Review: Die For Me - Amy Plum

I received Die For Me by Amy Plum from netgalley courtesy of HarperCollins.

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.

So I'm not going to write anything too spoilery in my review because I went in to this book not really knowing anything more than what's in the summary above and enjoyed it so much more because of it. Let me start by saying that it was super cute and super awesome.

I loved the main characters Kate and Vincent I think they may have made it in to my top ten favourite fictional couples. They seem well suited and I really liked how well Kate took the news about Vincent's deep dark secret. I love all the extra abilities that Kate and Vincent have together it makes there relationship seem meant to be.

I also loved both Kate and Vincent's families, they made the book far more interesting and gave it a lot more depth than if it had just focused on the main couple. Although I am a little wary of Jules because I really don't want this to be a Edward/Bella/Jacob thing - I can't stand love triangles. Kate's relationship with her sister Georgia was one of the highlights of the book, although they still fought like sisters do they had this bond because of what they had been through that meant no matter what happens and no matter what they had been fighting about they would always come through for each other and that was nice to see.

I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in the series although it's going to be a long wait I can't wait to find out what's in store for this couple, I'm sure it's not going to be an easy journey for them.

Die For Me is an excellent addition to the YA paranormal romance genre and it's one of my favourites so far this year.

That's all for now.
