    1. 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. [...]

    2. 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 Gab [...]

    3. I was excited to read Destine for this tour because I love biblical, end days type of books. I can assure you, I was not disappointed with Destine. The characters in this book seem to unfold before your eyes. Michelle starts out as a timid teenager who blends easily. But suddenly, there is a couple of new guys in school and her whole life is about to change. I absolutely loved seeing Michelle grow throughout this book, she grew into a strong young woman that any of us ladies would be happy to be [...]

    4. High school can be hell, for Michelle Cross that is quite literal. The four horsemen of the Apocalypse are headed her way and the dreamy Gabriel, with his uber hot back tattoo, tells her only SHE can stop them. What's an Apocalypse without a drool worthy dude? This is such an amazing concept from debut author Katherine Polillo I can't wait to see what she's got in store for us in book 2! Mostly I want more Gabriel.irtlessPlease?

    5. I feel so happy to have been given this book to review for this up and coming new author. What a wonderful first book to debut. The characters are strong and the plot is so original.

    6. 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 [...]

    7. Let me start off by saying that I enjoyed this book so much. I had my doubts with so many angel, demon, and apocalyptic books out there but I was so wrong. And I am so glad I was given the chance to read this book for review.We start off by meeting Michelle who is an ordinary seventeen year old high school girl with her best friend Cami. They are not popular but have each other and that is fine with them both until Cami wants their senior to be different and with the arrival of Gabriel things st [...]

Cami swears that this year is going to be different. And boy, is she right! Cami falls for Alex, who just happens to be the Antichrist.

But sh [...]

    11. I really loved the concept for the plot of Destine, especially the setting, the range and build-up of action and the sweetness of the romance. The protagonist, Michelle, is a likeable character who in many ways is the epitome of normalcy. This really helps the reader relate to her character and cheer from the side lines as she progresses and develops so beautifully.There are many curve balls thrown Michelle’s way, some are a complete shock, some are simply heartbreaking, and all are most defin [...]

    13. Wonderful read! A high school student finds out she is destined to save the world. I loved how the refrences to the bible were linked into the story. Great book! I can not wait for part 2!

    14. It started with a boy, doesn't it always? Well two boys to be truthful, one sent to help save humanity and one sent to destroy us all.Well, I've done it again. I've had a book sitting on my TBR pile for a good ten months before I found the time to read it. And really a book this awesome shouldn't be sitting around waiting for me to get my act together, it should have been read and enjoyed so much sooner!!Michelle and her best friend Cami have been friends since Kindergarten.

    16. A quiet seventeen-year-old girl living in a quite American town where nothing happens and everyone knows everyone. A new boy at school, with pale skin, pale eyes and a mysterious back story who, every time he sees the girl, makes her feel all tingly inside. Wait, doesn’t this sound familiar?Yes that’s what I thought too when I started reading Destine by Katherine Polillo, it sounds a lot like Twilight (the movie, not the books, I haven't read them). But to be fair to the book there are some [...]

    17. 4.0. Nothing absolutely new here, but there were some interesting twists and lots of sexual tension. A quick, easy and entertaining read. It would have been even better if there weren’t grammatical errors on every other page.Plot:Michelle is starting her senior year with her best friend Cami. Even though her mother’s insane and her father is closed off, Michelle is pretty happy with the status quo. Cami, on the other hand, is bound and determined to be popular. She finds a new boyfriend, Ale [...]

    18. Destine: The watcher���s Trilogy Book 1Katherine PolilloReviewed by S. Bree High I am going to start off by saying as a rule anything with religious undertones scare me. Yes it really does scare me. I am not trying to start any type of debate on anything religious. I am just making a statement of the truth for me. So normally this book would not be something I would read. I would have read the synopsis and most likely put the book aside. I have a few exceptions to the rule, and this book i [...]

    20. When I started this book, I wasn't really sure what to expect as I just kind of dived in. I was a little unsure when the first chapter started with a verse from the bible. And was starting to wonder if I should continue, thinking it may be boring and just a bible push. I was SOOOOOOOO wrong. It is not that I am against the bible or church, I go to church and read the bible, just not a fan of being pushed in a religious direction. That being said.She blended everything well in how things happened [...]

    21. I have been reading rave reviews about this book since it came out last summer. I am often wary of so many rave reviews and find such books to be lacking something by the time I get to them. Not so much with this story. It was awesome.In a world of paranormal saturation comes a different story idea. It's the Apocalypse, redone. Okay, it was written during the year that the Mayans had predicted the apocalypse, but I hadn't yet read any YA books about it. This was like a breath of fresh air in the [...]

    22. Not another Angel book, quickly turned into Yes, another Angel book!I was expecting to be sucked in right away because normally books start with action that suck you in. This book did not, it didn't start with action and it didn't instantly suck me in but the characters were likeable so I was compelled to keep reading. Michelle and her best friend's school was like mine, invisibility was apparently my super power so I connected with them on that level. I struggled to read past the mundane set up [...]

    23. This book, Destine by Katherine Polillo, gets 5 stars because it is exactly the kind of book I love to read! It's very captivating, and it's hard to stop reading! At the beginning of each chapter there is a Bible verse. I am familiar with the Bible and read it myself, so I was expecting this to be a religious book. It is not. Now, it does get it's foundation and outline from the Bible in terms of it's an apocalyptic book. A girl, Chelle, is a senior in high school and virtually invisible. She an [...]

    26. I was given this book to read for an honest review in part of a blog tour.Wow! I started and finished this book in a day! Even more impressive, it was my son's birthday! I had started reading this while all the kids were in the pool (I of course had to stop reading and continue spoiling my son after the pool)! We had 6 kids with us so it was an extremely long day however this book drew me in so far I HAD to continue reading it that night after the kids all went to bed! I was exhausted from the l [...]
