One of our Great Reads you may have missed in 2011.
A thriller with a twist, the baddies are the descendants of angels. They have oppressed humanity throughout our history. Based on old Bible passages and strange mythology, it’s a really wonderful idea. Flashing back to 1930’s France for a middle section, it is mostly set in millennial upstate New York as a young nun and an art historian discover that the world holds stranger things than they ever believed. I really hope there’s more to come.
The Lovereading view...
Reading like fast paced action movie the obvious comparison is with the Da Vinci Code although the inclusion of actual angels gives it a slightly supernatural element. Great characters and a twisting plot line make for a great action thriller, full of suspense and mystery.

The Good Housekeeping view...
Angelology is set to go stratospheric – comparisons with Dan Brown abound and the film rights have been sold to Columbia Pictures. Full of edge-of-the-seat adventure, the book sees a young nun and an art historian uncover proof of the existence of angels, which triggers the hunt for a priceless treasure and reignites a battle between good and evil.
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.
