century-old conflict.

It’s much more engaging and makes you turn the page. Although I have a general idea about the research that will go into a book when I begin it, I tend to do the bulk of my research as I write each scene.
I’m just not one of them, and I am quite certain neither bu any of my friends. At least, these are my favorite kinds of novels.

I also agree with the problem referred to in the review by Beth Fish Readswhich is that the very end of the Second Book, like the end of the first, was just not consistent with everything else we had been led to believe.
It begins well, with our hero from book 1, Verlaine, and his meeting with Evangeline. We simply have to take it on the word of the Angelologists that the angels are evil. Ten years have passed since Verlaine watched his lover, Evangeline, take flight from the Brooklyn Bridge as her true self, an ancient species born of human and angel parents.

We meet members of Evangeline’s family, and find friends and enemies that she was unaware of.
