Are you ready to challenge fate?
To save a kingdom, a prophetess must challenge Fate.
On the day of Yssa’s death and rebirth, the god Apenth chose her as the Phoenix Prophetess.
Sea serpents and gods endanger the young prophetess’s journey and sour the omens. Yssa is cursed instead of blessed, and her duties at the Temple of Apenth prove it. She spends her days reading dusty scrolls, which does nothing to help her forget Tym, the boy back home. But the annoying yet gorgeous ferryman’s son Liam proves to be a distraction she can’t predict, even though he rarely leaves her alone for two sand grains.
Her boring temple life screeches to a halt when visions of her parents’ murders consume her. Yssa races across an ocean to stop the future. If she can’t change Fate, she’ll refuse to be the Phoenix Prophetess any longer. Fate, however, has other plans for her and the kingdom.
Yssa must either accept her destiny or fight to change Fate.
Cherie Reich's debut novel is wonderfully creative and beautifully written.
REBORN introduces us to Yssa, a seventeen-year-old girl about to take up her duties as the Phoenix Prophetess. We accompany her as she journeys from her ordinary island life across a dangerous sea towards the future she's always known she'll have to face. But surviving a sea serpent attack is only the beginning. Secret plots and terrifying visions await Yssa when she arrives in Amora, and I couldn't wait to get back to my Kindle each night to see where Yssa's adventure would take her next.
I thoroughly enjoyed losing myself in the fantasy world of REBORN. The descriptive prose and colourful metaphors allowed me to visualise the story as if I were really there, and clever worldbuilding introduced new mythology, customs, creatures, and slang in a way that was both intriguing and believable.
The ending brought new revelations while tying up some loose ends. Other mysteries are yet to be solved, though, and I'm eager to discover what comes next!
And for those who are romantics at heart (like me), never fear: the growing (somewhat forbidden) relationship between Yssa and a certain ferryman's son will not leave you disappointed ;-)
