Angelology by Danielle Trussoni

In Angelology, Sister Evangeline is a nun at a Hudson Valley convent who discovers a letter from 1943 between the convent's mother superior and philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller. This plunges her deep into a conflict that has raged for millennia between the Society of Angelologists and the Nephilim - the descendants of angels that have mated with humans. The Nephilim are eager to claim all power over humankind, but they need the secrets that Evangeline has discovered. Evangeline realizes she's been prepared for this role for her whole life, and her struggle to stop the Nephilim requires her to piece together ancient clues and knowledge if she's to succeed. Danielle Trussoni's debut novel has received positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "Sensual and intellectual, Angelology is a terrifically clever thriller - more Eco than Brown, without the cloudy sentimentalism of New Age encomiums or Catholic treatises. It makes no apologies for its devices, and none are necessary. How else would it be possible to bring together the angels of the Bible and Apocrypha, the myth of Orpheus, Bulgarian geography, medieval monastics, the Rockefellers, Nazis, nuns and musicology? And how splendid that it has happened."
