Pub Date: 24 Feb 2011

Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon is a darkly romantic YA fiction. The story is refreshing and original and I like how the author portrayed the emotions of the characters. It can get a tad creepy at times in my opinion, but it’s bearable, considering that this is also a paranormal fiction.
I can’t wait for the next instalment of this series and I hope for more stories from the author. I highly recommends this book to teenagers who wants an excellent paranormal romance story.
I rate this book 4 out of 5. I received an ARC of this book from Disney-Hyperion via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book.
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.
