Goodreads 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.
In this incandescent debut, newcomer Amy Plum has created a powerful paranormal mythology with immortal revenants. The Paris setting comes enchantingly alive as a relentless struggle between good and evil takes place in its streets. Rich with romance, atmosphere, and thrills, Die for Me will leave readers breathlessly awaiting its sequel.
DeLibrarie (Del) Review: I was SOOO excited to read this book! I almost picked it up 6 or 7 times, I hesitated only because I knew that I was going to love it... and it's a book 1 of a series. I always struggle with picking those up. BUT I finally picked it up and it sooooo didn't disappoint. I love the idea of Revenants. They are pretty epic, and it was a really fresh idea. They are basically like immortal superheros. I want one. :) I LOVE Jules!!!!! I mean Vincent is all knight in shining armor and all... but Jules has some substance. :) I really liked this book... I don't think I'll ever get sick of paranormal romance. :)
