Last year I was greatly surprised by Die For Me (Revenants #1). The story was so original and well written, and the characters were so real and lovable that I immediately placed the book among my favorite releases of the year. This time, Until I Die (Revenants #2) absolutely blew my mind, and also, it smashed my soul to a million pieces (Oh my God! what an ending!).

The story picks-up soon after the ending of Die For Me. Kate and Vincent are a lovely couple, but of course they have this big problem going on due to Vincent's compulsion to die for humans. This obviously complicates Kate and Vincent's relationship. So, Vincent starts an experiment that will help him to avoid his desire to die, but unfortunately this experiment also has its risks (which I wont give away). In the other hand, Kate researches another way to help Vincent to fight his revenant nature and help him to stay alive long enough until... until the day Kate grows old and dies.

The second installment of this invigorating paranormal romance absolutely stole my heart. If I loved Revenants before, now I love them even more! Amy Plum's marvelous story telling kept me turning pages with no stop. I love how mature and realistic Kate's character is. Specially the way she handles her presence into the paranormal world she is now part of. In addition, Vincent is as captivating as always yet, he is not the typical and perfect fictional knight in shining armor. Vincent, regardless being a supernatural being himself, feels really human and real to the reader. That is what makes Vincent so alluring. He is believable.

I love so many things about Until I Die and I could talk about the plot, the fascinating Parisian setting, the well developed characters and the enthralling Revenant concept forever. Yet, I obviously prefer you to experience this spellbinding love story by yourself. I 100% recommend it!

With a heart-wrenching ending that yet sparks with hope, Until I Die will make you feel hundreds of emotions at the same time. Amy Plum has definitely played one of her greatest cards and I cannot wait to know how she will conclude this enthralling story (and one of my favorites!) in If I Should Die, the third and last book of this fabulous trilogy. Here I have another long torture to bear until If I Should Die hits the shelves.

    Needs More Action!

    I absolutely loved the first one. I loved Vincent so much and he instantly became a book crush. Both he and Kate made a great couple, and although they had the chemistry going on, their relationship sort of went in the way of the overall plot.

    The plot had great potential and it was just as exciting as the first book. I loved the idea of the Revenants, and Kate managed to develop into a stronger character (remember the middle finger incident? haha!). My favorite characters still are Jules and Vincent. Their personalities are likable and I’m glad they haven’t changed a bit.

    Although the book was a good one, there were quite a full lulls throughout the story, and as mentioned before, Kate and Vincent’s romance marred it. Don’t get me wrong, I love them both together, they had wonderful chemistry and a great romance, but I don’t want to read their sappy one liners, and how much they love being in each other’s company. I want the plot to keep going, I want to see the action, I want to see what next suspenseful thing is coming next. But I’m stuck reading on love and kissing scenes. Not quite what I had in mind. On top of that, the action really happens in the last 50 pages. So it felt as if time was wasted.

    So, it’s worth a read because it’s the second in the series, but I’m hoping the third will be better. A little less on the sappy romance, more action on more Revenants please!

    Rview by Babel.
    A pesar de la poca acción y movimiento, es una historia bonita que encandila fácilmente debido a la figura de los Revenants y sus misterios. Además, el final ha sido tan dramático que ya estoy temblando por la tercera parte.

    I was frustrated with this installment of the Die for Me series,

    I was frustrated with this installment of the Die for Me series, not because it was bad so much as that it was incomplete. And when I say incomplete I mean two words CLIFF HANGER! Unlike in Die for Me where the book has a completed plot line, Until I Die just stops at a climax. It's one of those books that if I'd known better I would have waited until the 3rd books was published so I could be relieved from the tension left by the incomplete drama.

    One of the better parts of Until I Die is the development of Kate's character. She recognizes that she hasn't chosen the easiest path and if there is any sword fighting to do in the future Vincent might not be around to do it for her. So instead of hiding behind her hunky main man and her new found semi-immortal friends, Kate starts training. She gets to prove her merit in a fight or two.

    My recommendation is Until I Die is worth your time, but not until you have access to book 3.

    Gud but not as gud as the 1st one

    I gave this book only three star because i dont think it is as good as the last one. It didnt have a good plot i thought and defiantly compared to the first one this one wasnt gud. I would say to buy it if u started this series but if u didnt like the first one and want to read the rest of the series dont get this one. It is defiantly worse than the first one. I will defiantly finish the series just because im this far into it but i seriously hope the next one is better than this one.

    Die For Me should have stayed a standalone novel

    Die For Me was written to be a standalone novel. It should have stayed that way in my opinion. I totally fell in love with Die For Me and Kate and Vincent last year. Until I Die had me still loving the characters, but I was rather bored with the story. I will not be reading the third and final book in the series. I’m going to kind of forget that I read Until I Die and just remember my love for Die For Me. Until I Die wasn’t horrible, but it was nowhere near as good as Die for Me and was just an okay story overall.
