I wish there was only today, just right now, and no forever.
It seems fitting that I fell in love in Paris. Peel back a thin layer of reality and under the city's glamorous surface is a battleground for immortal enemies.
Because with Vincent, reality is an illusion. Handsome, chivalrous, and witty, he's got everything I've ever wanted in a boyfriend...except mortality. But when I chose Vincent, I chose love over reason and safety.
Vincent swore to avoid death--to resist his very nature so that we could be together. But I refuse to stand by and watch him suffer.
I know I'll do whatever it takes--even if it means lying to the people I love--to fight against a fate that is trying to tear us apart.
I have extremely mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I absolutely love Kate and Vincent. I love how tough Kate is even though she's just a human, and how she can hold her own with the revenants. I love how much Vincent loves Kate, how he's trying to deny his "calling" just to be with her, even though it's nearly impossible. Also, I love their "family" of revenants, how much they take care of each other and how much they've come to love, accept, and protect Kate. What I wasn't crazy about, and it pains me to say this, but I felt like almost nothing happened. Like the whole book had a few crucial scenes, but most of it just seemed like "filler" space. Maybe I expected too much from it. I adored the first one, and maybe I just set my hopes too high for this one, but it was a bit disappointing that I didn't like it as much. I really did enjoy it, I just wish there had been a little bit more, but I'll still be anxiously awaiting the sequel!
