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.

Favourite Quote: "What's better, to be safe and suffer alone, or to risk pain and actually live?"
I have been wanting to read this book for a while, mainly because of the beautiful cover but the plot sounded really good. After much debate I've decided to rate this book a 4/5 stars!
Let's start with the plot, in the beginning it felt very slow to me, and nothing much happened until over half way through but after that I was really fast pace and action packed! It was a little predictable but that didn't bother me. As for Amy Plum's take on angels, I really liked it, very unique and interesting.
The main character Kate was okay, I thought she was sometimes immature and stubborn but overall she was fine, and Vincent was perfect, a bit too perfect but I easily overlooked that. Side characters were all great, I loved Charlotte, Ambrose and Jules they were awesome.!
The reason that stopped me from giving this book a 4/5 stars was the insta-love. Yes, this book is full of it in my opinion, some people might disagree. I hate insta-love and I couldn't just ignore it so I took of a star.
Overall I would recommend this book to everyone as I really enjoyed and cant wait for the next one! But be aware of the insta-love!

What a fantastic read! Set in picturesque Paris with characters that literally come to life, I couldn't put it down. Kate is extremely likeable and easy to relate to- you want her to find a little happiness from the beginning, and naturally, along comes Vincent and company. With death, revenance, heroism, love and loss this a book that all fans of good YA should read.

This book was exciting and so romantic! Paris!! Ooo la la! I'm one of those romantics that thinks it would be dreamy to visit Paris one day.
Kate was sixteen, almost seventeen, and her sister Georgia was almost eighteen. Their parents died, and they moved from Brooklyn to live with their grandparents in Paris, France! Luckily, from summers of visiting Paris, they already knew French and the area. Plus, outgoing Georgia already had tons of friends. I enjoyed the sister dynamic. It was real. Kate and Georgia loved each other even though they fought sometimes and were complete opposites. I loved how they were always there for each other. Georgia was cute and spunky, a fun side character.
Vincent was nineteen and completely charming. I also liked his guy friends Ambrose and Jules. They were fun and entertaining to have around. Charlotte was a sweetheart, and I hope to see her more in the next book.
Revenants was a unique idea. I really enjoyed finding out all the rules to the revenant world. A revenant was basically someone who could die for others and come back to life. There's more to it of course so you'll have to read to find out. I highly recommend you check this book out. It was great!
This was not a squeaky clean read so be sure to see my content ratings on my blog. cleanteenfiction.blogspot.com

One of the best books I have ever read. If you want a powerful story and sizzling romance: read this.

DIE FOR ME centres around a new concept of paranormal being, the revenants, whose existence is caused by nobility on the one hand and by hatred and anger on the other hand.
We get to meet protagonists Kate and Vicent and their families.Our heroine is very likely, with a modest and caring character, our male protagonist can be described as a very gentle, understanding and sexy Frenchman.
The relationship is really sweet , I am already eager to read more about them and how they are interacting together, always very cautious although there is not really a need to.
I sense a love triangle emerging, which could hold some difficulties since the potential charmeur is also a good friend of Vincent.
Set in Paris, DIE FOR ME takes us on a trip through the atmospheric and lovely capital of France. Amy Plum worked out a fantastic map of locations and settings by wandering the streets and sharing her favourite spots with her readers.
Plum's writing is solid and entertaining. She doesn't bore her readers with dragging dialogues, but keeps them sweet and short. She involves some popular culture references which make DIE FOR ME also a youthful read.
At some points DIE FOR ME was a bit slow paced, there are some moments with very few progress for the plot. But I see that DIE FOR ME as it is the first novel in a series is mostly to explain its concept of revenants and introduce its lovely characters. At the moment I cannot see where this story is heading, but that's exactly what makes it an exciting read.
This novel by debut author Amy Plum is like a box of petit fours filled with sweet romance and Parisian esprit, layered with dark enemies and finished with a tasty fantasy frosting. Hungry? Go get DIE FOR ME and give this new taste a try.
"Move over, Bella and Edward. Plum introduces a world and a story that are sure to intrigue teen readers and will easily attract fans of the Twilight series."--Booklist
