Michelle Cross is an average, seventeen year old girl growing up in a small town in New Jersey.  Up until her senior year, her life has consisted of a rather unglamorous existence.  Her closet friend Cami has been by her side since kindergarten, she has a loving if somewhat absente father, and a mother who is unique to say the least.  Michelle’s mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia when she was twelve years old, and ever since then she has had delusions of angels and demons battling over her only child.  Michelle accepts her mother’s delusions as schizophrenic ramblings, until a handsome new boy finds her at school.  Little by little Michelle’s world is turned upside down.  The new boy claims to be the Archangel Gabriel cast from heaven, her best friend falls for the Antichrist, and come to find out Michelle’s mother has seen it coming all along.  So instead of being consumed with prom and graduation, Michelle finds herself battling the evils of Hell in her small town.  The four horsemen of the apocalypses have descended on her high school and with the help of Gabriel, her very own angel; she must stop the events leading to the apocalypse. What surprises Michelle even more than her role in saving humanity is the love that develops between Gabriel and herself. Can their love bridge the world between heaven and earth?  Can Michelle stop the powers of Hell in time?  Michelle and Gabriel find themselves the pawns in a very dangerous game between an ancient power with a mysterious message and Satan himself.

Author Bio and Picture
Katherine Polillo originally planned to grow-up and become an archeologist. Unfortunately the desert air dried out her skin, the dirt was impossible to get from under her fingernails, and she just couldn’t pull off a fedora like Harrison Ford. So instead she pursued a career in education. She currently teaches high school history and special education, while fabricating fictional stories in her free time. She never really outgrew her imaginary friends stage, and instead has created lives and stories for the creations of her imagination to live in. When she is present in reality and not off on an adventure with her imaginary friends, she lives in a small, New Jersey town with her husband, the man to which all fictional leading men are compared, and their two spoiled rotten, ungrateful cats.

My Review:

Excerpt 2

“I didn’t come here for you, I want Alex,” I shouted in his direction over the howling of the wind that seemed to be picking up. 
“Well its not about what you want.  I know that Watcher of yours has you thinking you’re something special, but I don’t quite share his opinions.  You see I’m enjoying being up here, in your realm, and I’ll be damned if some teenage girl is going to take it away now.” 
I flinched slightly at the mention of Gabriel.  My heart pulled and I momentarily forgot my mission.  I physically shook my head in order to clear my thought of Gabriel away.  “Not just any teenage girl, a Defender of Heaven,” I tensed and prepared to advance.  Reaching behind me, preparing to pull the weapon I had hid in the waist band of my jeans. 
“Ha,” he barked loudly with artificial laughter.  “Like you’re so unique.  The Powers seem to have a thing for teenage girls like you: Ruby Bridges, Irena Sendler, Sacagawea, and that brat Joan of Arc.  I find it a little disturbing their fascination with young girls, but you see my dear you’re just the next in a long line, nothing special.” 
He wanted to trade insults, I could play that game as well.  “Well I’d run along and let your Prince face the music.  I’ve already disposed of two of his henchmen and call me crazy they were more threatening than you.  War and Death are scarier, more lethal threats than Famine, sorry its not the 1500s anymore.  Thanks to modern day agriculture and these places called grocery stores you’re a bit of an out dated threat. 
He sneered at me, a look of distain on his face, “So literal.  You and all of humanity.  As long as there is greed their will be Famine.  I control the power, I control the resources.  This little financial debacle your country finds itself in, that’s me.  Your welcome!  Freddie Mac and Sallie Mae are my children, my creation.  Wall street is my favorite playground.  And notice who always looses, not the CEOs they’ve sold themselves to me long ago, its the little guy, the middle class.  Ask a family who just had their house foreclosed on after Dad lost his job if Famine is an outdated threat.” 
The nausea washed over me.  I knew evil existed in all walks of life, I knew that the country was struggle to correct financial decisions that had left millions unemployed.  What had I been doing while Famine ran amuck, uncontrolled and unthreatened.  I quickly hid this self doubt before he could realize his words had struck a blow.   
“And don’t get me started on your modern day agriculture, one word for you Defender… Monsanto.” 
I rolled my shoulders and bent my knees attempting to refocus myself to the task at hand.  Enough of this, I didn’t come her to chat.  “Well congratulations, I was going to let you slink back off to hell, but you’ve convinced me to kill you.”
