Book Review: Reborn by Jenna Greene

About Reborn by Jenna Greene


On the “Best Apocalyptic or Post-Apocalyptic YA Fiction” list on Goodreads!

Seven times marked. One way out…

From birth, Lexil is counted among the marked, souls who have lived before and must now serve those who are on their first lives. Which means she’s doomed to a life of slavery with its hard labors and brutal punishments. A life she’s learning to endure.

But when the marked child she’s befriended is faced with a fate worse than death, Lexil decides to fight back. No matter the risk, no matter the cost.

Her only hope is to flee to the Wastelands with the one person she trusts, Finn. As he leads them through the deadly lands, she realizes that there are only two classes of people in the dangerous wilds, the hunters and the hunted. And among them, those who carry the knowledge of what it truly means to be a Reborn.

But to get to that truth and escape the barren lands alive, Lexil must face challenges that will test everything she thought she knew–and everything she thought she was…

The 100 meets Hunger Games and Divergent in this stunning Young Adult Dystopian trilogy.

Reborn Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I was compensated for my time reading the book and writing this review. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and are based on my honest personal experience reading the book. Nor did the author in any way shape or form ever pressure me to give a positive review.

Reborn, Jenna Greene’s dystopian novel, takes place in a world divided between the privileged “once-borns” and the oppressed “Reborns.” The presence or absence of marks on an individual’s skin, reflecting the number of lives they have lived, is the defining attribute of this culture. Life is generally comfortable for “once-borns,” but “reborns” like Lexil, our resilient protagonist, faces a dismal existence. Lexil, who has seven marks, is sentenced to a life of servitude that includes hard labour and cruel punishments.
