After being accepted to Kensington University in Cedar Creek, Massachusetts, she sets out on a journey that pulls her deeper into the world of witches and vampires, uncovering the truth about her past and discovering who she is meant to be. (Taken from Goodreads)
Thoughts: Reborn is a really interesting novella that features Lily who is half vampire and half witch. I haven’t read a book about vampires for quite a while so Reborn was quite good in that sense.
I like how this book was set up. It was told around quite a few different characters and also through a few diary entries and notes. I thought that the diary entries and notes were quite a good addition to the book as it added that little something extra into the book.
I don’t think that there was a lot of character building going on in Reborn but I think that Reborn was more of a setting up a really interesting story line to be carried on in the next book. Although, I did think that Lily was an intriguing character. I did find Xander to be quite interesting as well.
The concept of witches and vampires was really interesting. It also mentions Nyx who I have come across in another couple of novels so it’s always good to see how different authors approach goddesses and myths and legends.
I loved the ending; it left an opening for the next book which I really look forward to reading. If you like vampires or witches, or are just looking for a fun read, that is quite quick but has quite a lot of action and excitement, then definitely try Reborn.
