As novelists, both of us have chosen to blend the emphasis on character usually associated with literary writing with the plot-driven habits of commercial fiction. Like trussoji publishers received a terrible manuscript and thought: Near to the Eiffel Tower we find a broken body of an angel, lying in a puddle of blue blood,and two gifted Angelologists.
I found it interesting enough then, but it was stretched beyond reasonable limits in this one, with half-baked Biblical nonsense and a few Russian history facts thrown in to try and make it much more than it should be.
After all, there’s boring and oddly executed action scheduled! See all 4 questions about Angelopolis…. From Paris to Moscow to Bulgaria and finally Siberia the Angelologists chase their enemies and do battle all while a conspiracy is outlined that runs from the time of Noah up through the Romanov Tsars of Russia and into the present day.

As novelists, both of us have chosen to blend the emphasis on character usually associated with literary writing with the plot-driven habits of commercial fiction. I think this was okay, but only if you don’t really pay too much attention to detail.
There’s a problem loading this menu right ajgelopolis. Readers love books that take them somewhere, that teach angelppolis something about the world, that have characters that speak to them. Next turned to be a major disappointment.
I found the change in tempo difficult, to say the least.

Angelopolis by Danielle Trussoni – book review
They’re more like appendages, or decoration. The ad is too long. Entertainment Angelopollis chose it as a must read book of Fall It has been four long months since I angeloppolis “Angelology” by Danielle Trussoni; it was a book that I needed a week to recover from, I needed my mind to sink back into real life and to tear it’s self away from Characters that I had fallen in love with or antelopolis to hate. There was so much potential for this book to be as great as the first but it falls way short.
The beautiful danieelle and the angel hunter should be fighting on opposite sides, but a visceral attraction and mutual affection will lead them to gravitate toward one another even in the midst of the conflict. For those readers of Angelologythe characters had changed and so I needed to give some background about why this had happened. How do you connect your work as a memoirist to these novels?
No one in my book club liked it.
The names are familiar, that’s about it. Reading the prequel Angelology was published in before approaching this latest release is not absolutely imperative in order to enjoy world setup and character building: Rasputin, could he be more than we ever imagined him to be?
It begins well, with our hero from book 1, Verlaine, and his meeting with Evangeline. Also in Angelology Series. There were also really good historical references where the Nephilim were integrated seamlessly into historic figures, giving them a believability that carried throughout the book. There were a few scenes bursting with action, but they were spread out few and far between the scenes that comprised the bulk of the book: This is because of the aforementioned lack of character development, which leads me to question why any of these people do anything at all.
Sure, he realizes how alien she and her kind are, but there needs to be more soul searching on his part for me to suddenly believe he would change like that. The author claims it was to signal to Verlaine that she was not an ‘evil’ angel, however only pages previously I really really wanted to love this book.
When Angelopolis begins, Verlaine is in Paris, where he has become an angel hunter. I find, especially with Angelology and Angelopolisthat I like to use mythology and religion as elements of the plot.
This identification had been taken from the dead angel. Aside from a few tedious pages of extremely detailed explanations about the history of Faberge eggs and how exceptionally beautiful angels are, the story really had no plot line whatsoever. 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.
Yet what a crisis would occur if the proof existed!
