You can read the Goodreads summary here.  This review may contain spoilers from Die for Me.

Kate and Vincent are so in love, but they still have to come to terms with the fact that Kate is human and Vincent is a revenant.   Vincent thinks he can resist the urge to die so they can age together and whats more, he thinks he has a solution to solve just that problem.  But that solution leaves him increasingly weakened and that worries Kate and their friends.

I loved that Until I Die brought us right back to the world of the revenants in beautiful France and that it started out with a very lavish party.  I really did miss this series while I was waiting to get my hands on this book.  Vincent and Kate face a pretty typical YA paranormal problem in this installment - they want to be together but they know they can't be together forever.  Oh, and the revenants have some enemies that are getting closer and closer.  Until I Die was fast paced like Die for Me, but I did feel there were couple points in the middle of the novel that moved too slow or lacked action.

That is, until the end of the novel!  Holy plot twist, Batman!  I totally didn't see that coming!  It was really two plot twists, I think, because the very ending of the book threw me for a loop as well.  We'll have to see how it wraps up in the third book, If I Should Die, due out May 7th.

Four stars!  I really enjoyed getting back into this world Amy Plum has created and even though I felt some parts lacked or lagged, the surprise ending absolutely made up for it plus some.  If you haven't started this unique series about revenants yet, you should definitely give it a look if you love paranormals.

  5. This is one of two books that I read yesterday.. and I just read Die For Me a couple of days ago.. I absolutely loved both of them as well. Maybe I've read too many books this week but I knew who was working against them from pretty much the beginning, I think she made it too obvious. Great review though!! :)
