Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Plum’s Revenant trilogy comes to an end, but not without suspense, bloodshed, a horrific zombie war, death, reanimation, and romance. Kate sheds her high-school facade to concentrate on her relationship with the bardia and their war against the numa. But first she must help find a way to rescue Vincent’s spirit from the evil Violette, who has tricked him, killed him, and burned his body. Her challenge is to find the funeral urn called a thymiaterion, interpret its seven symbols, and thus unlock the ancient secret to his reembodiment all before Violette absorbs his power permanently. Can she do it? Find out in this swash-buckling final episode with plot twists and unexpected revelations. Grades 8-11. --Frances Bradburn


PRAISE FOR IF I SHOULD DIE: “[An] exciting, bittersweet conclusion. Tension, danger, and romantic yearning are palpable. The world-building is solid and unique. Recommend to teens who enjoyed Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series.” (School Library Journal)

“Plenty of well-paced tension. The author keeps the narrative moving along at a sprightly pace and handles the suspense well.” (Kirkus)

“This last book does not disappoint. The author strikes a good balance between the romance and the action of the story. If I Should Die is well plotted with a final twist that will keep readers on their toes.” (New York Journal of Books)

“A swashbuckling final episode with plot twists and unexpected revelations.” (ALA Booklist)

“There is plenty of romance, danger, and unpredictable turns against a backdrop of Paris. Those looking for something beyond the Twilight series will enjoy these fast reads about immortals.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

PRAISE FOR UNTIL I DIE:“A fast-moving tale of star-crossed lovers.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“Plum handles the intrigue and builds tension, ending with a major cliffhanger that should compel readers to the final book in the trilogy.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The historical elements and the magic evoked by the Parisian setting work to paint a full landscape that has a deep otherworldly connection while remaining entirely ordinary in the very best way. The story’s twists and turns are well paced and will have readers captivated.” (School Library Journal)

PRAISE FOR DIE FOR ME: “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.” (ALA Booklist)

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

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

Loved all the books in the series and can't wait for the last book to come out.

The story was a bit predictable though and the ending did feel pretty rushed.

I'll admit, from start to finish, Amy has had me mesmerized with this incredible world of revenants. I was truly captured in Die For Me, gripping the pages in Until I Die, and going through an emotional roller coaster in If I Should Die. That is how a good series should make you feel. The main focus with this book is finding a way to save Vincent. There isn't much of the bad guys coming into play until closer to the end, but that doesn't mean Amy doesn't give you a good dose of drama, action, and intrigue along the way. I also liked that Amy gives us closure on some of the secondary characters as well as tying up the main plot. I think fans will be happy with how she gives each character their time to shine and also leaves things open for fan interpretation.

Vincent and Kate really have to be one of my favorite couples. Their love is just so sweet and innocent, yet intense and sizzling. The best part was that even though they're truly a great couple, they also stand out on their own. Kate is a force to be reckoned with, that's for sure. She's strong, determined, and compassionate. She definitely surprises you, as well as the other characters, as the book progresses. I kind of figured some things out, but it was great watching it all unravel. Vincent is just plain swoon-worthy. Oh, that beginning literally killed me, just like the end of Until I Die. Their love and respect for each other is unrivaled. I couldn't get enough of them together. And, oh, Vincent's shoulder! *Awwwwwwww*

And Jules! Oh, Jules! How I just want to hug you! The downside is there is definitely not enough of Jules in this book. You understand why as you read it, but that doesn't mean I liked it. I have a major crush on that man!

All great thing must come to an end. The question is will it end how you expect or hope. Amy Plum did a fantastic job with the end of her series. If I Should Die is all kinds of great. Amy balanced the story very well when it came to death and love. I knew that not everyone could survive and live happy ever after, that would make the story boring. This book will keep you on your toes and your heart pounding from the get go. You jump right in where Until I Die left us with our hearts broken and saying "NO, that didn't just happen".

Before we get into the story, I just want to talk about how much I love this book as well as the other two before it in the series. Amy took supernatural beings such as Zombies, that we associate as grotesque or creepy and remade them into something appealing and swoon worthy. Then Amy pick one of the most romantic cities in the world and brought it to life within these pages. The way Amy describes or paints Paris, really creates a picturesque setting. Then you have the moments where French is spoken, you can never go wrong with the language of love.

The time for the battle against good and evil has arrived and at the forefront are Kate and Vincent. Kate is devastated and has the Numa looking for her, she isn't safe anymore. Vincent is gone or is he not? Being captured by the Numa, is no walk in the park. There is a scene in the beginning that will squeeze the life out of your heart. You can't imagine continuing to read the book from that moment on. Well don't stop, I promise it will get better, not easier but better. Kate will have to put on her big girl pants and take charge. The Revenants will all come together in this epic battle that is doomed to bring casualties on both sides.

Book: The book opens with Vincent seemingly gone and Kate determined to put aside her grief and find a way to get Vincent back. Violette is deliciously evil now and several other characters evolve nicely in this book. Gradually, inch by inch, Kate and Vincent re-unite and then face a big, winner take all show down with Violette. In the meantime, Kate discovers her true destiny and becomes what she was meant to be. This is a generally satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. The author did a good job of not making the ending too predictable. Jean-Baptiste, Ambrose, Jules, and Charlotte all acquire a lot more depth and nuance in this book, making these characters a pleasure to read. Georgia, on the other hand, didn't do much for me in this book, which was mildly disappointing, since I liked her character a lot in prior books. The champion theme runs throughout this book, but I thought a bit more world building with this concept would have made it more compelling than it was. Also, some loose ends didn't get wrapped up at the end, but they were mostly minor ones.

Trilogy: I was lukewarm on book 1, which was almost entirely a predictable romance story, with the paranormal elements largely in the background as a stage prop. But book 2, with the romance firmly established, turns its focus on the paranormal aspects and I thought it was a step up from book 1. Book 3, IMO, was the best of the series, with a well thought out plot and a good mix of action and romance. This series will appeal to people who like paranormal and angel type stories, but want a decent serving of romance along with the action.
