Review: Destine by Katherine Polillo

5 out of 5 Stars   Destine by Katherine Pollilo   For years Michelle's mother believed that angels and demons were after her. Michelle and many believed her mother was crazy. But when strange things starts happening at her school, and a boy claiming to be the fallen angel Gabriel shows up, her world takes a huge step into that insanity.   Michelle was destined to be the instrument for the archangel Michael, and this means that she needs to battle evil. But when the evil hides in your school the task can be difficult. With the help of Gabriel, Michelle embraces her destiny and tries to stop the apocalypse.   I really loved the Christianity believes used in this novel. The author used them and together with a great plot created something wonderful. Micelle starts off disbelieving and scared but soon finds the courage to believe and battle evil. Gabriel character was there to assist her and help guide her. I would have loved to see him also in a few battles, and hope the next adventure he will be in fighting too.   Other books that came to mind were The Da Vinci Code and Gabriel.   In all the book was well written and I really enjoyed it. I loved the romance that blossomed between Michelle and Gabriel. But my most favorite part was when Michelle kicked but against Scarlett. There were also some sad moments that grabbed my heart. Excellent execution to a wonderful novel.   Quote from the book: "I thought I smelled skank, should have known it was you"   Book Links: Barnes&Noble: Her Author App on my Facebook:         Book Blurb:   Michelle Cross is an average, seventeen year old girl growing up in a small town in New Jersey.
