Title: Life Eternal
Series: Dead Beautiful # 2
Genre: Young Adult- Fantasy/Paranormal
Author: Yvonne Wood
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Release Date: January 24, 2012
Book: Netgalley

“Seventeen-year-old Renee Winters must transfer to a Montreal school exclusively for those training to kill the Undead, while unraveling a long-buried secret that may be the key to saving Dante Berlin, her Undead soulmate.

This is another book that I have been dying to read. After reading Dead Beautiful and falling in love with the writing, I knew without a doubt I had to read this book.
Life Eternal picks off where it left off. Renee is back at home dealing with the after math of what happen between her and Dante. This book starts off slow. The author presents in the writing a little of what happen in the last book so if readers were to pick it up, they would understand it some. Though it doesn’t loose any of it’s creativity. Instead, more questions are raised and the real part of the book begins.
The best part of the book, started more in the middle. There, the reader is following along a trail of past secrets, riddles, and the truth to everlasting life. I really enjoyed this part cause it gave me some adventure. Instead of research and drama, the reader can get more connected in searching for the Nine sisters and the meaning behind it. 
The love interest in the book sort of got me angry. Given the fact that I knew where Renee stood, it really grinded my gears when she forgot who she was. She got so caught up with looking for answers that at one point she forgot about Dante and started to see him differently. I loved that the author let the emotions flow so freely within the book. Even though I was angry at Renee, I knew who she was. 

Life Eternal, is a  rewarding epic that  it would make viewers feel that they’re in the story as well. I could do nothing but read faster with each page turn. And the ending, left me wanting more.
I give it 4 BITES!
Happy Reading!

    I’m happy to see you liked it, I didn’t to be honest. I did read it but I had so many issues with it that I didn’t feel satisfied after closing it. Too many loose ends and I missed Dante for the most part of the book.. *sigh* Let’s see how the story goes on and if it will again catch my interest.
