Summary from Goodreads:
The Kindred is the second novella in The Night School Vampire Hunter trilogy.

Angel and her friends at Ame Academy, a boarding school for preternatural and humans are back, and they are preparing for battle against the dark forces that kidnapped Angel’s younger brother Jordan. Angel had recently discovered that she was a Hunter and that she alone has a special weapon against her enemies, her blood, which is discovered to be toxic to her enemies. Angel is prepared to use her training and all that is at her disposal in order to save Jordan, even if that means joining forces with the strange and mysterious Rafael, who at their first meeting, she recognized him as the boy she had dreamed about for weeks prior to his arrival at the school. Angel cannot shake the feeling that she knew Rafael before, and is hopelessly drawn to her extremely handsome fellow hunter.

Rafael frightens her, he hints of a secret; another time and another life lived.

Can love survive two lifetimes?

Events unfold that provides the answers to who Rafael really is and what they mean to one another; and along with these strange and blossoming emotions for Rafael, along with guilt and fear for her brothers safety; Angel discovers that she is more than just a Vampire Hunter, and that she plays a major role in a ancient prophecy, which she must fulfill by facing a force so evil that survival is not promised.

But she will face the Dark One, Angel will sacrifice all, if it means saving all whom she loves.

Many questions are answered, but the drama is just beginning….

My Review: 
Kindred is a great sequel to Night School. I have been waiting to read Kindred, I loved reading the first one. It is set in the same format as the first one, in a blog post style, which I think is really neat.

Dasheen (aka Angel) with the help of her friends is trying to figure out a way to get her brother back from a group of Vampires. But that's not all, there is one that wants to release an ancient evil, a Wasiki that will destroy some of the others. Then there is her mysterious relationship with Rafael and how he fits into her background.

In this one, we are introduced to the Thunderkin, a creature/being I have never read about before. I really enjoyed reading about the Thunderkin and finding out how they fit into this story. Most of the book is told from Dasheen's point of view. Although we do get to read some from her friend Elin and from Rafael. I was a bit shocked by some of the background information we learned and the unique twists and turns that this book throws at you. I would have liked for this to be longer so we could have learned more about Dasheen's other friends backgrounds and just more happening in the present. Most of this novella was packed with the background of Dasheen, Rafael and the Thunderkin. I'm waiting patiently (ok trying to) for the third novella. I would love to see this be made into a longer series, love it that much!
