Die for Me by Amy Plum


Summary: 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.

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?


Review: I enjoyed this book greatly. I didn't relate to Kate or Georgia or Charlotte very much, but I liked them all which was nice. I liked Vincent too. He had a few moments where I felt like he was a bit of a creep, but overall he was a very desirable guy. Charles I worry about. Anyone who has read the book will probably understand why. It's sad because of ALL of the other characters, Charles is the one that reminded me of someone I know in real life. Jules is probably my favorite. He's makes me smile every time I see his name on a page. He's such a great character.

The story was interesting and well done in my opinion. It's about these weird guardian angel things. Actually, they aren't really angels. They're like angel/ghost/zombie things. Yeah. That sums it up I suppose. Their purpose in life is something I haven't heard of before and I like the fresh idea it brings to the YA world. The story was lovely and there was one part regarding Kate/Vincent I especially liked even though it wasn't good for the characters. I don't want to make this a spoilery review so I'm not going to say anymore, but it happens about mid-way through the book I think and it was surprising to be honest. Not something you see in many YA romances. I'm excited to see Paris as a setting. I've never been to Paris, but reading this book and seeing the adventures Kate and Vincent have makes me want to go. I think my only real issue of this book was there didn't seem to be a lot going on in terms of action. I wish the bad guys were more of a point in the story, but the rest of the book was good enough so I didn't think much of it while I was reading. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new Paranormal story.
