Reborn by Ley Mesina

Title: Reborn (A Goddess of Night Novella: Book One)

Author: Ley Mesina

Publisher: Ley Mesina

Pages: 85

Reviewed by: Sabrina

Lily Westbrook discovers that being half witch and half vampire is more of a challenge than she thought. When her powers mature on her eighteenth birthday, she unlocks a mystery that many witches thought was a legend.

After moving back to her birthplace in Cedar Creek, MA to attend Kensington University, Lily is instantly pulled deeper into the world she was kept from—the world of witches and vampires—uncovering the truth about her past and discovering who she is meant to be.

My Thoughts

Reborn is an interesting read. Lily, a half vampire and half witch, is the daughter of Claire, a witch, and Nathaniel, who is the same as Lily. Claire and Nathaniel had a forbidden love since vampires and witches are supposedly mortal enemies.

The story starts off when Lily is about to have her 18th birthday, giving her her full powers. She moves back to her birthplace (leaving her aunt's care for the past 18 years) and begins to discover secrets like what really happened on the night her parents died. Along the way, she befriends Roxy, a witch, and also Drew and Xander, two vampires. She also starts to develop feelings for Xander while Roxy and Drew also grow closer.

I like that the book switches to different viewpoints every chapter and that some chapters start with a diary entry. I get to know what every character is feeling and thinking, and I am filled on some back story that only a certain character knows. It's way too short. I wish it was longer. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series!
