Preorder Die for Me
*ARC provided by the publisher*
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.
What I thought:
I wasn't sure exactly what I was getting into when I started reading, but I was quickly drawn to the story and to the characters. I thought the story was unique and very different from some of the other ya paranormal books I have read. I am always on the look out for something different and I was very pleased with this one.
I was expecting some sort of vampire book when reading the description originally so I was very glad for the fresh storyline. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, but I really fell for Kate and Vincent. Kate had such a heartbreaking beginning and she struggled all the way through with her new life and throwing in Vincent didn't seem to help at first.
I thought this was great. The pages were filled with heartbreak, action, tenderness, friendship, and romance. Highly recommended! I can't wait for the second book.
