What the Back of the Book Says: Following an all-out battle with the walking Dead, the Spirit Hunters have fled Philadelphia, leaving Eleanor alone to cope with the devastating aftermoath. But there's more trouble ahead - the evil necromancer Marcus has returned, and his diabolical advances have Eleanor escaping to Paris to seek the help of Joseph, Jie, and the infuriatingly handsome Daniel once again. When she arrives, however, she finds a whole new darkness lurking in this City of Light. As harrowing events unfold, Eleanor is forced to make a deadly decision that will mean life or death for everyone.
My Thoughts: I haven't gotten to read book 1 yet, but I've got plenty of time to do that before this Summer 2013 release. I think the cover of this book is so freaking amazing that I want it just for the cover art! That dress is just incredible, and I love the background - the colors used in the clock are so perfect and complement the dress wonderfully. I find the placement and font of the title great as well, it's simple yet has an air of mystery around it that fits perfectly with the art.
