Review: A book to DIE for

Praise for Die for Me (By Amy Plum)

As if dealing with the death of your parents isn’t enough, Kate Mercier’s future changes forever when her older sister decides that they should leave their home state of New York, fly to Paris, and move in with their grandparents. Simple. Grieving from her sudden and tragic loss, Kate secludes and immerses herself in the alternate world that books and art provide. Then she sees Vincent.

From the moment they lock eyes this Tall, Dark, and oh so Handsome Frenchman brings Kate back to life. As things heat up Kate learns the truth, Vincent is more than he appears. He’s a revenant, and it is his job to give his life to save others from death. Over and over again. On top of the fact that she might have to watch her (maybe) boyfriend die, she also has to deal with the fact that he is immortal while she, is not. Throw in a pack of evil revenants that will stop at nothing to kill everyone in their path and you have a decidedly memorable story. This book will wrap its hands around your heart and squeeze leaving you breathless as you turn the pages. Well written and painfully romantic this is a perfect book to curl up with on a cold winter day.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 hearts!

  2. I loved Die for Me. Great review! I was hesitant to read any zombie type books until this one. I also loved the Paris setting.

  17. i read this one last year and obviosuly didn't like it that much, I thought the romance was a little weird but I did love Vincent. I still can't wait to read the sequel!

  18. i read this book and loved it a lot..:)
    thanks for the review...

  19. I've heard a little of this book and whenever I think of revenants, I think of rotting kick butt zombies. I think the genre of "love goes beyond the grave" thing is a little over done, but if I need to read something, I think I might pick this one up.

  22. Thank you for the review. I am one of the few who has yet to pick up this series, although, the book covers are insanely beautiful and enticing. That being said, I absolutely love how simple and straight-forward your review is. If the words "This book will wrap its hands around your heart and squeeze leaving you breathless as you turn the pages." don't convince a reader to read this book, nothing will! :)

  23. DIE FOR ME and UNTIL I DIE were both a breath of fresh air and like a lot of people said it was Twilight personified but its safe to say that IT DEFINITELY IS NOT....

  24. I'm glad to know that you liked it! I heard about it last year but I wasn't entirely convinced that it was my kind of book... now I finally picked the ebook up for $1.99 so I'm going to try and read it soon because Until I Die is coming out!
