Special Feaure: Publshing goes crazy for angels! (part 2)

The publishing world is going crazy for angels right now, so I decided to do a special feature on the blog highlighting some upcoming releases that are focused on angels.  Yesterday I talked about Angel by L.A Weatherly and Halo by Alexandra Adornetto, both of which I can't wait to read.  Today I'll focus on two more upcoming releases and also talk about Angelology by Danielle Trussoni which is generating a lot of publicity right now.

If you know of any other upcoming releases that are angel related, please share in comments.


Firts up today is Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia.  I've read a couple of  reviews of this one already, and I'm very excited to read it.  I hear this one will have a sequel too.  When will I find the time to read all these books?!



Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia 
Lands Atlantic Publishing LLC 
Paperback, 256 pages 
Release Date: May 18th 2010. 
Age Group: Young Adult - Ages 13+


Product Description:


Seventeen-year-old Teagan McNeel falls for captivating Garreth Adams and soon discovers that her crush has an eight-point star etched into the palm of his right hand-the mark of an angel.


But where there is light, dark follows, and she and Garreth suddenly find themselves vulnerable to a dark angel's malicious plan that could threaten not only her life, but the lives of everyone she knows.


Divinely woven together, Angel Star takes readers on a reflective journey when one angel's sacrifice collides with another angel's vicious ambition in a way that is sure to have readers searching for their own willpower.


Angel's Fury by Bryony Pearce is another one I'm looking  forward to.  The release date is a while off, so there's no cover art for this one yet, but the plot description sounds great!

Angel's Fury by Bryony Pearce
Egmont, 352 pages,
Release date:  January 2011
Age group: Young Adult


Product Description:

Cassie Farrier has always suffered from terrifying nightmares. On a trip to Germany she recognises scenes from her dreams and finds evidence of a sixty year-old massacre. Fearing for her sanity, her family sends Cassie to a retreat where she meets others with symptoms like her own and finds out that she has lived a number of past lives.

However, the Doctor at the retreat is not what she seems. She believes her patients contain the trapped spirits of Nephilim and wishes to free them by twisting the children under her care until they are capable of committing terrible atrocities.

Cassie and the boy she comes to love must escape the Doctor’s influence but can they also escape the misery of their shared past?


There's been a lot of buzz around Angelology by Danielle Trussoni. I really think I should check it out. Has anybody read this yet?  A follow up 'Angelopolis' is already in the works.



Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
Michael Joseph
Hardcover, 464 pages
Release date: April 1st 2010.

Product Description:

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days Genesis 6:4 When Sister Evangeline finds mysterious correspondence between Mother Innocenta of the Saint Rose Convent and legendary philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller, it confirms Angels walked among us – and their descendants, the cruel Nephilim, still do. Indeed, the Nephilim are hunting for artefacts concealed by Abigail Rockefeller during the Second World War - objects that will ultimately allow them to enslave mankind - and have so far been prevented from reaching their apocalyptic goal by one, clandestine organisation: The Angelology Society. And if the Angelologists are to stand any chance of winning this new battle in the ages-old war, they must find the artefacts first. But their fate rests in the hands of innocent Sister Evangeline, who holds the key to unlocking Abigail Rockefeller’s hiding places … and whose own destiny may yet find her prey to the terrifying Nephilim army, with horrifying consequences for humanity.
