URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Angelology - Danielle Trussoni


The Nephilim were on the earth in those days Genesis 6:4. When Sister Evangeline finds mysterious correspondence between Mother Innocenta of the Saint Rose Convent and legendary philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller, it confirms Angels walked among us - and their descendants, the cruel Nephilim, still do. Indeed, the Nephilim are hunting for artefacts concealed by Abigail Rockefeller during the Second World War - objects that will ultimately allow them to enslave mankind - and have so far been prevented from reaching their apocalyptic goal by one, clandestine organisation: The Angelology Society. And if the Angelologists are to stand any chance of winning this new battle in the ages-old war, they must find the artefacts first. But their fate rests in the hands of innocent Sister Evangeline, who holds the key to unlocking Abigail Rockefeller's hiding places ...and whose own destiny may yet find her prey to the terrifying Nephilim army, with horrifying consequences for humanity.


This was a title that I was sent due to reading a number of titles with similar themes previously. Yet unlike a lot of the current Urban Fantasy titles out there this one is more Dan Brown than any other UF author.

It follows certain conventions popular within the genre with an underlying love story but with numerous fresh innovative touches that keep this title not only novel but fresh. Its cracking, its new but above all it’s a title that will more than likely win Danielle a large number of fans as this mysterious offering seeks to make its mark.

I saw this in the book store the other day and debated on whether to get it. I just might have to give it a try.
