Die For Me - Amy Plum

Posted by on April 24, 2011

Synopsis: My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.

Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.

Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.

While I’m fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family’s—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

Review: Before I go into my review, I just want to say how much I absolutely loved this cover! Isn’t it gorgeous? It caught my eye that’s for sure, and suckered me into reading this book (which was a good thing)!

This book is set in beautiful France. Kate and her sister Georgia’s parents died leaving them orphans, so they moved from the USA to France to live with their grandparents.

I love Kate’s character. For me, she was easy to relate to in the sense that she was an introvert, she loves nothing more than reading in a cafe, and she’s written in a way you can believe. She is so depressed and overcome with grief at the start and then we start to see this girl emerge who is strong and her guard is falling…

It is in France that Kate meets a tall handsome man - Vincent. But he isn’t all he seems. He is a Revenant - which to tell you what that is I think would be spoiling the fun of finding out, so I am being intentionally vague here! Vincent is such an interesting character. He appears suave and confident, but he is so vulnerable to Kate and would do anything for her. I am in love with this character!

This story starts off explaining the situation the girls find themselves in, and takes the time to set the mood. It’s not a slow start, because the overall story is important. It’s told right though. The story builds and builds into this crescendo finish where we are given a major action scene (which I was so absorbed in by the way!).

Happy to see that this is the first book in the Revenants Series, and it leaves on a note where you know we’re going to be seeing more of Kate and Vincent and I am so looking forward to that! Highly recommend this book.
