This is the second in the Angelology series. Before you freak out, you really didn’t have to read the first book to enjoy this. There are characters in common, and of course it is the continuation of the story, but this is truly awesome on its own.
Trussoni blends history into fiction, reminding me of one of my favorite books, The Historian, or even the Dan Brown books. I was sucked in immediately, and rapt by her attention to detail and the magnificent characters and things around them. This book takes the angel experience to a deeper level, to those who want to destroy the angels and study them, to those same people producing a child who is an angel, and grows up not wanting to be. It involves history, the Faberge eggs – which is a fascinating take on fact and fiction. I choose to believe it as Trussoni wrote it now. Much more fun!! This book is also half off at BAM right now – not sure why, but I snagged it right up! Very worthy purchase!
