MY Review on Angelology- Danielle Trussoni

Angels are often described as beautiful creatures descended upon the earth on Lord's command ,having  beautiful feathers and  a loving face that can only be described by adjectives such as beautiful , unearthly , loving etc and never by those such as  hot , sexy or sensuous . They have captured our imagination and endless stories , novels and films have been  woven with  this imagination into something at once real and unreal . They are like the parallels of vampires , werewolves etc yet their presence seems more possible than that of those beasts . Despite the fact that beasts have been showcased as more real by means of highly descriptive fiction based on some "fantasy" historical evidence , religious texts , paintings , "Superstitious" beliefs etc. It is I believe our psyche that chooses the side of the angels . Henceforth the book on Angelo-logy by Danielle Trussoni is a first in ways more than one , atleast for me . I am sure the Bible's reference to the arch-angels , nephrilim and watchers has been used many a times in  the past ,furthermore if  i were to come across a novel with a story more beautifully woven about these very angels , I will not be surprised . Why then, do i recommend this book ? What is good about it ?.Danielle has been very successful as an author in making "Neprilim " ( Descendants of a disobedient group of angels called Watchers ) , and " Watchers"  as real possible identities , using the reference of "The Book Of Enoch" and "The Bible" she has given them an identity that can be called believable to say the least ( for a theist at-least ) . The story of the book , I would prefer not to divulge since it would spoil the fun , its sufficient to say that it is a fight between Angelologist ( a society whose objective is to end the influence of Nephrilim on the human world by destroying them ) and "Nephrilim for the Lyre of the Arch-angel Gabriel which is also famous as the lyre of Orpheus . The Lyre can destroy the Nephrilim if the correct musical composition is played . Furthermore the Nephrilim's have lost their many powers due to the recesssive angelic traits (genes) and more potent human traits ( genes ) , hence if that continues they would be destroyed on their own , the lyre however has also the power to rejuvenate . The most thrilling of all suspense's is the fate of the protagonist's which is far from cliche'  
*Angelology's meaning - It is the study of Angels it comes' from the Greek word "Angelologia" which is a combination of two words together "Angelos" = angel (messenger) and "logos" = word, meaning the word of Angels.. It is a branch of theology and deals with the study of symbols , texts , paintings , manuscrpts , religious texts that give any reference to the presence of angels or the literature surrounding them
