This was the second in the Angelology Series and it was an awesome read. The reader is introduced to a far different world of angels. The author takes a very unique spin, that is for sure.
We met Verlaine and Evangeline in the first book at the beginning of a very complex story that had just begun. 10 years have passed and the world has changed dramatically for both of them. Verlaine has become an Angelologist and his primary job is to capture the Nephilim, who are half angel and half human. Let's just say they don't have earth's best interests in mind. Their main goal is to attain power by any means necessary.
This leads us to the ultimate struggle for survival for either humans or Nephilim. Who will survive and who will be destroyed? There's only one way to find out, sit back and enjoy this wild ride beginning with "Angelology" and continuing with "Angelopolis."
A New York Times bestseller and global sensation, Angelology unfurled a brilliant tapestry of myth and biblical lore on our present-day world and plunged two star-crossed heroes into an ancient battle against mankind’s greatest enemy: the fatally attractive angel-human hybrids known as the Nephilim. With Angelopolis, the conflict deepens into an inferno of danger and passion unbound.
A decade has passed since Verlaine saw Evangeline alight from the Brooklyn Bridge, the sight of her new wings a betrayal that haunts him still. Now an elite angel hunter for the Society of Angelology, he pursues his mission with single-minded devotion: to capture, imprison, and eliminate her kind.
But when Evangeline suddenly appears on a twilit Paris street, Verlaine finds her nature to be unlike any of the other creatures he so mercilessly pursues, casting him into a spiral of doubt and confusion that only grows when she is abducted before his eyes by a creature who has topped the society’s most-wanted list for more than a century. The ensuing chase drives Verlaine and his fellow angelologists from the shadows of the Eiffel Tower to the palaces of St. Petersburg and deep into the provinces of Siberia and the Black Sea coast, where the truth of Evangeline’s origins?as well as forces that could restore or annihilate them all?lie in wait.
Conceived against an astonishing fresh tableau of history and science, Angelopolis plumbs Russia’s imperial past, modern genetics, and ancient depictions of that most potent angelic appearance?the Annunciation of Gabriel?in a high-octane tale of abduction, treasure seeking, and divine warfare as the fate of humanity once again hangs in the balance.
