  Booklist Review

Kate and Vincent return in the second of Plum's Revenant Trilogy (following Die for Me, 2011), this time with both lovers searching for a solution to Vincent's compulsion to die for humans in order to infuse himself with new energy for his own survival. As Vincent gets weaker through Violette's secret scheme, Kate gets closer to uncovering an ancient prophecy that holds answers. This novel has a lower-key story line than Die for Me, yet it's no less compelling. Beware! The ending will frustrate readers immensely, but it sets the stage for the final saga.--Bradburn, Frances Copyright 2010 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

Another human-undead romance produces some good entertainment in this second of a trilogy involving "revenants" in Paris. These undead creatures have become mostly immortal by sacrificing their own lives to save others. Human Kate and revenant Vincent fell in love in the first book; here they fight the numa, similar but evil undead who plot to kill revenants. Alas, it actually looks like it's fairly easy to kill revenants, despite their "immortality," a bit of a flaw in the book's premise. Kate lives with her French grandparents but spends much time training for combat with the revenants, who have accepted her. She knows that she will age and die as Vincent stays young, and the two seek different ways to overcome that difficulty. Worse, it seems that a spy has infiltrated the revenant community. Plum handles the intrigue and builds tension, ending with a major cliffhanger that should compel readers to the final book in the trilogy. The suspense takes precedence over the romance as Kate follows clues, first to find more information on revenants and then to uncover the spy in their midst. Several of the characters stand out as interesting individuals, enhancing the entertainment value in the story, along with a few good action scenes. Good thrills and intrigue.
