The Birth of Jaiden by Jennifer Malone Wright
Long ago, a prophecy was foreseen. A child would be born, a child who held the power to destroy the world. Now, it is up to Alexander Lucas, a one-hundred-year-old vampire, to keep the baby girl safe from his arch enemy Malcolm. In order to save her, Alexander must raise the child as his own. Will he be able to resist his vampire tendencies to care for a human baby? With the help of the wisest of the supernatural, an organization called The Great Council, Alexander must face many battles to ensure the safety of this very special child.
I would describe The Birth of Jaiden as refreshing and inspirational, it’s not your typical vampire story and that right there is what I love about this book. The story centers around the life of a century old vampire named Alexander Lucas, who is struggling to come to terms with what he has become and Dealing with the death of his family. After all this time Alexander is still searching for his purpose, he breaks into his local church every night to pray. Even after what he has become he has not lost his faith in god. One day his prayers are answered, in the form of a sweet newborn baby girl. Alexander must protect and care for a newborn witch named Jaiden. For she alone holds the key to saving them all from Malcolm or destroying everything. The Birth of Jaiden really has everything you want in a paranormal book. Guardian Angels, Fallen Angels, reformed Vampire, non-reformed Vampires, good Witches, evil Witches, Slayers, and Magicians you get the Idea. Overall I loved the book and if there is a 2nd book (and boy do I hope there will be more) I will defiantly be reading it.
