Kindred (ARC) Review
Description from goodreads:
The first time I meet an angel, it is Raphael and I am eighteen.
Miriam is an unassuming college freshman stuck on campus after her spring break plans fall through. She's not a religious girl--when pressed she admits reluctantly to believing in a higher power. Truth be told, she's about as comfortable speaking about her faith as she is about her love life, which is to say, not at all.
Then the archangel Raphael pays Miriam a visit, and she finds herself on a desperate mission to save two of her contemporaries. To top it all off, her twin brother, Mo, has also had a visitation, but from the opposite end of the good-evil spectrum, which leaves Miriam to wonder--has she been blessed and her brother cursed or vice versa? And what is the real purpose behind her mission.
Miriam meets Raphael, and archangel and then figures out she must save two people. Her brother Mo has also had a "visit" and his was from the oppsite side - evil. Miriam then embarks on a mission to save the two people.
This book sounded so interesting, but it was dull. I felt like it was going to get really interesting, but it never did. The book was a good idea, but it wasn't exciting, it was Miriam going from day to day and nothing exciting happened. 2/5
