Synopsis

My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.

Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.

Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.

While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

For the most part Kate has a good sense of who she is...until she meets Vincent and begins to move towards a character who has to have a boy to make her life worth living, such as this quote demonstrates:

Unfortunately, Die For Me fell flat to me. I found myself unable to connect with the characters. Kate spends so much of her time moping, which is understandable, but it gets old to me after awhile. Plus she’s kind of bland.

These aren’t vampires or zombies like you’ve ever seen before. Her Revanants (just read the book — it’ll be explained) are wholly unique and offer an original new take on the paranormal romance.

So I said with a bit of a laugh so I wouldn’t sound too ridiculous–”It’s called Die For Me.” She kind of gave me a look–it said, that’s beneath you.

But after them, I got over the insta-love, the “Sure, I will quickly and easily overlook the fact that you are DANGEROUS and kinda DEAD” thing. So, you know, that didn’t do much for me here.

Die For Me was vibrantly romantic and able to transport me into the European world of art history and museums; a place where the undead are beautiful creatures, risking their lives to save others.

And the way that the final conflict goes down at the end of the book was, to me at least, totally and utterly disappointing. Everything I hope *not* to see in a paranormal book marketed to teenage girls.
