Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.

Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.


Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.

While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

The stunning cover and enticing premise was the main reason why I wanted to read this book. Once I opened the book and started reading, I knew I was going to love it. The Paris setting was enough to keep my interest. I have always had a love for Paris(even though I've never been...Yet!). Amy Plum captured the enchanting setting of France. Describing the beautiful streets, museums and cafes, she pulled me in to Kate's world and didn't let me go.

Character cast played a huge part in why I enjoyed this book so much. Kate was a strong willed character. She had to deal with the tragic death of both her parents, and then moving to Paris, leaving her friends behind. I bonded with Kate almost immediately. Vincent was another "wow" factor of this book. He was a wonderful character to read. The character cast provided a lot of entertainment throughout the entire book.

The writing style was simple, and flowed smoothly. Amy Plum did a beautiful job at pacing the story. There are a lot of Paranormal books out there but the author delivered an original, unique twist to the genre, offering a compelling read! I thought this was a fantastic introduction to a series. I can't wait to get my hands on book two!

  5. I loved this book. The characters were the highlight. Kate and Vincent were great, but I most love Vincent's revenant "family."
