Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon

Wednesday, January 18, 2012
Renée Winters has changed. When she looks in the mirror, a beautiful girl with an older, sadder face stares back. Her condition has doctors mystified, but Renée can never reveal the truth: she died last May, and was brought back to life by the kiss of her Undead soul mate, Dante Berlin.

Now, her separation from Dante becomes almost unbearable. His second life is close to an end, and each passing day means one less that she will spend with the boy who shares her soul.

Just when Renée has almost given up hope, she learns of the Nine Sisters—brilliant scholars who, according to legend, found a way to cheat death. She can’t shake the feeling that they are somehow connected to her dreams, strange visions that hint at a discovery so powerful, and so dangerous, that some will stop at nothing to protect it.

Renée thought she knew the truth about life and death. But there is a secret woven through history that holds the only hope for Dante and Renée. Unless they find answers soon, their time together is doomed to be cut short.

Goodreads Summary

Renee is desperately searching for answers that may save Dante and keep their relationship alive.  This isn't that easy of a task to take on as Renee is sent to a new school and meets Noah, an interesting, handsome, normal guy.  Noah makes everything even more confusing for Renee, but she is still determinedly devoted to Dante.  Their sweet relationship consumes most of the book even when the two are apart.

The reader meets many new characters; some will make the reader laugh, others will make the reader worry, and some the reader has to decide for him/herself upon.  Renee remains a great main character.  She is intelligent, strong, and determined.  Dante is as swoon-worthy as ever.  The reader will be impressed by his love for Renee.  Noah adds a wrench in to their relationship, however, as the reader may be able to picture him with Renee as well.

The events were fast-paced for the most part.  The plot was consistent, Renee striving to find answers to her strange predicament.  There are a few small subplots that will help capture the readers' attention as well.  This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.

    Eeee! I loved Dead Beautiful when I read it last year, and I've been dying to read Life Eternal ever since the calendars changed to 2012. It's release date is so close! I can't wait =]

  1. I have a feeling you will enjoy this one :)

  1. Dead Beautiful was, in my opinion, a highly underrated book. I loved it so much. I haven't read Life Eternal yet, but it sounds like I will love it too. But I am not liking the addition of a new love interest....
