What is this book about?

10551253Question 1. What character has remained the same pot of tea?
I think I would have to say Renee's Grandfather. I feel that he is still quite secretive and doesn't tell Renee anything that is going on. He is also still relatively unsympathetic to Renee's situation - i.e. Parents died, moved across the country, started a new school, discovered the Undead, discovered monitoring, realised her parents were murdered etc. he just doesn't seem to understand her, as a Grandchild, as much as he should.

Question 2. Which character has a whole new flavour?
Dante! He is also being very secretive which is something that we have yet to discover why, really. I feel as he is not such a physically prominent character in Life Eternal and we, like Renee, discover perhaps a more frustrating side to his character.

Question 3. Which characters would have the most awkward conversation whilst drinking tea?
Dante and Noah I would say. Although I feel it would be more awkward from the angle that I don't think either would speak - so I guess it's not really a conversation. Dante would just want to avoid the topic, because he is like that and Noah would be shy as Dante is not only Undead but also has - what he must consider to be an odd relationship with the girl he likes.

Question 4. What book would you prefer to read while drinking tea?
Probably Dead Beautiful as I feel it has more of an element of surprise and suspense as you really do not know what is going to happen and the story takes turns which leaves you second guessing most of the time so you really have to keep reading! Also I found this book had a rather creepy element to it...I am scared relatively easily...

Question 5. Favourite quote!
'How do you measure someone’s life? By the scope of their accomplishments, or the number of people they’ve touched, or by the width of a hand? None of it seemed fair. None of it seemed like enough.'

This book (and series) is fantastic and one of the best I have ever read from this genre and Yvonne Woon is a masterful creator of amazing story lines! I would love to know how she came up with them!! I cannot wait to read the conclusion.
