Summary: 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. (Goodreads)


My Thoughts: I did judge this book to its cover. It has a beautiful cover and has a good story in it. This book is about zombies set in Paris. When I saw the word Paris, I had the impression that our female protagonist Kate is more inclined towards the arts. She reads in cafes and prefers the museums to shopping. I’m just making a smart guess since she spends most of her time appreciating the arts. And yes, our leads met each other in a fleeting moment and they eye candied each other. Not to typical Twilight. And there wasn’t insa-love, so I really enjoyed this book. So the good zombies are called Revenants and the bad are called Numas. The Revenants are suppose to save people who weren’t supposed to die, which means unnatural death and they die in the place of these people and after three days they come back to life. However, the Numas are the ones killing innocent people and so these two are sworn enemies like Vampires and Werewolves.

Things I liked:
1. The breakup between Kate and Vincent made them seem like a normal couple. Although Vincent is a zombie, dosen’t mean he can’t lead a normal live. I mean where there is a relationship, there are bound to be breakups.  

2. How romantic Vincent. He’s the kind of boys you expect to see in France. Bringing you  to restaurants and having a candle-lit dinner. Rowing the boat on the river with the Eiffel Tower in a distance. 

3. How cool her grandparents were. Seems like they know the term YOLO. Kate’s grandmother encourages her to be happy and encouraged Kate to spend the night at Vincent’s. 

Of Course there are many more. There are parts I disliked but they are insignificant and I can’t remember them. 

Ratings: 4.5/5 stars
