Many questions are answered, but the drama is just beginning….
My Review:  I was excited to review the second book in the Night School series by Michelle Cornwell-Jordan.  The first book, Night School Vampire Hunter, gave us a glimpse into the life of Angel and her brother, Jordan, who are attending a boarding school.  At the end of the last book Angel had discovered that she was a hunter, her brother had been abducted by evil vampires sent on turning him, and she had run into the guy of her dreams.  Literally, the guy of her dreams, she had been dreaming of Rafael for weeks before he arrived on campus. 

In book two the story continues with new twists and turns.  Angel is trying to uncover Rafael's secret and save her brother.  Thrown into the mix is a new layer of evil - the Thunderkin.  The Thunderkin is set on releasing an ancient evil.  Will Angel be able to save her brother, figure out her connection with Rafael and stop the Thunderkin?  Find out by reading Kindred.

These novellas are fast fun reads.  The writing is done well, and the characters are well developed.  You find yourself right there in the thick of things with Angel andn her friends.  I can't wait to see waht happens in book three.
