What a great YA genre read The Reborn is!!! It has all the components of an amazing young adult story. There is a dash of love. a pinch of heroism, and a cup full of intrigue! I give The Reborn a 3.5 stars and a must read for the YA lovers out there!
This story takes us back over a span of 100 lifetimes as two young lovers try to find each other as they are "reborn". Dain is a take charge, provider type of guy and is desperate to find his soul mate Tara. Tara is a typical damsel in distress and wants nothing more than to be saved and taken care of. Problem is...Tara is gone and in her place is Bonnie.... the take no prisoners, I can take care of myself without your help thank you very much... type of girl. Dain now finds himself face with the heartache of knowing this is his last lifetime and he will not have Tara there to share it with him. He also is battling the feelings he has for Bonnie, as well as being on the run from the agency that experimented on him to keep his soul reincarnating!
Dain (Dylan) learns through the story that his life is not at all what he thought it was, and neither were the people in it. I was intrigued throughout the book and found myself wondering what the heck was going to happen next! Casse Narome did a great job at giving the back story of each character and keeping he flow of the present story going. If YA is your genre, I urge you to read The Reborn and I look forward to book 2!
EXCERPT-Oh my God. I held my breath. This was going to happen. The giddiness was almost too much to take, but as she unzipped my pants, I heard a door upstairs open and close with a bang. We both froze. Bonnie’s eyes opened wide with obvious terror.“Holy shit,” I whispered. “Your parents?”She shook her head and pushed me off of her. “Worse. My brothers.”I jumped up and scooped up our shirts before I tossed her one. I buttoned my jeans in a mad rush and shook out the shirt as the basement door opened. I glanced at the shirt in my hand, frowned at how tiny it looked, and groaned. Yes, I had tossed Bonnie a shirt, the wrong shirt. As the stairs creaked, I looked over at Bonnie and her enormous eyes widened even more.“That’s mine,” she whispered, my shirt nearly drowning her body. I groaned again as two boys stepped into the room and one pair of feet stopped just an inch from a condom that I must have abandoned when Bonnie had pushed me away. I saw the guys soak in the scene—me with no shirt on, Bonnie swallowed by the wrong one. The taller of the two bent and picked up the condom at his feet. Where was the second condom? Collectively, our gazes moved to my hand where the second condom and Bonnie’s shirt still lingered. I couldn’t move, other than to let the shirt and the partially opened condom wrapper fall from my hand. Bonnie shut her eyes tight as the condom, of course, landed on top of the shirt. Both guys frowned angrily as they glared at me. The smaller one, who still stood at six foot something, spoke, “Your fly is open.”I was dead.
