Reborn by Jenna Greene

Those who bear marks on their skin are doomed to a life of slavery. Lexil has seven.

Sold into servitude, Lexil must deal with brutal punishments, back-breaking labor, and the loss of every freedom. When a young child she has befriended faces a horrible fate, Lexil must intervene to protect her, no matter what the risk.

With the help of a boy named Finn, the trio flee into the Wastelands. There, they must evade those who hunt them while trying to survive a barren landscape. Lexil must face challenges she’s never imagined existed, all while learning what it means to truly be reborn.

My Review

5 stars

In this world it is divided between those that have one life and those that are marked and thought to be reborn. Those that are reborn are slaves for those that have only one life. Lexil was raised as a once born until the marks started showing up on her when she is a teenager unlike others that show marks when they are born or young kids. Lexil is torn from her life and sold into slavery. Not really understanding what is going on and how she should act mean Lexil goes along with everything thrown at her.

But then something happens and Lexil goes on the run with two other reborn’s from the plantation that she is sold to. They go hide in the unclaimed cities where they learn more about themselves and the different classes of this dystopian world. But Lexil learns more about herself and who she wants to become.

I really enjoyed this story. It has a darkness and sad events that drew me in and made me hope that Lexil would find a way out of her situation. I loved this world even though it was dark and there were tough moments to read. I really hope that there will be more to come from this world. It would be a great series.

This book quickly drew me in and left be frantically reading. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next and found that I had read the book in an entire afternoon. This is a great dystopian story and one I recommend checking out.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Ari at Candid Book Reviews for the opportunity to read and share this book.

My Review
5 Stars

Mark Wojcik works as a mechanic by day. But at night he hunts the paranormal creatures in Pennsylvania. Mark works for the Occulatum as a New Templar Knight. He had a “normal” life once until his family was killed by a wendigo. Since then he protect other humans by clearing out the paranormal creatures. But things are not easy when hunting the creatures and what could go wrong does as Mark seems to have to do everything the hard way.

This is a collection of four novella so you will jump from one adventure to another. Mark is quite the character. He is a serious cutie that has a great sarcastic sense of humor. Plus it seems no matter what he does things are going to go wrong in the worst way possible. I really enjoyed his views on dealing with his family, I can relate.

I loved this book and can’t wait to read more in this series. It has everything for anyone that likes paranormal stories. I didn’t realize that I have read a couple books from Gail Martin that I absolutely loved but nothing from Larry Martin. I will have to fix this shortly.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
