Until I Die
by Amy Plum
Series: Revenants Book 2
Reading level: Ages 14 and up
Hardcover: 368 pages
Publisher: HarperTeen (May 8, 2012)
Buy the Book: Amazon
I wish there was only today, just right now, and no forever.

It seems fitting that I fell in love in Paris. Peel back a thin layer of reality and under the city's glamorous surface is a battleground for immortal enemies.

Because with Vincent, reality is an illusion. Handsome, chivalrous, and witty, he's got everything I've ever wanted in a boyfriend...except mortality. But when I chose Vincent, I chose love over reason and safety.

Vincent swore to avoid death--to resist his very nature so that we could be together. But I refuse to stand by and watch him suffer.

I know I'll do whatever it takes--even if it means lying to the people I love--to fight against a fate that is trying to tear us apart.

My Review:
     
     I have extremely mixed feelings about this book.  On one hand, I absolutely love Kate and Vincent.  I love how tough Kate is even though she's just a human, and how she can hold her own with the revenants.  I love how much Vincent loves Kate, how he's trying to deny his "calling" just to be with her, even though it's nearly impossible.  Also, I love their "family" of revenants, how much they take care of each other and how much they've come to love, accept, and protect Kate.  What I wasn't crazy about, and it pains me to say this, but I felt like almost nothing happened.  Like the whole book had a few crucial scenes, but most of it just seemed like "filler" space.  Maybe I expected too much from it.  I adored the first one, and maybe I just set my hopes too high for this one, but it was a bit disappointing that I didn't like it as much.  I really did enjoy it, I just wish there had been a little bit more, but I'll still be anxiously awaiting the sequel!

  11. It sounds like you were disappointed in the book and the fact that it didn't seem to go anyplace but you still really liked the basic make-up of the book itself. That's good enough of a recommendation for me to pick it up and read it. It sounds strong enough in other areas to almost make up for the negatives!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great review Kit!! Normally the "nothing" that happens in a book bugs me, but for some reason I liked that in this one. Maybe that has to do with the fact I had just read a book that was all action prior to this one. I liked the history and seeing more of the revenant family in this book. Thank you for being on the tour!

  51. I was wondering what your words for the scavenger hunt riddle are, I didn't see any above. I really liked Die for me and am excited about reading until I die, I am very grateful that you list the amount of sexual content in your reviews, I find it very hard to find books that have a good story and don't contain sexual content, content like that really puts me off a book, it is wonderful to know ahead of time what is in a book, in terms of content and I am even more excited now that I know the sexual content is mild

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hey Caitlyn! The words are "ARE WHITE" They are actually White, which I guess doesn't show up if you're not on the actual blog :P I'll change the font color!

  74. I absolutely loved Die for Me last summer when I read it while babysitting. It was (and stil is) the only book I've ever read about revenants so I was immediately sucked into it. It was someting new and fresh from all the other books I had been reading. Absolutely loved it.

  77. Hi!

    Even though you didnt enjoy this book as much as the previous one, I am still eager to read it. It often happens that second books (or anything in the middle of a series) feel sometimes as fillers. Once you have the whole series, then it feels really rewarding to have read them all, including the *filler* books. =) Great review!

    Thank you so much for the giveaway!! ^.^ fingers crossed! and btw, I had no idea about this blog (which seems to be very popular) until this blog tour! Im happy to have discovered it! -yay!!

    happy reading ^.^
