Book Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum
Die for Me by Amy Plum
This is a debut novel from a talented new writer that really stands out from other paranormal romances that are on the market. Firstly, the setting is absolutely gorgeous and it perfectly captures the gothic beauty of the French Quarter in Paris. Even if you haven’t been to Paris, you will enjoy walking these atmospheric streets. Secondly, the characters are wonderful! Georgia and her sister, Kate, two teenagers who move from America after their parents die to live with their grandparents. Struggling with the dual tragedy, sixteen-year-old Kate in particular finds it difficult to carry on. But then she meets the mysterious and sexy Vincent who sweeps her off her feet – but when she is suddenly involved in his world nothing is as she ever thought it would be. Vincent looks human but is really a ‘Revenant’ – an immortal being who is fated to sacrifice himself over and over to save the people around him. But for every soul he saves from throwing themselves off a bridge or in front of a train, there are other immortal beings that he fights who are there whispering to the tortured to commit an act of suicide.
Technically this is classed as a young adult novel, but trust me readers of all ages will devour these books. If you are even slightly a fan of the paranormal, you will love this book – and the good news it is the start of a new series. I can’t wait to find out what will happen to Kate and Vincent next in this epic world of good versus evil.
