Editorial Reviews

Review

"I devoured this lush, mysterious romance, which delivers a refreshingly human heroine alongside a hero truly deserving of the title." --Aprilynne Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Wings series.

“I devoured this lush, mysterious romance, which delivers a refreshingly human heroine alongside a hero truly deserving of the title.” (Aprilynne Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Wings series)

“Action and drama abound. Plum has done an excellent job of setting up the rules for her creations and following them closely. Fans of this genre will have their appetites reignited by this new addition.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“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)

“The lush Parisian setting and gorgeous characters make this an immersing, franchise-ready story.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Plum’s debut is the perfect combo of romance and thrills, with heart-pumping action that will make you jump and love that will make you cry out for joy. You’ll hang on every word, reading late into the night, waiting to find out what’s next.” (Romantic Times)

“Intense romance, action-packed adventure, filled with danger and uncertainty.” (New York Journal of Books)

From the Inside Flap

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.

While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart--as well as my life and my family's--in jeopardy for a chance at love?

I read the book in one sitting because I could not put it down.

The story line was amazing, and I loved how she created something new, unique, and completely different as compared to other paranormal fantasy novels.

There are a million and one paranormal romances out there. What makes a particular book stand out from the crowded genre of overdone supernatural creatures and trite romances? I don't think there is one answer for this. I think it depends upon what each reader looks for in a book. What I do know, is that Die For Me has now leaped to the top of the list of post-Twilight paranormal romances (excepting epic books like Vampire Academy and The Mortal Instruments). If you could write out a formula for what I look for in a paranormal romance book, Die For Me would be sitting next to the equal symbol.

What exactly does Die For Me have going for it?

1. Setting: Oooh...Paris. I've only spent 3 days in Paris, but I definitely want to spend more. The Paris in Die For Me is both mysterious and romantic. You have peaceful cafes (as long as nothing is falling from the sky), parks, the Seine, ornate architecture, dark clubs, dangerous catacombs - the contradiction of dark and light that is Paris.

2. Writing: I like books that are well-written. No surprise there. Who would say anything otherwise? As nice as it is to read books of literary quality, for paranormal romance, I'm looking for a balance. I like books that have richly described settings, characters, and mythology backgrounds, but the descriptions of which don't drag the book down. Die For Me does this perfectly. I got a strong impression of Kate and Vincent's world, but the writing was smooth and easy to read. I could lose myself in the plot instead of focusing on the intricacies of the prose.

3. Pacing: This is a subset of writing, but I thought it merited its own discussion. So often paranormals take forever to get going and then have heart-stopping action that has you flipping pages to get to the end.

We don't need to see the Edward/Bella romance over and over and over again. Seriously. We've already seen it. It was called Twilight. They even made a movie about it. We don't need to see Bella with fallen angels and we don't need to see Bella with zombies. Especially when the fallen angels and zombies are carbon copies of Edward.

Does Vincent have godlike good looks? Check. An aura of danger? Check. Is he a virgin immortal? Check. Has he lived without love for decades? Check. Does he fall in love with our heroine for no apparent reason? Check. Is he a stalker? Check. Doesn't sleep? Check. Has a "family" of other immortals, including a Manic Pixie Dream Girl who becomes the heroine's best friend (Alice/Charlotte), one who resents the heroine and isn't thrilled with their immortal existence (Rosalie/Charles), an older figure who mentors/protects (Carlisle/Jean-Baptiste), an irreverent extrovert (Emmett/Jules), and one who trains the others in battle techniques (Jasper/Gaspard)? Check.

Is Kate an introvert? Check. Has she moved away from home? Check. Does she fall in love with the hero because of his looks? Check. Does she rhapsodize constantly about how gorgeous he is? Check. Does she sound more like a forty year old woman than a sixteen year old girl? Check. Does she have any interests outside reading? In a wild fit of originality, the author does give Kate another hobby: sitting around in museums staring at paintings until she goes into an art trance. Luckily, since that hobby is a Mary Sue author intrusion (Amy Plum is an art historian) and in no way resembles something an actual teenager would do, Kate's still on track to grow up and be Bella.

Kate doesn't understand what Vincent sees in her. Sound familiar?

Format: Hardcover
This book has been compared to Twilight, but even though I do see a few similarities, this story is better in my opinion. Yes, Vincent is "undead" like Edward in Twilight, but he isn't a vampire. He is something totally different and unexpected. I'll let the book explain exactly what Vincent and his kindred are and what they can do. But for this I have to give this book bonus points for creativeness. In a sea of paranormal romances about vampire, werewolves, witches etc., this book is a refreshing change. The setting for this book is Paris, which is also another refreshing change. The characters and the city both came to life for me. This is a romantic story and I felt for Kate and Vincent. My only complaint is that at times the misunderstandings between Kate and Vincent felt a bit contrived and I rolled my eyes a few times. But for the most part this is a romantic, exciting, and oh so intriguing story. If you like young adult, paranormal romances, you will likely enjoy this one.

I picked up this book because I "knew" the author through her personal blog and wanted to support a fellow writer. I'm not part of the demographic targeted for this book (adolescent/young females), but always open to checking out different writing styles so I ordered Mrs. Plum's book. I've also lived in Paris, so I can appreciate a book set there.

Besides the lovely cover, I had a hard time liking this book. As mentioned a thousand times before, it is a direct Twilight rip off, and left me with the feeling of "been there, done that." But many books/movies copy others that came before, so I can't say I was surprised or that this was what completely put me off the book.

What annoyed me the most about this book was the writing style. As another commenter mentioned, I couldn't imagine what Kate would look like based on the very brief, vague description of her. As I was reading, I tended to sub in Kristen Stewart's face (Bella Swan in the Twilight movies) for Kate's because I imagined her to be a carbon copy of this actress.

The writing tended to be super clichéd and amateur. I got the impression that Mrs. Plum was writing what she thought people would want to read (cheesy teen romance movie dialogue, "cool" expressions that young people might use, silly similes like when Lucien calls the girls "Disney princesses"...) It was almost too silly and juvenile to handle and while Kate said silly, juvenile things with Vincent around, she is described to be a wise beyond her years, art-loving introverted girl. Not exactly coherent. What she says and how she acts is always changing and I couldn't seem to get a good grasp on her character.
