I didn't mean to pick up this book, but the cover was just too stunning for me to pass it up. Our main character Kate, is our typical quiet girl who prefers to stay indoors. Her grandparents and sister, Georgia forces her to branch out into the city. Instead of Kate being home all the time, she spends most of her time at a cafe where she meets eye with Vincent. If I could choose one word to describe him, it would be gentleman. He's kind and caring, but sometimes, he can come off as a little too perfect. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I prefer characters to have some flaws.
With the concept of revenants, I think the author did a splendid job on creating her own twist with zombies. Revenants are basically zombies - the walking dead. I don't want to go into further detail but I suggest you read this but it is quite interesting and original.
I didn't experience that many problems with this book except for Kate's sister, Georgia and the romance. In the book, it mentioned Georgia would literally assign people to accompany her sister, Kate. Bossy much? And as for the romance, I think it was a little too much. If she brought it down by a notch and replaced with more action scenes, I would've enjoyed it more.
With a dreamy place setting, mysterious boys and a unique take on zombies, I would highly recommend this book to those who are searching for a fairly good paranormal romance.
