Editorial Reviews

Review

“[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)

“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.” (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 Back Cover

I wish there was only today, just right now, and no forever.

It seems fitting that I fell in love in Paris. Under the city's glamorous surface there's a battleground of immortals.

Vincent, too, is an illusion. Handsome, chivalrous, and witty, he's got everything a girl could want . . . except mortality. But when I chose Vincent, I chose love over reason and safety.

Vincent swore to resist his very nature so that we can be together. But I refuse to stand by and watch him suffer. I'll do whatever it takes to fight against his fate.

Fantastic job Amy Plum!

While it's obvious that this book falls in the middle of the trilogy, the cliffhanger it ends on is quite good.

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: Kindle Edition
In the sequel to Die For Me, we find Kate and Vincent making 'happy dating teenagers' surrounded by Vincent's revenant family, filling their days teaching Kate sword-fighting and gossiping about the love-lives of the others.

Surprise, surprise tranquil happiness can't last, Kate starts to question her and Vincent's relationship, wondering just what his long (immortal) term plans are, and just how strong is the need to sacrifice himself to save others?

Meanwhile Vincent has a plan to tackle his sacrificial needs, a plan that he hasn't let Kate into the loop of.

Frustrated by the situation Kate investigates the mythology of the revenant and finds out more than she ever wanted to know.

Until I die, continues an original fantasy series that breathes new creatures into a genre flooded with the same old beasties. The focus of the tension is on relationships and mythology, so I will say if you're looking for an action fantasy this might not be your cup of tea. However, that doesn't mean this book isn't more hard hitting than your average 'fluffy' supernatural romance.

The ending will leave you gagging for If I Should Die, the concluding book due 2013

Format: Hardcover
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.
