Author : Amy Plum
Series : Revenants
Genres : Young Adult, Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Publication : April 2014 by HarperTeen

This is the final book in the Revenants series.
This review will spoil you if you haven’t read the two previous books.

Goodreads’ Synopsis : Kate is devastated. Her boyfriend, Vincent, is a revenant who has waited lifetimes to find her. But once he did their future together was shattered almost immediately. They were betrayed by a trusted ally who killed Vincent and destroyed his body so that he could not be reanimated. Now Vincent is doomed to roam the earth as a spirit. But Kate isn’t willing to accept life without her true love. She’ll risk anything to save him, even as their friend-turned-enemy begins to wage a war to rule over France’s immortals.

It was difficult to put the book down, trust me. You really want to know what will happen next.

I’m not gonna retell the story, of course, but there was a lot of things going on. It’s really action packed, way much more than in the previous book.
I really enjoyed the book but there were some obvious things in it :
– it was really obvious that they would find a way to resurrect Vincent
– Jules being in love with Kate
– Kate becoming a revenant
– The stuff around the Champion, too.

But despite these obvious things, this book is really enjoyable. It’s fast paced, action packed and such a page turner. Plus, there still are witty moments.

There is a lot of characters development in this series.
Kate has become a true leader, one true badass and kickass female character. She knows what she has to do in order to save the world.
Vincent is stronger than in the last book. But it’s obvious that his top priority is to save Kate and her family.
Louis is a numa, a new born one. Violette has chosen him to be her news consort, but all he wants is to help the Bardia.
Bran is more present and has an important role to play.

I really like how some side characters grew more important all long. It was of course centered around Vincent and Kate, but other characters got their chance to shine !

This series is an easy read, nicely written and really enjoyable. I would highly recommend it if you want a light fantasy/sci fi read, with romance inside.

Kate, I want you to know that I awoke the first time I saw you.
