Read in August, 2011

Renée is back living with her grandfather after school is over. The events that happened at the end of the school year have bought her a summer of therapy. Now, she is having nightmares that are unusual for a monitor (one who can sense the undead.) She doesn’t tell anyone about the nightmares because she thinks that they are unreal and insignificant, until a member of the faculty of her school dies which is congruent with the dream she had. Gottfried Academy is closed to students and only remains open to the undead. Because of this, she attends Lycée St. Clement Academy which is located in Montreal, Canada. This is a school solely for monitors. Renée initially has reservations on attending the school because she wonders how she will see her undead boyfriend and soul mate, Dante.

At Lycée St. Clement Academy, she learns how to become a better monitor. She also is finding it harder to be separated from Dante. She sees him occasionally and learns that he is working on finding an answer to how she and Dante can survive with only one soul as their time is running out. She also learns about the Nine Sisters, their secret and The Liberum. While trying to figure those three things out, she has episodes where she loses consciousness and has dreams that will help her find what she is seeking.

Things I Liked:
As always, Woon is very descriptive. You learn things in this book which will help explain the past events. I love the way that she expands on Renée’s and Dante’s relationship and add new characters into the mix. Some of the characters were in the first book and you are just not getting to see them more in the writing.

Things I didn’t like:
Having to wait for the next book in this series to figure out what is going to happen, but that is always the case in multiple book series.
