They disarmed their brothers. Trussoni’s first novel, her first book being a solidly non-fiction memoir. Sally Field was so creepy to me as a kid with that outfit on too, like, she could never get in a sportscar, am I right?!

This is surely not intended to be as offensive as it could be, but may create unease in some readers. So funny that this book sat on my shelf for five years before I decided to read it They traveled from region to region, following the movements of men.

My enthusiasm for Angelology has me wondering – Are angels are the new vampires??? I so wanted to like this book. The Nephilims are dangerous inhuman creatures angelloogy don’t have empathy.
