Angelopolis

Angelopolis

by Danielle Trussoni

Jodi Roberts (05/12/13): Disappointing is how I would describe this book. I rather enjoyed the first book in this series (Angelology) and was looking forward to the next installment. However, I would have to say the story fell flat and was rather pointless. Maybe one of those middle books that was simply a device to move the story to the next book? The two main characters introduced in the first book suffered flaws in the second book I found hard to overlook. Just how did Verlaine go from being a love struck art historian to one of the greatest Angel hunters ever? And why was there so little to be seen of Evangeline? There is little development and insight as to who she now is and how she came to be in the intervening years, but that could be said of Verlaine, as well. So many unanswered questions. I felt too much time was spent on descriptions of different type of angels for no real purpose. The author would have done better to include a diagram or family tree in the opening pages; this could have been a reference, if needed. I also believed there was too much time spent on describing the plant journal. Additionally, without trying to give anything away, how about an explanation as to why Verlaine would do a 180 turn on Evangeline? A disappointing follow-up to Angelology, a story I thought had such promise.
