Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum

Title: Die for Me

Author: Amy Plum

Publisher: Atom

Blurb (from Goodreads): In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life -- and memoires -- behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way tp survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant -- an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries - old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realises that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.

What I thought: I've been meaning to get this book for years, and so when I saw it on sale for four euro I just had to get it. I was absolutely enchanted by this book. I loved it. I loved how Amy Plum wrote about Paris, which is one of my favourite cities to read about. The romance had me swooning from start to finish.

Our female protagonist, Kate Mercier, felt very real. She's a girl you could know in real life. I could identify with her personality and her love of books. I loved how she reacted like a normal person would to the challenges she came up against.

I really liked our male protagonist, Vincent. I feel that he was very well written. He's very alluring and sweet and kind, yet mysterious and I wanted to find out more about him and the secrets he was hiding.

The plotline of this book is very good. The book is very well paced. The information about the revenants is spaced out throughout the book so there aren't any information dumps.  I  hadn't  actually  read  a  "zombie"  book  before,  so  that  was  really  interesting.

The romance is to die for. I'm happy to say that there isn't any insta - love. It's very well written and I was just... and then I just.... Let me tell you, the feels in this book are unreal.

I'm really excited to continue on with the series. Beyond excited actually. I love it!

Rating: 10/10
