  Booklist Review

Move over, Bella and Edward. Zombies replace vampires in this well-crafted paranormal romance. After the tragic death of their parents, Kate and her older sister, Georgia, move to Paris. Georgia fits into the party scene immediately, but Kate continues to grieve and brood until she meets the dashingly handsome Vincent. Although their attraction is immediate and intense, Kate is uneasy, even wary. Through a narrative that alternates between romance and violence, Kate and the reader are introduced not only to contemporary Paris but to a war-torn netherworld populated by zombies who save people from death and other beings who plot to kill them. In her debut novel, Plum deftly navigates the real world and the fantastical. Her characters are authentic, and their romances are believable. Plum introduces a world and a story that are sure to intrigue teen readers and will easily attract fans of the Twilight series.--Bradburn, Frances Copyright 2010 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

Boy meets Girl. Boy turns out to have a deepnay, otherworldlyconnection to Girl despite being the loneliest member of a family of immortal, sexy, good-hearted monsters.Newly-orphaned Brooklynite Kate Mercier is now living in Paris with her grandparents and sister. She's grateful for anything that breaks the constant tyranny of her depression, even the weird obsession she's developing with Vincent, a hot Parisian she's seen in her favorite caf. Vincent is equally obsessed with Kate, but after a few dates his secret is revealed: Vincent is a revenant, driven by some mystical force to give his life to save others again and again, constantly reborn as an 18 year old with rippling "rock-hard abdominal muscles." Along with his revenant family (one father figure, several extremely sexy pseudo-brothers and a teenage girl to be Kate's friend), he rescues at-risk Parisians while fighting off the revenant's evil counterparts among the undead. Kate and Vincent are, of course, drawn to each other, miserable with despair when apart. When they are together, it takes all Vincent's willpower not to molest his beloved; readers of Twilight and its ilk know the drill. But wait! Evil is afoot, and perhaps it will spice up their love life!Those obsessed with paranormals won't dislike anything here, but everyone else should give it a miss.
