Now an elite angel hunter for the Society of Angelology, he pursues his undertaking with single-minded devotion: to trap, imprison, and get rid of her kind.

But whilst Evangeline unexpectedly appears to be like 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 sooner than his eyes by way of a creature who has crowned the society’s most-wanted checklist 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 fix or annihilate them all—lie in wait.

Conceived opposed to an spectacular clean tableau of heritage and technology, Angelopolis plumbs Russia’s imperial previous, glossy genetics, and old depictions of that the majority effective angelic appearance—the Annunciation of Gabriel—in a high-octane story of abduction, treasure looking, and divine war because the destiny of humanity once more hangs within the stability.
