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.

This story was intoxicating. I felt like I was just breathing the words in. I was transfixed and obsessed and I just couldn’t stop reading.

The story setting was beautiful. Paris. Who doesn’t love Paris? It was just the perfect setting for this story. It felt like the story was just pulled together by this city.

Kate is the main character and I wasn’t completely sure what I thought about her. When going into this book I thought she was going to be the rule-breaking type person and that’s what shocked me but I think that Amy Plum made a smart move here. The fact that Kate wasn’t this outgoing character just made her actions and choices and the story just better and I liked that.

I loved the background to the story, the history of what the people were. It wasn’t your typical witch and vampire story and that’s what drew me in. The idea of what these characters were was completely refreshing. I loved the idea of it all. How you became one and the sacrifices it was just brilliant.

I found this book to be a quick read and I liked that because it just meant that I enjoyed the story more.
