Title: Die For Me
Series: Die For Me, #1
Author: Amy Plum
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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.

Die For Me was a very different kind of paranormal romance. It was like a mix between  ghosts and vampires, with out the blood sucking. 

It starts with Kate, and her sister moving in with their grandparents in Paris because their parents died. Kate is taking it really hard just going through the motions, not really living, until she meets Vincent. 

The thing is Vincent is a little bit different. He and his family have a lot of secrets that they do not wish to get out, but Kate ends up finding out things about them, so the trust her with the secrets.

I thought this book was okay overall. I just couldn't connect with the characters at all. I felt like Kate was  kind of a coward when it came to her relationship with Vincent, and I didn't like the way she handled things with him either. Then I really couldn't understand some of the things Vincent did either. So again overall this book was okay, and I probably won't continue the series.
