Die For Me by Amy Plum

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.

This was an odd book, so odd that I'm not quite sure I enjoyed it. The topis is unusual and uncomfortable and confusing to read about. It's hard to keep up with and it's just SO odd (did I mention that?).

Kate is a weak character. She is pig-headed and scared of a lot of crap. And then there's Vincent. Vincent is what makes this book odd. Let's just say he is not of us normal living people. Sure he has the charm of a regular Parisian and he likes art, books, and stuff but he's sketchy, and I don't trust him. May I say "Let the girls swoon" in a sarcastic tone.

In the end, this book wasn't for me and I wouldn't recommend it because it's almost a waste of time. If your curiosity gives way, then fine, you might like it. Some people do, just not me.  Plot: 2/5 stars   Cover: 4/5 stars   -Katie
