Format: Paperback
irst Impressions: I read Die for Me when it was released last year and I had been waiting for what seemed like forever to grab a copy of the second book, Until I Die. I loved just about everything from the first book, so I was ecstatic when Until I Die arrived on my doorstep and I promptly opened up the package and started to read.Oh, and the cover art is gorgeous!

First 50 Pages: I'd like to start this by saying that I adore the setting for both books. The rich, intrinsic, and drop-dead gorgeous Paris setting is to die for (no pun intended). The way the author describes everything makes you feel like you are really there experiencing everything the characters are going through without being overly done or confusing. Her writing style is pretty straight-forward and fairly easy to read and follow. Although, when the author does add French to the mix, it is a little bit distracting. I don't know more than five words in French, so I had to stop reading and Google certain words and such. It was a tiny annoyance.

With that being said, Until I Die felt very much like a "middle" book and I'll explain why I felt this way later on in my review. For the first 50 pages, I was seriously hooked and it didn't take me very long to finish the whole book.

Characters & Plot: I'm going to keep this spoiler free since I am writing this review a few months before the release date. I don't want to torture fans with spoilers!

The pacing in Until I Die is a bit slower than the first novel, I believe, and it is one of the reasons I consider this book a really good "middle" book, which technically speaking, it is since it is part of a trilogy.

So...I have tons of scribbles for this book. If you know my reading style at all, you know that this is never a good sign. When I'm consumed by a book, or vice versa, I tend to forget to stop and record my thoughts. When a book is not living up to my expectations? THAT'S when I find myself with pages of notes. Granted, I can't include a lot of my notes in my review because some of my thoughts were particularly spoilery, but you get the point.

I loved Die for Me when I read it last year. I liked the story, the characters, the setting...I even appreciated the bad guy. However, I'm starting to notice a trend. A big majority of the books I read this time last year - read: the first books in trilogies that are slated to release sequels this year - really wowed me. Maybe I was just getting back into my reading groove and was happy to read anything at that point. This was around the time I started my blog and everything was new and shiny and full of awesome. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you compared my taste in reading materials from a year ago to the present, the results might be a bit skewed. Basically, I'm just warning you that I'm not going to review Until I Die as favorably as I did Die for Me, and I want you to know that I'm not picking on the book or the author. Also, it may not be any fault of the author or the book. It really could just be me that changed.

That said, I feel that Until I Die fell into the "middle book slump". It was 350+ pages of fluff, nothing of any consequence really happening throughout the entirety of the novel. Sure, Kate is searching for a way for her and Vincent to have a somewhat normal life together, and he's conducting experiments with the same end result in mind.

Format: Paperback
The premise of this series is so cool, and has so much potential, but with overly flowery cliche prose, an unbelievable romance that has no foundation other than explainable attraction, and a pace that puts you to sleep, this one falls flat. I had enjoyed the first one enough to read the second installment, hoping that the story would be better formed and more interesting considering it was second in a series and therefor would have less world building to do. However, the author spends the second book doing as much--if not more--world building than she did in the first, leaving no room at all for story. I kid you not, most of the book is spent watching characters do research. Exciting...

It's fluff, and sadly, not even good fluff. Save your money on this one and wait for it to come to the library.

Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: This sequel takes a long time to take off as Kate and Vincent search for ways to stop a revenant from the compulsion to die.

Opening Sentence: I leapt, drawing my feet up beneath me, as the seven-foot quarterstaff smashed into the flagstones where I had been standing half a second before.

The Review:

This book begins the night Charlotte and Charles are leaving the mansion for exile-also known as Jean-Baptiste's other country mansion. (Life as a revenant is hard.) The Parisian revenants are throwing a going-away-welcome-party; wishing Charlotte and Charles good-bye and introducing Violette and Arthur. Violette and Arthur are a super codependent non-couple that have been together since the Middle Ages. They're only in town until Charles gets his head back on straight and they don't have to worry about him. That being said, they've spent a long time in isolation in the countryside and are more than a little snobby. For one thing, Arthur's got the whole aristocratic, revenants-are-better-than-mortals thing going on which doesn't exactly endear him to Kate and the others.

While the revenants are dealing with their new housemates, Vincent's struggling not to die. He's stronger than most revenants his age, so he can last longer before the compulsion becomes unbearable, but how long is that? Kate knows he's up to something-probably something dangerous or he'd tell her about it-to keep himself alive. But is his so-called cure for compulsion going to threaten his immortality? Kate takes it upon herself to find another way-a safer way. Delving into the ancient texts Kate finds an old book called Immortal Love, but the book has words missing.
