Arianna is a Nephilim or a half angel, born to a mortal mother, Maireid, and the angel, Ganymede. She was the first of her kind and became a teacher and a healer to the other Nephilim. When she died, they pleaded for her return. Although reluctant, she agreed and is reborn as Alexandria, daughter of Lady Juliana and Lord Errol Fitzgerald Groaban. When a Nephilim of the Fallen tries to kill the twenty-one-year-old Alexandria, Ganymede and the others feel that it is time to tell Alexandria the truth. Immortal Reborn - Arianna's Choice (Volume 1) is written by Natalie D. Wilson.
The beginning chapters start slowly; a matter which never fails to make me impatient but the story is fascinating so that my interest didn't waver. I had a little trouble in trying to grasp the time period when Alexandria’s story takes place. I guessed it as somewhere between Victorian era right to the late '50s – because of the family’s butler and her parents’ title – and gradually got it right as the present time. The story already has the angels and demons theme that I love, and the well-thought out plot is a welcome bonus. I instantly gravitated towards Alexandria although her initial hesitation to accept her real identity frustrated me a little. The life at Aeoferth Hall also slows the pace down more than I like.
Even so, Immortal Reborn is a fine tale by Natalie D. Wilson and one of the best I've read so far. A solid read.
