Goodreads Summary: "In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.
When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life--and memories--behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.
Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant--an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again."
Kate and Georgia reminded me a great deal of my favorite cousin and I, while I couldn't say we were brought up as sisters [technically we aren't even "related"] our mothers were insanely close and we did a lot together. We're Yin and Yang. I'm the introvert and she's the extrovert. Occasionally she would try to bring me in, was always sweet about it and all inclusive but it was never quite my world. I was always happier with my books, wandering on my own, I'm so a Kate to her Georgia. I think this is why I loved these sisters. I felt like it could have been my story. If, you know, my cousin and I had been sisters and shipped off to Paris.
Vincent, Kate's love interest, was the absolute in boyfriends however he had some severe competition for this reader's heart when Jules arrived on the scene. He's such a charmer. I always fall for them. Vincent was sweet and dreamy, everything a book boyfriend [or real one for that matter] should be but when Jules was around he just completely stole the show. Comparatively it was like wandering around with a candle then suddenly having the room alit with LED lights. One is comforting, classic and definitely romantic whereas the other is just captivating and you cannot look away.
As for the novel itself, I was completely swept up in the story. It took me a couple of chapters to sort of feel it out but as soon as I did I was hooked. I just kept flipping pages, I had to know what came next. The romance, the action, the understanding of what was really going on and what was truly at stake for the characters just kept me going. There was so much! Amy Plum did a fantastic job at weaving her story together.
I'll admit I was slightly disappointed, just EVER SO SLIGHTLY, by the fact that this wasn't the romantic zombie book I was expecting when I first heard about it. On the zombie part I mean, the romance was there and THEN SOME. But overall I'm giving Die For Me by Amy Plum a five out of five stars review and already plotting how to get its sequel on my pre-order list without breaking the bank.
