About the book:
DIE FOR ME is the first of three books about Kate, a sixteen-year-old American who moves to Paris after the death of her parents. She finds herself falling for Vincent, who she discovers is not the typical French teenager he appears: he is something else entirely.
DIE FOR ME presents a new supernatural mythology presented in a city where dreams are sometimes the same as reality.
Die For Me is a mysterious and inventive story with a bitter sweet romance that will leave readers dieing for more. The introduction of the Revenants is truly original in the raving paranormal genre. This new species creates a new hero for readers to follow. The characters throughout this first novel were so incredibly powerful that readers will find their selves captivated from the first page. Kate is a extremely profound character that makes it effortless to follow. Beginning this novel with tragedy was an attention grabber, and allows readers to sympathize with our main character. Although, as the story progressed I found this character to be anything but a damsel in distress that would require sympathy. On the same note, Vincent our beloved hero is powerful and dangerous, but when layers begin to unravel I was astonished to see this story take a bit of a turn. Character in this novel are of abundance with the Revenants Kindred, but it is entertaining to see the personas of each character taking shape through Plum’s detailed writing. This is honestly a story that betrays readers first impression, and will continue to shift and shape itself through the final pages. As a first novel for Amy Plum I am completely and utterly amazing and awed by the talent displayed here. With very few moments of noticeable transition; I would never have guessed this to be a debuting author. Readers will be adding to their favorites list this novel, and I look for her fan base to sky rocket after the May release. I will be looking for much more to come from this incredibly talented author.
