Through the book, both of them are going in different paths to find a solution to their problem with different results. While on the Numa front, the Revenants welcome new ones into the house in hopes that their help with stop the danger before it happens. Though these two are the biggest issues of the book, other events happen adding to the story a touch of normalcy or as normal as revenants' lives can be.
I must say that Amy Plum as a way with characters that brings some much life to this story. The love story between Kate and Vincent never bores me and never makes me feel like I had enough; actually, I'm always hoping to hear more about them. Kate and Vincent complete one another. Where one lacks of something, they other makes up for it. Kate has opened up more in this book and looks happy despise the complications and I see strength in her that she didn't possess in the first book. Vincent is always the same, but the love he carries for Kate seems to give him a new strength.
And what can I say about Jules? I just love the guy though I feel something is up with him. Nothing bad, I just feel where Kate is concern, Jules is hiding something. Love? Maybe, but I'm not sure. But Kate and Jules' friendship is something I love to read. They're just so easy-going with each other and Jules' loyalty is like no other whether its towards Vincent, Kate or the other revenants.
And Georgia.... what's not to love about Georgia? She's the opposite of Kate, but her outgoing personality and her witty comments just adds to the story. I'd love to see her actually settle down with one guy and I have one in mind, but I guess if it's to happen, I'll have to wait in the third installment.
And I could go on and on about the characters. From Ambrose to Jean-Baptiste, from Charlotte to Genevieve, they all bring their own light into the story. I just wished we read more about them. I, for one, would love to have some novellas written about them in a near future *hints hints*.
Also, reading this book makes me want to visit Paris even more. The description of the scenery just makes me dream of seeing this with my own eyes.
Overall, I fell in love all over again with the series and I'm looking forward for the next book. I think Amy Plum had this brilliant idea and wrote it brilliantly. And I know my review is kind of vague, but I just do not want to say something that might spoil you the book. All I can say is read this book, it's worth it.(less)

J'ai aimé l'approche du sujet de l'homosexualité dans ce livre et les témoignages ajoutés à l'histoire de Jasmin m'ont bouleversé. Ce livre n'est pas une histoire pour nous détendre, mais bien un livre pour nous faire réagir à un sujet encore tabou aujourd'hui. J'ai encore de la difficulté à croire que des gens peuvent être encore aussi cruel envers d'autres personnes.
Je crois que c'est un bon livre à faire lire à des jeunes autant qu'à des adultes pour aider à devenir plus ouverts d'esprit.(less)
