Life Eternal (Dead Beautiful #2) by @yvonnewoon #BookReview

 
 
Ren e 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 Ren e 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. 

Ren e 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 Ren e. Unless they find answers soon, their time together is doomed to be cut short.

Repost from Aug. 2011

I found myself fascinated. This story has mystery and unexpected twists. There were moments in the book where I realized I was crying. It really swept me up and pull me in.

My heart went out to Renee. She’s lost so much and too many people she loves. It reminded me a little of my life In the past I have lost so many people and animals.

There is so much to this book. I revived this book from NETGALLEY andI haven’t read the 1st book, Dead Beautiful; but the author does a fabulous job of filling in bits and pieces of the story so I didn't feel lost and out of sorts.

The only thing that I didn't like was the end. It left us with a massive cliff hanger So I need to get my hands on the first one so I can read that and it can keep me company while I'm waiting for the third one.
