Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Title: Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Publish Date: Jan. 24, 2012
Genre: Paranormal

Spoiler Warning! The summary contains huge spoilers to the first book, Dead Beautiful, so highlight to read.
Goodreads Summary: Renée 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 Renée 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 Renée 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.


Renée 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 Renée. Unless they find answers soon, their time together is doomed to be cut short.
When I read Dead Beautiful, the first book in this series, I thought it was a standalone (which it could have been), but I am very happy there is a sequel! Dead Beautiful has some refreshing and original paranormal elements and can’t wait to read this second book. I love the cover of Life Eternal and think it complements Dead Beautiful very well. What are you waiting on?
