In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

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.

Cover

I like these covers. Sure they’re a little typical but they’re really pretty.

Initial Thoughts

The first book in this series was a reread. I just never got around to finishing it for whatever reason. Then I saw all three books on BookOutlet so I had to get them. I just kind of started one and then all of a sudden I was done all three. Weird how that happens right?

My New BFF

I’m picking Jules for this one because he was my favourite Revenant. I just thought he was adorable and hilarious all the time. Didn’t matter what he was up too, he always made me laugh. He’s one of those characters that almost always happy too. He kind of just goes with the flow and whatever happens he accepts.

My Crush

I didn’t like Vincent much at first but he started to grow on me after the first book. He just tried so hard to be a normal guy and I loved that. He was also realistic about everything. He knew he wasn’t going to grow old but he tried to make the best of the situation. I liked that. I also liked that the parents (in this case grandparents) didn’t just let their child wander off and have all these crazy near death experiences and everything. They were actually part of the story! Yay for being realistic!

Writing Style

I found the authors writing to be fairly average but the plot easily sucked me in. I also found the characters to all be entertaining and often mysterious since there was a “leak” in the group and you didn’t know who it was. I liked trying to figure out some stuff on my own even thought the ending was really predictable for me.

Closing Thoughts

I would easily recommend this book to everyone! Especially those a little newer to paranormal because this is a nice easy one. There isn’t too much crazy stuff to wrap your head around. That was nice of the author wasn’t it? This is probably one of those series that I won’t mind rereading every once and a while.

4  out of 5 stars

    I love my paranormal books and this one sounds like one I would enjoy :D. *Adding it to Goodreads* I like how you combined the series into one review. I might try to do that in the future for older series!

    • It’s really good for previously read series or series that you read all at once like me haha. That way I can just sum up my thoughts for all the books instead of remembering what happened in each book 🙂
