Angelopolis: A Novel by Danielle Trussoni

A Novel
by Danielle Trussoni

Trade Paperback, 320 pages

Already picked up for the movies, Danielle Trussoni's best-selling world of angels and hunters rivals Dan Brown in complexity, history, science, geography, and biblical and mythological lore. 

Angelopolis is the second in her Angelology series and builds upon the fantastic world she has created and the creatures who live in it. Inspired by a passage in Genesis, she explores the myth of the angels who fell in love with the humans and bred a race of angel/human hybrids which the flood was to wash away. In the Angelology series, some survived and these hybrids are a dangerous and terrible set of castes who are a real threat to humankind. 

An intelligent and thrilling fantasy series that is a nice departure from vampires and werewolves and zombies and all the other threatening non-humans that we have become so familiar with in recent works. 

USA Today calls it The Da Vinci Code meets Raiders of the Lost Arc - but I would throw The Matrix and the works of Justin Cronin in the mix too.

Hunt or be hunted, prepare to join the realm of the angels! 

Book One in the Series.
