There is some death in this one, some pretty ugly deaths. There is very mild romance and not much language. There are positive influences, however some of the situations the girls put themselves in are pretty risky.
I enjoyed this book. I really liked how this book had a new twist. The revenants were an interesting concept. I now believe any fantasy creature can be spun in either a positive or negative light. Evil angels and now life saving zombies. If you are looking for your typical zombie, parasitic eating and killing people type, this is not your kind of book. It is a typical ya romance in that you find a girl with little to no self confidence completely struck by this "god-like" boy who falls for said girl. I did like how Vincent didn't have to treat her like trash for some reason or another, and although she was hurt, it wasn't by any of his choosing. There was some stalking type romance involved. This amuses me because it's become pretty big in ya and I guess I'm not in the norm but that doesn't strike me as romantic, more creepy. I enjoyed the side characters. The plot was pretty predictable but it didn't bother me so much I skipped ahead or stopped reading. I've never been to Paris, so the fact it was set there didn't do anything for me positively or negatively. I liked how the ending closed up but there were still some unanswered questions that want me to continue on. I was pleasantly surprised that there were positive influences all around. (Not sure what was up with granny giving the go-ahead on the sleepover though, it didn't seem to really fit.) Not too much romance and no language. Will continue to the next.
