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.

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.

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.

~4/5

I put off reading this because I heard about a horrible cliffhanger, but now I have the third, and last, book, so I finally got to reading it. And I'm kind of glad that I waited, because I would not have liked having to wait so long.

This book seemed to move rather slowly. It's not action-packed, it focuses a lot on Kate and Vincent's relationship, along with a reasonable amount for the other characters. It's rather character-based, although there is still some action. It doesn't seem like very much is happening, but there actually is. And for some reason, it's really easy to get sucked into the story, to keep wanting to read, and for the pages to go by rather quickly.

The descriptions of the places that Kate goes are rather well done. I get a good image of where she is, and I can easily tell that Kate is enjoying it, is relishing in the view. Also, I like that the Eifel Tower is not the centered Paris Place in this book; it tends to be the main event for most people, is always the thing showed and thought of when Paris is brought up, so I'm glad that Kate sees so much else, and that the Eifel Tower only gets a couple small mentions, in this one and the first book.

I'm still a rather big fan of Vincent and Kate; Vincent is a sweetheart, and Kate is very active and pretty smart, which I like. The romance between them is well done, and a lot of focus is placed on it, which I think is good. There are also several romantic scenes between the two, and the only upsetting thing about that is that they're so tiny.

I haven't grown as close with the other characters, and some of them are kind of hard to remember what their personality is supposed to be, just because the time with them is so little.
