Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads

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.

I really enjoyed this book. It isn't anything ground-breaking, but that's not something that really bothers me.

Kate was a nice main character. She's a pretty normal girl which makes her easy to relate to. Her situation could cause her to be super moody or angsty, but she isn't. Yeah, she has her moments, but she's pretty well-adjusted. Oh, and I like that she and her sister have a believable, but good relationship.

Initially, I thought Vincent would be the dark and dreary bad boy you usually see in paranormal books. He does have parts of that, but he's actually very kind and generous. And I really like the little found family he has.

The suprise little gems are Kate's grandparents. They are so freaking adorable and I love couples who still love each other after being together for so long.

Ms. Plum did a good job of giving information about the Revenants so I was satisfied, but also left some mystery. I'm not sure what will happen in the rest of the series based on how this ended, but I do want to know more. I do plan on continuing to read this series eventually.

Thanks for reading!
