Synopsis. (Goodreads)

Kate and Vincent have overcome the odds and at last they are together in Paris, the city of lights and love.

As their romance deepens there’s one question they can’t ignore: How are they supposed to be together if Vincent can’t resist sacrificing himself to save others? Although Vincent promises that he’ll do whatever it takes to lead a normal life with Kate, will that mean letting innocent people die? When a new and surprising enemy reveals itself, Kate realizes that even more may be at stake—and that Vincent’s immortality is in jeopardy.

In Die for Me, Amy Plum created a captivating paranormal mythology with immortal revenants and a lush Paris setting. Until I Die is poised to thrill readers with more heart-pounding suspense, spellbinding romance, and a cliff-hanger ending that will leave them desperate for the third and final novel in the series.

REVIEW: 4 out of 5 stars

Until I Die is the second book in the Revenants series by Amy Plum.

After events which happened in Die for Me, Kate has been accepted into the Revenant family, is training alongside them and is learning more about their history and their purpose. Her boyfriend Vincent is as protective as ever and their relationship is going along seemingly well until their future comes into question and what will happen as Kate ages and Vincent will stay forever young.

Vincent as a Revenant feels the compulsion to die over and over again to save others, it is his sole purpose for being so will continue to reanimate at the age he originally died, after experiencing grief and depression recently after losing her parents, Kate can’t bear the thought of seeing Vincent die so they seek alternative ways to be together but Vincent’s way seems to cause him more harm than good and leave him in a weakened state and Kate is getting involved in a world and with people that could possibly cause everyone around her harm.

Not only do they have to sort out their budding relationship but the ongoing feud between Revenants and the Numa is getting to be more serious and with someone close possibly leaking crucial information things are as intense as ever. Secrets are being kept; there is betrayal, miscommunication and deceit and Vincent is looking at any way possible to keep Kate safe.

I love the world Ms Plum has created, it is a fascinating and unique concept and each of the characters, secondary included are truly wonderful. I especially adore revenants Ambrose, Charlotte and Jules – the relationship between Kate and her sister is lovely, the close bond they share is really sweet. We are also introduced to a few new characters, Arthur and Violette who both played important roles. The beautiful setting of Paris is vivid and detailed to perfection.

The mystery, suspense and unexpected plot twists and turns kept me riveted, I was immersed in this amazing story from the very first page but was also completely gob smacked by the heart wrenching ending! Therefore, I am eager to get hold of the final book in this series, If I Should Die which has an anticipated May 2013 release date.

Overall, Until I Die is a thoroughly enjoyable, action-packed and intriguing sequel; to me it definitely read more as a middle book filler and focused on the relationship between Vincent and Kate but it has also set the scene for the final book perfectly.

Die for Me REVIEW


  1. I bought the first book and have it on my list for July..so glad you liked this and that it was action packed!

  2. I just finished this book. I cannot believe that ending. I love Vincent more then the previous book. I am also trying to figure out Jules & his story. Looking forward to reading the conclusion.
