Book Review: Reborn by Cherie Reich

Reborn by Cherie Reich

My thoughts...

Rich with Greek Mythology and Impressive Word Building, Reborn is Cherie Reich’s Debut Masterpiece

Yssa came into the world as a still-born prophetess. While the Gods argued over her fate, one in particular believed in her and brought her back to life. Now, she must face her destiny as she catches glimpses of other people’s fates along the way. For Yssa, this is more a curse than an honor, because she doesn’t want to leave her home, her family, and the boy she loves. Little does she know the challenges that she must face, and the tough decisions she has to make when her prophecies involve her own family.

Set in a magical land, this tale of adventure sings with Reich’s love of Greek mythology. I loved how thick the mythology was and that Reborn was still a breeze to read despite the rich imagery and painstaking detail. There is a solemn elegance in the prose which reminds me of the greatness of Lord of the Rings and other magical classics. Yssa is a sweet girl with a big heart raised by a kind family. I loved hearing about her journey and seeing her change from the frightened girl in the beginning to the independent, brave hearted Prophetess she becomes. And the journey has just begun. I eagerly await book 2. So far, every word is gold.
