Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

My Review:

Kate and Georgia move to Paris to live with their grandparents after the death of their parents. Life has been really hard on Kate and she can't seem to move past her parents death. As she's sitting in a Cafe she happens to look up and sees a gorgeous guy looking at her. She recognizes him, but can't seem to figure out from where. Vincent Delacroix is mysteries, intriguing and extremely dangerous. And Kate can't help but open her heart to him even though he might be keeping secrets.  

The setting for this book is something I found very refreshing and interesting. Reading a paranormal novel that is not set in the United States or the UK is something new. Although Paris is a very popular city, I liked how the author used this city to create her background. It was something different which is why I liked this book so much.

The plot itself was fascinating. I haven't read a book about Revenants, so when I read this book I was very intrigued. Revenants are like immortals who come back from the dead. Revenants have a purpose, a destiny. They can either choose to ignore it or embrace it. Either way, it takes a lot of self control and energy to do what a Revenant does. So when Kate finds out secrets about Vincent and how he is connected to the Revenants, she will have to decide whether to keep seeing Vincent or choose another path.
