Angelopolis by Danielle Trussoni – book review
Overall, I was left both confused and disoriented by poor transitions, rushed scenes, brushed over revelations and a load of historical info-dumping that, while interesting, rarely did anything to move the story forwards.

Book Two takes us to Siberia, in Russia, to a secret installation where many different types of angels are in residence, willingly or no.

Inconsistent, uninteresting, badly developed and two-dimensional. He has to decide whether to kill her or not. As the story progresses we learn how the history of the Nephilim became interwoven with the myth of Orpheus, among other myths; all of these stories are trussonk in the book to have had a basis in fact.

This story is no fairy tale in body or ending, nor is the plot boring or obvious in the page turning. Not my type of thing, but your comparison to Dan Brown makes it tempting.
The storyline is convoluted, choppy, new characters are introduced, then dropped like hot potato, they advance the plot somehow, and we never danoelle of them again; the writing is really clumsy, virtually everyone in the book speaks in exactly same, wooden, “let me give you a truesoni style.

Review of “Angelology” and “Angelopolis” by Danielle Trussoni | Rhapsody in Books Weblog
While a supernatural and metaphysical thriller filled with evocative and decadent details of its environment; still, Angelopolis maintains for the reader that most important and unifying link between reader and read: Evangeline is heard from in one SMALL chapter and not heard from for aaagggeess after, Verlaine basically goes to Russia has the chats with all these new characters and we have NO idea what is happening to Evangeline.
I also enjoyed the twist with the Tzarina, and Rasputin. To view it, daniellw here. Since I read this due to a project at school, I simply HAD to pay a lot of attention to every damn thing in it, and it made it a lot worse.
