Die for Me by Amy Plum

Summary (from Goodreads): 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?
My Review:
I very rarely read e-books on my ipod (even though I have pretty much every e-reader app) because the screen is kind of small. Anyway I normally make it my personal mission to not leave the house without a book, but I failed a few days ago. However I had my ipod already loaded with my e-galleys from Netgalley so I was able to start Die for Me.

Once I started Die for Me I couldn't stop I sat and read the book in one sitting. I'm pretty sure that the imprint from my bedazzled case is permanently imprinted on my hand. The plot and characters where both so original. I love the idea of Revenants. The plot keeps the readers engaged the whole time because you don't want to miss what will happen next. There were a few times when the story was kinda predictable but the surprises in the rest of the book make up for it. 

My favorite characters where Mami and Papi, their relationship is something that most people dream of. They were able to find true love really early in their life and it has lasted so many years. I do get the impression that there is more to them than meets the eye. I guess we will learn more about them in book 2.  Jules and Ambrose are really funny and I their characters are developed really well. Then there is the relationship between Kate and Vincent man oh man  it melted my socks off. I can't wait for the next book!

  4. I'm definitely interested in Mami and Papi too. I think they have some greater connection to the world of revenants and numa. Very curious.
