"A attractive follow-up to the best-seller Angelology. . . half historic novel, delusion, love tale, mystery, and secret. . . it is a must-read."
—Booklist (starred review)
A New York Times bestseller and worldwide sensation, Angelology unfurled an excellent tapestry of fable and biblical lore on our present-day global and plunged star-crossed heroes into an historic conflict opposed to mankind’s maximum enemy: the fatally beautiful angel-human hybrids often called the Nephilim. With Angelopolis, the clash deepens into an inferno of hazard and fervour unbound.
A decade has handed considering the fact that Verlaine observed Evangeline alight from the Brooklyn Bridge, the sight of her new wings a betrayal that haunts him nonetheless. Now an elite angel hunter for the Society of Angelology, he pursues his undertaking with single-minded devotion: to catch, imprison, and dispose of her kind.
But while Evangeline all of sudden seems on a twilit Paris road, Verlaine unearths her nature to be in contrast to any of the opposite creatures he so mercilessly pursues, casting him right into a spiral of doubt and confusion that in simple terms grows while she is kidnapped prior to his eyes via a creature who has crowned the society’s most-wanted record for greater than a century. the resultant chase drives Verlaine and his fellow angelologists from the shadows of the Eiffel Tower to the palaces of St. Petersburg and deep into the provinces of Siberia and the Black beach, the place the reality of Evangeline’s origins—as good as forces that may repair or annihilate them all—lie in wait.
Conceived opposed to an brilliant clean tableau of historical past and technology, Angelopolis plumbs Russia’s imperial prior, smooth genetics, and historic depictions of that the majority effective angelic appearance—the Annunciation of Gabriel—in a high-octane story of abduction, treasure looking, and divine war because the destiny of humanity once more hangs within the stability.

I killed one and the other escaped. After this I knew that I needed to tell her the truth. I explained everything to her—our fathers’ work, the Nephilim, even my own situation—and, to my surprise, she knew more about Vladimir’s work than I had initially believed. Eventually Xenia agreed to close the shop and disappear. I took the egg. It’s why I came here. ” Evangeline shook her head, her expression serious. “That was just some random Nephil who looked a bit like me. ” Verlaine considered this, realizing how far Evangeline had gone in her efforts to survive.
As Verlaine studied their movements, he saw that Evangeline was far more adept than he had initially thought. Eno dove and struck, harrying Evangeline, darting at her, circling her, teasing her. Evangeline responded, slamming into Eno full force. Eno fell back, tumbling through the air. Recovering herself, she held her knees to her body, pushed herself forward, and turning in a somersault, spun once, twice, three times, gaining momentum with each rotation until she was a ball of fire. She launched herself at Evangeline, striking her with a force that threw her to the roof in a clatter of slate tiles.
