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 Ren
e 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.
ée 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.

Looking through the reviews on GoodReads, I feel like I'm the only person that didn't enjoy this book. I read this hoping that it would be better than the first, but really, it wasn't any better, and that's really disappointing.

Renee is still swooning over Dante, because what else do you do when it's a super hawt dead guy? *Cough* Twilight *cough*. Renee is still hung up over him even though she's been sent to a new boarding school and has to sneak out to see him. And then she meets Noah.

Noah, as I recall, is in some sort of relationship with Clementine, who is like the queen bee of the school. Renee and Noah sort of have this thing, even though they're both in relationships with other people. Like, I don't even know, dude.

I don't remember a whole lot, due to the fact that I read this over a year and a half ago, and because I didn't really care about it. So this review is pretty short.

At the end, some one kind of important dies, and Renee doesn't really seem to care even though she kind of got that person into the situation.

Still annoying.

Still creepy. And dead.

He seemed OK.

Queen bee, didn't care too much for her.

Overall, this book was just as disappointing, however, I'm going to read the third book pretty soon so I can just finish this trilogy.
