Die For Me (Revenants, #1) by Amy Plum
Rating: 5 Snowflakes
What a great surprise! Not only is the cover beautiful, but the story within is absolutely wonderful! An amazing fresh YA/Supernatural romance that will capture you and make you crave more!
This story is about Kate Beaumont Mercier, a 16 year old who is struggling with the recent death of her parents. Georgia, Kate’s sister, decides that it would be best for them to move to Paris and live with their late fathers parents. Kate turns into an agoraphobic mess. She spends her time in museums, cinemas and small café’s to avoid being around people. Sitting in one of her chosen café’s, Kate notices someone staring at her from across the terrace and the world froze around her when their eyes met.
As the story unfolds into this beautiful masterpiece that Amy Plum has written, Kate falls for this beautiful, undead-guardian-angel type, Vincent. Kate’s world is about to change and she has to make a decision whether to maintain her self-preservation or go-for-it and move into a world of romance, love and the unknown.
The setting is set in Paris, the City of light. Amy has submitted so much knowledge of landmarks and scenes into this story and it makes you feel as if you are there. The secondary characters are so amazing! I fell in love with the humor they bring and the tight knit friendships they have. It is one big dysfunctional family and you will love what they bring to the story. (One in particular) The writing is easy to follow and flows just right.
This book has so much all rolled into one. I couldn’t put this book down! It is a MUST READ.
