Die for Me Paperback
by Amy Plum
Part of the Die for Me series
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.

Review by wyvernfriend
My suspension of disbelief was broken a little by native Parisians staying in Paris during August (particularly when they have a country home) or that the annual migration wouldn't rate a minor mention in the story. Most of the story takes place during the summer and autumn. After their parents die Georgia and her younger sister, Katya move to be with their grandparents in Paris. They hope that this break from their old life will help them get on with their lives in the face of the huge loss life has dealt them. Little do they know what is going to happen, that this is sgoing to bring them into contact with revenants, a zombie type of undead, good guys who try to ensure that people survive accidents and died themselves for someone else. Vincent has been grieving his girlfriend for many years until Katya comes into his life. The two of them become consumed by the relationship (co-dependence alarms ring in my head) however the two of them are also in trouble from the bad guys.It's an interesting world and concept and I did enjoy the read but there were bits that made me stop and wonder if this was a healthy relationship.

3.5 stars<br/><br/>Sisters Kate and Georgia has lost their parents in a car accident and they move to Paris to live with their grandparents. Kate has hard time moving on and spends her days mostly alone reading books. Her sister tries to drown her sorrow with parties and dancing. <br/>Kate starts to spend at at a cafe reading and that’s where she meets Vincent, who isn’t what he seems. Their feelings starts to grow but when Kate starts to learn more about Vincent, she starts to have second thoughts and to think if it’s safe to be together.<br/><br/>When I first heared about this book the first thing I noticed was that it’s set in Paris. It really doesn’t take much to get me interested and I’m happy to say I enjoyed it! I liked the idea of Revenants. Their basically people who die intead of others and they come back to life. They spend the rest of their life trying to safe people and after they die they always come back to life. They do age but after dying they come back at the age they died the first time. <br/><br/>Vincent was so adorable and nicely romantic. I’m not usually big fan of that type of men but I liked him. And he really knows how to handle a sword! Loved those scenes.<br/>Sure there were moments where Kate just can’t take eyes from him because he’s just so gorgeous but gladly she has brains too. And she doesn’t run head over heels in love but thinks is it safe and how it will affect her family.<br/><br/>I also loved the relationship between the sisters. They’re always been close but after their parents death their been even closer and are really friends. There was great cast of supporting characters and I loved Jules. I wish there would have been more of him!<br/><br/>Great debut from Plum and I’m waiting for the next book!
