When Sister Evangeline of the St Rose Convent stumbles across a mysterious correspondence with Abigail Rockefeller in the archive, it reveals that angels once walked among us ...and might still.
This discovery plunges Evangeline into the hidden and dangerous world of the Angelologists - a secret society that battles to prevent the ascendancy of the Nephilim, the angels' descendants on Earth. Evangeline becomes the catalyst in a race to hunt down powerful and ancient artefacts that can be used to enslave humankind. And not only is the key to finding those artefacts within her grasp - but also a secret about her own past and its links to the Angelologists. Possession of either could cost Evangeline her life ...

Review by wyvernfriend
It has some of the elements of the Da Vinci Code and some of the elements of Storm Constantine's Stalking Tender Prey. Yes the Grigori and nephilim have been done before!Angelology has a good-looking young nun. Evangeline, who is in The St Rose Convent where she has spent most of her life. When a scholar asks for help she finds something that disturbs her view of what her life was, who her parents were and starts her on a quest that will change utterly what she believes.Fallen angels slept with the daughters of man and had children, these half angels regard humanity as interesting assistants but nothing really more. However their human part is asserting itself and they are dying out, only an artifact taken by the Angelologists can save them.I disliked the end, it was so long an involved until the end and then seemed to suddenly end. I also don't like the response to what happens to Evangeline.
