Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
I just finished this book this evening. Excellent read. The best thing I've read in a while. Loved it, highly recommend it. It is a mystery, a spiraling, tightening and intriguing storyline about the offspring between angels and humans (Nephilim), and their enemies, Angelologists. There is a surprise ending, a great twist, which comes upon you with breakneck speed. I couldn't click the "next page" button my kindle fast enough towards the end! I didn't start dinner until like 6:30pm, which is late for me, because I couldn't tear myself away! It starts a little slow but stick with it! It gets better very quickly. There are multiple storylines here but I found them all interesting and I changed gears quite agreeably. There are no loose ends, the characters were all intelligent, every solution and option was considered during the course of the story, giving it a very well thought out feel. The details are amazing in this! I don't know if there was ever a First Angelological Expedition, but she had the field notes from one of the men in there with footnotes and all, giving it a very realistic feel! The whole thing felt well researched and suspension of disbelief was easy. Ending was a bit of a cliffhanger, so I'm hoping there is another. I will google this and see what's what! ;) I feel like I read that this was the beginning of a planned trilogy, but I'm not sure! On to other books!!
