Book Review - Die for Me by Amy Plum (Revenants Book 1)

In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life--and memories--behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant--an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.

My Review
(video review below) 
This story starts off on a sad note with Kate's parents having died in a car accident and her and her sister moving over to Paris to live with their grandparents. When in Paris, Kate has a hard time adjusting to her parent's death and resorts to keeping herself to herself, reading books and sitting in coffee shops alone.  

Then she meets Vincent.  There is a great romantic build up with Kate and Vincent and there was certainly a lot more to Vincent than meets the eye.  

This is definitely one of those stories that has a bit of good -v- bad, who is going to win?    There is a lot more that I could say about this story but there is a lot that I don't want to give away and spoil for those of you who have this on their TBR..  I will say that this is the start of an amazing paranormal series and I can't wait to dig into the second instalment....

Best wishes

Debs :-)
