Summary: 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 memories–behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to 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 realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.
I found Amy Plums debut novel to be a very delightful read. And she is most certainty an amazing story teller, one of the bests I’ve read in a while.
I was trapped inside a true love story from start to finish. I was actually shaking towards the end of the book because it was getting so chaotic and I couldn’t believe how things were turning out.
I really liked how Plum choose something a little bit different to write about, Revenants are defiantly something new. Not quite a ghost or zombie, kind of in between. And even though Vincent was significantly older than Kate he still managed to stay current and not have old beliefs, but also be the perfect gentlemen.
One of the only things that I wish was different is how much it felt like ‘Twilight’. Amy Plum even said that she decided to write ‘Die for Me’ after watching the Twilight movies. I know I am not the only one who feels this way. So with that being said, hopefully in the novels to come they start to feel less like Twilight and more like Kate and Vince’s own story.
