Trussoni's Angelology unfurled a brilliant tapestry of myth and biblical lore in the modern world as two star-crossed heroes were plunged into an ancient battle against mankind's greatest enemy: the fatally attractive angel-human hybrids known as the Nephilim. With ANGELOPOLIS, the conflict deepens into an inferno of danger and passion unbound. A decade has passed since Verlaine saw Evangeline alight from the Brooklyn Bridge; the sight of her new wings was a betrayal that still haunts him. Now an elite angel hunter for the Society of Angelology, he pursues his mission with single-minded devotion: to capture, imprison and eliminate her kind. But when Evangeline suddenly appears on a twilit Paris street, Verlaine realises she is nothing like any of the other creatures he so mercilessly pursues. He is sent into a spiral of doubt and confusion that only grows when she is abducted before his eyes by the society's most wanted. Verlaine and his fellow angelologists chase the pair from Paris to the palaces of St. Petersburg and deep into the provinces of Siberia and the Black Sea coast, where the truth of Evangeline's origins, as well as forces that could destroy them, lie in wait. Conceived against an astonishing fresh tableau of history and science, ANGELOPOLIS encompasses Russia's imperial past, modern genetics and ancient depictions of the Annunciation of Gabriel, in a high-octane tale of abduction, treasure seeking and divine warfare as the fate of humanity once again hangs in the balance.
