(46) Angelology by Danielle Trussoni


What have I been telling you guys? Angels are the new vampires. Angelology by Danielle Trussoni just proves my point. Her debut novel, Angelology is a fast paced thriller that takes you from a convent in upstate New York to war torn Europe. All to wage a war as old as time. Good versus evil. I am even willing to overlook an editing discrepancy regarding the age of Verlaine's car to tell you that it is one of the best books I have read this year!

Twenty-Three year old Sister Evangeline comes from a long line of Angelologists. For several generations her family has been tracking Angels and trying to free the world from their evil, destructive tendencies. The Sisters of Perpetual Adoration are not just protecting Evangeline, they are protecting a secret that will change the course of the war being waged between the humans and the Angels that walk the earth.

Put aside everything you think you know about Angels. Angelology is an absolutely wonderful, fast paced novel that is a mixture of factual history with a whole lot of fictional lore. Written in a way that will have you grabbing your Bible to do a little fact-checking of your own. I would say the concept is similar to The Historian, but with the action packed plot of a Dan Brown novel. I enjoyed Angelology so much that I am going to give it a "Best of" tag.

Can't wait to read this on my ereader! I said the same thing about angels being the next "Twilight" after I read the advanced readers copy of "Hush Hush".

I'm reading it right now, and thought I'd come see what you had to say about it. Glad to hear it is on your "Best of 2010" list! I'm enjoying it so far.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
