Synopsis

Rebirth by Ravin Tija Maurice is a YA Paranormal story set in the early 17th century. In this historic fiction, the only true historic figure is Elizabeth Bathory, however, there are references to Vlad III the Impaler of Wallachia.

Ms. Maurice has written an exciting tale filled with all sorts of paranormal characters. Her descriptive writing paints a rich picture of the various settings as the characters travel throughout Europe. I could picture each creepy forest, beautiful gown and aristocratic court. The detail of the story does slow the pace a bit, but Rebirth is so action-packed that the plot didn’t drag.

The lineage and history of the main character, Katrine, is fully explored and explained. Katrine’s transformation through the story is parallel to the changes and growth every young adult experiences—her changes just happen to be paranormal in nature. Like any young adult, Katrine must figure her way through crushes, first kisses, misdirection, malice and the rest of adulthood while experiencing all sorts of body changes and emotions.

Rebirth is filled with magic, vampires, werewolves, witches and witch hunts. It also features accepting communities of paranormal creatures in which a young girl can find her way to adulthood.

3.5 stars
