Love, love, love this book! First, gorgeous cover. I'm so in love with it. I love everything about it!
Amy Plum takes us into the world of revenants (a french term, since the setting of the book is Paris). There are basically good guys (who die in place of another and are rewarded by coming back to life) and bad guys (who kill humans and never die). So this was a new concept to me which totally hooked me. Then of course you have the guy meets girl, guy falls for girl, girl finds out major secret and breaks it off, only to get back together and have a swoon worthy romance.
Kate is recovering from her parents death. She's having a hard time just living until she meets Vincent. She knows he's dangerous but can't stay away from him. She's scared of falling for him and having to watch him die for others, over and over again. He makes the ultimate sacrifice for his kind (to not die). Vincent is sweet and passionate and a little old fashioned. Kate is sad and innocent but very relatable.
