"A attractive follow-up to the best-seller Angelology. . . half old novel, fable, love tale, mystery, and secret. . . it is a must-read."
—Booklist (starred review)
A New York Times bestseller and international sensation, Angelology unfurled a super tapestry of fable and biblical lore on our present-day international and plunged star-crossed heroes into an historic conflict opposed to mankind’s maximum enemy: the fatally beautiful angel-human hybrids referred to as the Nephilim. With Angelopolis, the clash deepens into an inferno of possibility and fervour unbound.
A decade has handed on account 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 project with single-minded devotion: to catch, imprison, and dispose of her kind.
But whilst Evangeline unexpectedly seems to be 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 ahead of his eyes by way of a creature who has crowned the society’s most-wanted record for greater than a century. the consequent 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 which may repair or annihilate them all—lie in wait.
Conceived opposed to an wonderful clean tableau of historical past and technology, Angelopolis plumbs Russia’s imperial earlier, smooth genetics, and historic depictions of that the majority powerful angelic appearance—the Annunciation of Gabriel—in a high-octane story of abduction, treasure looking, and divine battle because the destiny of humanity once more hangs within the stability.

She slipped away, her attention drawn to something behind him. Verlaine caught a sweep of movement in the corner of his eye. Suddenly a car pulled into the passage, its headlights breaking through the darkness. The door opened and an Emim angel leaped from the car. Before he could move, Evangeline ran through the passage and, with a speed and grace that he recognized as belonging to the most adept creatures, she lifted into the air, landing on the rooftop above.
