Right after I do this review, I am off to research the Author! I believe she is some kind of Voodoo Queen. Yes, that's what I said, Voodoo Queen. She obviously possessed me. Why you ask, well I do not read books, that go to in depth with God, bible, and the end of times. It scares me to death! Plus, I am worried it will counter react with my believes and I will judge the book on that. But this was so not the case, this time! So, I got emotionally attached to the characters, fell in love with Gabriel, let my mind get twisted by the Author.

Listen up everyone, if you love to angels..... Witt.... action..... and love stories. You better go grab this book.

For me, I will be honest. It scares the pee diddle out of me to read a apocalyptic book. When people mix bible and books together, I get very nervous. As I already stated above. But I am truly serious. When I first started reading this book. I said to myself, "Self" you are not going to read this book at night. LOL I start 9 am. But when I finished it, it was in the middle of the night. I think this Author put a curse on book. I could not stop reading it. The story flowed so well, I got lost in time.

I will tell you a bit about the story but that is it. I will not give any good deets away!

You start off in the book learning about Michelle and her best friend Cami. Best friends since kindergarten. They are now starting their senior year of high school. They both know this year will be different. But they never dreamed their year would take this turn. Michelle, has learned about her destiny. Her best friend turns against her. Oh wait, let me throw in a fallen angel, is non other than Michelle's guardian angel. Not too mention Micheal the Archangel. Now everyone better sit down for this one.

I recieved this book from the author for an honest review.
While reading Destine, I found myself in awe of this first time writers book. It has everything young adults need today in a book. Michelle Cross is a character one can look up to. I myself adore her and her handsome angel Gabriel. This is one of those books you finish and can't wait to read the next one. I am so excited to see what ends up happening to our couple. Not only did the author pull me into her book by creating an atmosphere that was believable, but the characters were strong and efficient.
I loved the chapter headings and thought they went very well with the chapter. If you haven't already bought this book, well what are you waiting for? The Apocolypse?

What would you do if one morning you woke up and you realized that your life would never be the same as it was the day before? Your only friend has turned against you. You have been told you're the only person who can save humanity, that it is your destiny. The Antichrist is in your school running for student president, and you have a fallen angel as your guardian, to help you, guide you in your role to defend humanity. Well, that is what seventeen year old Michelle Cross is facing in Destine.

Michelle Cross is a seventeen year old girl who is starting her senior year of high school, in the small town of Shady Lane, NJ. Michelle doesn't have the "normal" family. Her mother has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia since she was twelve years old and her father works as a construction worker. Michelle takes care of her family, cooking dinner, cleaning, and helping with her mentally ill mother. She isn't like other girls her age. She isn't popular and doesn't care to be, she has always felt different from others, like something else was meant to be for her. She is her own person and only has one friend who she has known since Kindergarten and has been inseparable with since and that is Cami.

When Michelle enters senior year, everything changes. Cami decides she wants to do something different and wants to be on the student council. She also has eyes for Alex Chase. There is just something about him that Michelle doesn't trust, something that is off. And soon she will find out what it is. This is when everything starts falling apart for Michelle. Losing her best friend is just the beginning. Cami is hateful to her and this isn't like her friend that she has known almost all her life.

I recently had an opportunity to read the debut novel by author Katherine Polillo, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! As soon as I began the first chapter I couldn't stop. I was immediately sucked into the world of seventeen year old Michelle Cross.

The novel is set in the very small town of Shady Lane, New Jersey. Michelle did not have the perfect childhood, but she had her best friend Cami. Her mother was suffering from schizophrenia, so she was no longer an active part in Michelle's life and Michelle had already spent the last five years of her life hiding this diagnosis. As the novel begins, Michelle is getting ready to start her senior year of high school. She expected it to be like all the rest, but boy was she was wrong!

There is a new student in town and Michelle has no idea how much Gabriel is going to change her life. Any sense of normalcy she once felt will soon be gone. As she gets to know Gabriel, Michelle's world is thrust head first into the battle between good and evil. There is no way for Michelle to predict what is going to happen next in her life. Her best friend whom was once by her side at all times isn't around anymore and everyone at school is acting really strange. The fate of humanity is in Michelle's hands. Will she be up for the challenge? How is she going to deal with the literal Hell that is suddenly all around her? What will happen to her and the ones she cares about if she doesn't succeed?

I totally loved this book from start to finish. It was one of those books that captivates you. I didn't want to go to sleep last night because I was curious what was going to happen next. (Okay, I was dying to know what was going to happen). The characters were wonderfully well written.
