You won't want to know how I ripped open the padded envelope. Holding the book in my hands.. I think I'd forgot to breath. The image on the cover was.... MAGNIFICIENT! I was on cloud nine! Weeeeee~~~
And it opens up to a full Angel image!!!
See the raw, jagged edge (pages)? Nice right!
Erm.. okay, I'm getting a little over excited before I even peek into the book. No, I'm not going to do it. I fear I won't be able to put the book down once I start. Two library books are sitting on my bedside cabinet now... PLUS plenty of course notes to study! No, I can't take this risk.
In the email (THANK YOU SOooo MUCH, Lindsay. You're an Angel!), it was stated that the Angels are the new VAMPIRES in the story! Another vampire saga after TWILIGHT? Angels as vampires? What is the world coming to??? I have a feeling this is going to conjure up another vampire or better, Angels mania. How exciting!
''It’s a thrilling story about a young nun coming to terms with her destiny, set to the backdrop of a covert age-old war between a secret society of scholars and the Nephilim, the evil, monstrously beautiful descendents of angels and humans. This blazing page turner is a highly original story that will transport readers to another world, full of angelic beings and biblical intrigue. Beginning in the tranquil corridors of an abbey in upstate New York, the story travels back in time deep within the mountains of Bulgaria, on to Paris during the Nazi occupation and finally to the epic landmarks of New York City, where the extraordinary climax takes place. The angels in this story are not your garden-variety cherubs, but striking, hypnotic and dangerous creatures. True to their depiction in the Book of Enoch and Paradise Lost, these creatures are immortal and deadly in their radiance. Their capacity for evil gives ANGELOLOGY the same spine-chilling allure that all good vampire novels possess, from Dracula to Twilight. The book has been optioned by Sony for Will Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment.''
