Rene 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 Rene 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 Rene 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. 

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

My Review: Rene is another year older. Though, she isn't too thrilled about her day, after all it just brings back what happened last year. Unfortunately, this upcoming year isn't going to be the best. 

Rene has visions, people dying, graveyards, mailboxes, etc. Eventually Rene comes to realize it's not her visions, but Dante's. What she didn't expect, was the visions to be real. In the beginning Rene will know of loss once again. The school she knows will be for the Undead and she will have to go to the sister school for Monitors.

It takes Rene a bit to get used to her new school, but soon she'll make friends who will be a big help to her along the way. Eventually she finally gets to see Dante again. Meeting up with him will be a little harder this time, after all there are monitors everywhere. 

The story picks up fast when Rene hears of the nine sisters and the ability to defy death. She is determined to find this sister who defy death. After a lot of work, help of her friends, Rene has done it. She has found the secret. But before she can do anything, Dante sweeps in and grabs her to safety. 

The ending was such a cliff hanger! I can't wait to dive into the next book!
