REVIEW: Until I Die by Amy Plum
And I enjoyed Until I Die SO much more than I liked Die For Me. Kate and Vincent's relationship felt more real this time around and with that not in question, I was able to relate more to their story. Already they've been through a lot in order to be together and what this book really focuses on is their struggle to deal with the future.
Kate isn't sure that she's done the right thing in asking Vincent to not sacrifice himself by dying in place of others. She begins to doubt her selfish decision when she finds more about revenants and how this choice to not die goes against who Vincent is and against his very nature. The interesting thing is how this conflict is dealt with by Kate and Vincent. They have very different means to their problems.
I find myself really excited about this series. I loved the mystery involved in Until I Die. I loved learning more about the history of revenants, getting to know more about Vincent's friends and also seeing Kate and Vincent's relationship develop deeper, even as there is danger and secrets aplenty. With the level of fight scenes, interesting history and sizzling romance, this series is one not to miss!
I'd like the third book now, if that's all right with you.
