Review of Die for Me by Amy Plum and Blog Tour

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Young Adult, Paranormal Romance
BOOK THEME: Immortals
AUTHOR: Website
SERIES : Revenants #1
RECEIVED: Arc copy from Harper Collins

After the death of their parents Kate and Georgia move to Paris to stay with their grandparents. Both sisters are grieving in their own ways; Georgia the more outgoing and social one goes out every night. Katie stays home and reads or goes to the locate café to just get away. But one day at the café Kate sees a boy that will forever change her life. Vincent’s attraction for Kate is undeniable; the two embark on a dangerous path together, because Vincent isn’t the normal boy next-door.

Kate and her sister Georgia move to Paris after their parent’s death. Both still trying to come to terms with their lose and trying to move on in their lives, which is not easy. Kate is the lead character, a strong girl who has an old soul; she’s very much into literature, which I enjoyed, about her character. Also the relationship with her sister is wonderful because they are always there for each other, best friends, and have a way of helping each other through their hard time.
The story moves along nicely with introducing us to the other lead character Vincent. The way the author introduces both Kate and Vincent to each other is funny and grabs your attention to how Vincent acts awkward and a bit arrogant with out being annoying. Kate even though she finds him attractive just blows him off and tries to ungracefully get away from him each time she sees him.

As for the supernatural aspect of the story, its very interesting and something I haven’t heard of before. I don’t want to give away much of the plot, but the characters known as Revenants are immortal beings that protect people, in an unusual way. Kate and her sister witness Vincent and his friends in the act and Kate get even more intrigue with him. She gets drawn into this unusual world, all the dangers, and villains that come with it.

The romance in the book reminds me a lot of Twilight, but I like Kate better as a female character. She has a personality that is not weak; she’s a fighter and is fascinated by the life that the Revenants live. Her attraction to Vincent is almost instant, and he goes full throttle into letting her know he feels the same. He’s defiantly a romantic character, very loving and passionate in how he feels. The couple has their ups and downs making them real and easy to connect with.

I enjoyed this story and it was very well written, the author really brought her world to life and made it intriguing in every way. I recommend this book to any and all readers, even though the title is a bit odd, you read, “Die for Me” and are a bit taken back. But it’s very clear why the author chose this title, as you read further into the story.

This is a young adult novel, suiting for any age. It has some violence, but none that would be too scary for any reader. I would recommend to fans that like Stephanie Meyers, Richelle Mead, or PC Cast.


I'm apart of the Enchanted Blog Tour starting in April. One of the tours that I will be hosting here for Seeing Night Reviews is for The Bird Flew Away by Lynda Martin. Ill be hosting for this book on Friday the 15th of April.

Genre: women’s fiction, literary fiction. The book isn’t exactly an adult novel, and it can be read by mature young adults as well.

Synopsis: What is real love? The whole world wants to know. They should ask Bria Jean, because she has it all figured out. Opinionated, stubborn and full of woe, Bria would tell you real love is having one person you can always count on through thick and thin. For her, that’s Jack. And it doesn’t matter to her that she’s nine and he’s twenty-three-not one bit. When, at the age of twelve, Bria disappears, he and his Aunt Mary search for her, and when she surfaces, injured, abused and traumatized, Jack fights to become her guardian with no idea of the trials ahead of him. By then, Bria is thirteen going on thirty, full of her own ideas on how her life should run and with some very fixed notions about who is in charge.


  1. great review! I've just finished this, so I'll be posting a review fairly soon I think. I totally get what you mean about the romance reminding you of twilight-I thought that too. Glad you enjoyed this.

  2. Thanks Cait! Yah I actually liked the romance in this book way better than twilight. I look forward to reading your review!

  3. Die for me looks really good and not one I have heard of before. Thanks!

  4. Great review! Sounds like I might enjoy it. I really did enjoy the Twilight series, but yes I was annoyed by the weakness of Bella. So it would be nice to see someone with some spunk!
