Review - Die for Me by Amy Plum

Die for Me (Revenants, #1)Release Date: May 11th 2011
Buy it: Amazon
Add it: Goodreads

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 our 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 no where and swept me off my feet. Just kike that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again.

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 everyday. 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?

A stunning novel of love, death and the lengths we go to for love.

At first I thought Die for Me was going to be another girl meets boy and she finds out he's a vampire but it wasn't that kind of paranormal twist and that's what makes Amy Plum's Die for Me amazing, it was captivating.

The pace of the book was perfect and it kept me reading without wanting to put it down for a day or two before continuing to read it and the description of Paris and its historical settings were great it made a change from the usual American settings. The characters were well written, what I love about Kate is that she doesn't just dive right in she thinks things through first and then makes her decision.

Kate isn't your typical heroine she is smart and stronger than I first give her credit for and I am looking forward to seeing Kate's character grow through out the series. Vincent is mysterious and sexy, everything a girl could ever want but there is more to Vincent than meets the eye. 

Vincent has a deadly secret which at first you expect him to be a vampire but it turns out its a lot more deadly than that. This secret isn't supposed to be shared with anyone but Vincent ends up having to tell Kate who he really is and what he is when Kate witnesses something terrible.

There are so many romantic scenes between Kate and Vincent which makes it a great romantic novel, they understand each other more than anyone else understands them. I am really hoping that the sequel lives up to this novel.
