Indie Gantz is certainly an author who loves to dabble in the space time continuum while chronicling the adventures of her imagination. Kindred picks up directly from Passage where the Damuzi twins, Charlie and Tirigan, try to hide their overwhelming secret while striving to learn more about their mother. The timeline of the novel transports readers is quite similar to Passage so it wasn't overwhelming to be cast into a sea of time. Gantz ensured that when the mergence of the twins' timelines intersected there was a smooth transition. Tirigan definitely still struggles with emotional attachment which makes readers want to reach in and take him by the hand; still, I enjoyed seeing the gradual character developments that are being implemented to Tirigan and Charlie's characters.
