“When Kate Mercier’s parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life–and memories–behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.
Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant–an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.”
Quite a good book. The title might seem a little – how should I put it – disconcerting? You may think that it is going to be about vampires. Well you are not entirely correct, but you are not entirely incorrect either. This book is about undead people. But they are not zombies and they do not eat your flesh (as zombies are supposed to do.) What they are are people who died in the place of someone else. The theory is (in this book) is that if you die in the place of someone else (for example is is that if you take a bullet for someone else) and in the course of destiny, the other person was supposed to die, the dead person comes back to life. They stay dead for 3 days and then they come back to life again. They are immortal but they eat like we do but they don’t need any sleep. Except every 3 or 4 weeks, they are in hibernation for 3 days so they can get their energy back. Yes, it is a little confusing but I am not great at explaining that type of thing. It was very interesting though. I would recommend for you to pick this book up because the theory of what happens is quite interesting and the idea makes the story that bit more exciting.
The story kept you interested and kept you turning the pages. I read it in one day and might read it again. The characters were described very well and you could picture what the characters looked like and that added to the whole effect of the story.

It says that it is the first in a trilogy so I am excited for the other two.
Read the book and tell me what you think.
