Blurb

My name is Alexia Mercier. All 17 years of my existence have been pretty ordinary. Sleep. Eat. School. Repeat. But I loved it. I loved my silent boring life, because that’s what I wanted. I had it all planned out. Everything was going accordingly until one fateful night. It started with whispers in the cold silent night. Then the cries of a baby. And then everything fell apart. Everything changed that night. My whole life was no longer the same. I realized that it had all been…a lie. I had to race against time to fight for my life and everyone else’s. A race impossible to win. I had to fight against a power that was centuries old. A power that represented the fire in my life. Will I come out of this alive? Will my life ever be the same? Or will The Malevolent Rebirth forever destroy me? *** The Malevolent Rebirth - A Young Adult Paranormal Suspense

Prologue

Year 1814

Her footsteps sounded off the walls of the alley. The hurried steps against the pavement showed her panic. Her breath was coming out in heavy puffs, and she tried to calm her anxiety but couldn’t. She looked down at her watch to see the time, but darkness blinded her. The alley had two lampposts, but they were a distance apart. She had to wrap her scarf around her nose to keep out the smell of rotten garbage.

Her mother always warned her to stay away from the dark alleys, especially at night. But she didn’t have a choice. The other roads were closed off. She clutched her bag more closely and kept walking. She was so close to the end of the alley. A few more steps and she would reach the main road.

A sudden noise behind her caused her steps to falter. She looked left and right over her shoulder but didn’t see anything. She heard it again. It sounded like footsteps. Angry ones. It made her skin crawl. She shuddered against the cold wind and her growing panic and picked up the pace.

Right there. She could see the light of the main roads. She walked faster and faster, but the steps got closer and closer. She ran until she reached the mouth of the alley then onto the main roads. The steps had stopped. The alley was quiet all of a sudden. She leaned against the wall and breathed a sigh of relief and smiled.

As she stepped away from the wall, a strong hand clamped onto her arm. She shrieked but no sound escaped as another hand went to cover her mouth. She struggled against the stranger’s hold but to no avail. She was dragged back into the dark alley and pushed to the ground. Her eyes closed on the impact but reopened. She thought she was having a nightmare because red eyes were staring at her. Red glowing eyes. The man hissed and she saw long fangs protruding against his lower lips. She screamed against the hand on her mouth but it was no use. No one could see her. No one could hear her. No one was coming to save her because death had come sooner than expected.

Remini UDA: Death's apprentice was a very fun story for me, it reminded of "The messenger of Fear" series and originally i thought this was inspired by those books but i was happy to say the story took things in its own way.To start with i will say that the plot and idea of death being an eccentric age old ...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
