Series: Dead Beautiful, Book 3
My Rating: 5 Stars
Yvonne Woon’s Dead Beautiful series is one of those series that really deserves more exposure and praise. It’s unique and original and frankly I couldn’t put these books down. While this book review only covers Love Reborn, the 3rd and final book in the series, the other two books are delightfully enticing just as this book was. Love Reborn, is a solid conclusion to this series and didn’t let me down in the slightest.
Renee and Dante share a soul, one that can’t sustain them both. They must find an answer to their problem before time runs out. Armed with a chest that contains the secret to eternal life, if they can follow the clues it contains. But their road is filled with danger because they are being hunted by both the Liberum and the Monitors. When they both start receiving letters from a mysterious person who calls himself Monsieur, which seems to assist them in their quest all they can do is follow Monsieur’s instructions and hope for the best.
I loved this series. It’s one of those series that has it all, romance, mystery, action, and most of all, originality. Woon’s original take on the zombie genre is refreshing, intriguing and addictive. She does an exceptional job of developing her world and basing it in the world of here and now. Her characters are well developed and their stories are entwined enough to keep the reader guessing what will happen next. Renee and Dante are the central characters of the story, but there are so many other wonderful supporting characters throughout the series that I truly wanted the best for many of them.
The conclusion to this series was riveting. I wasn’t sure until the very last page how it was going to workout for all the characters. Woon’s ability to keep the reader in suspense is astounding. I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys the YA genre. Adults will enjoy this as much as a younger audience. Be sure to check it out if you are looking for a new series to read. You won’t be disappointed with this one.
