In March 2014, Anna Durand introduced a unique new series of paranormal romance novellas. For the first time ever, all four tales in the Reborn series are collected in one book.
Dawn woke up drowning, inside a tank in a laboratory straight out of a science fiction movie. Blinded by amnesia, she has no choice but to trust in the alluring stranger who pulls her out of the tank, but Jake Maxwell knows more than he cares to admit. Now Redeo Biotech, the company responsible for Dawn’s resurrection, is hunting them both.
As their passion for each other blossoms, Jake and Dawn must outwit their enemies and rediscover their past lives. But when their greatest foe rises from the ashes of ancient Egypt to destroy their future, only Jake and Dawn’s eternal connection has the power to save them.
This collection includes the novellas Reborn to Die, Reborn to Burn, the award-winning Reborn to Avenge, and Reborn to Conquer.
The Paranormal Aspects of the Reborn Series
Paranormal romance is such a varied subgenre, and that’s one of things I love about it. Each author creates a new world with unique characters and history. With so many mythologies to choose from, we writers never run out of ideas. For the Reborn series, I combined my love of history, mythology, and science to build my own little corner of the multiverse that is paranormal romance.
The beliefs of the ancient Egyptians became the keystone of the entire series. Dawn was murdered in ancient Egypt, cursed, and resurrected in the present day—seemingly by science alone, but the truth proves far more supernatural. I turned to my favorite ancient culture, Egypt, for inspiration for most of the paranormal elements in the series. Without spoiling the stories for you, I can let you in on a few secrets. Here are elements from Egyptian mythology that play a vital role in the series:
- To the Egyptians, magic was a real and tangible force. For instance, if bad luck struck, you might pray to the god of chaos, Seth, and naming your red-headed child after him might have the power to forestall any future misfortune.
- Though they didn’t often use curses, archaeologists have found examples of them.
- The day-wandering soul. The dead were believed to walk among the living in the daytime as disembodies souls. They returned to their bodies at night; hence, the tradition of mummifying the deceased.
- The power of healing. The Egyptians most often relied on magic as their brand of medicine. They did have medical treatments too, but their primary method of treating ailments relied heavily on the supernatural.
Another belief not specific to ancient Egypt is reincarnation. Cultures around the world have beliefs concerning the soul of the deceased returning in a new form. Even today, some people believe they have recovered memories of past lives. The idea of the eternal soul coming back to life in a new body is important to the Reborn series, and I came up with it thanks to my life-long interest in all things weird.
As you read the Reborn series, keep in mind that the majority of the paranormal elements I included have a basis in history. We humans have, it seems, always loved the supernatural—and I hope we always will. A little mystery makes life more interesting.
