My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?
First of all I want to say that I looooove love love love Vincent Pierre Henri Delacroix! Ok now enough with that and let me try to make a review for this beautifully written book
This book is amazingggg!
This is just one book that I totally love and will forever love! It will remain in my heart forever. This book introduced me into a whole new world of paranormal creature, one creature that I didn’t expect to love and to care about. The story of Die For Me is unique, a fresh take about zombies but no technically they're not zombies they are called Revenants, creatures that I described as super heroes.
When I started reading this book it was really slow, there’s nothing really happening much and it was kind of repetitive. But I never judge a book just like that. I ended up loving the next few chapters and thus ending up obsessed with it the moment it ended and wanting more. The introduction of Revenants was really amazing and well plotted. I was at awe with the details on how Revenants are made and it was well explained that it worked so well with the story.
I personally like Kate as the protagonist. I think her personality is just like mine. A girl that is grieving about her parents’ death, a teenager who’s full of angst about how life is very much unfair for her. An amazing character that I sure everyone can relate to. Vincent on the other hand is one character that I sweaaaar to love forever! I mean he’s very much dreamy that’s all I can say before this becomes very much about I love Vincent lol. Her relationship with Kate is for all I can say is real. Their love blossomed throughout the story that I think is really sweet.
I basically love all the characters; they contributed so much in creating this beautiful story. Each of the characters added life to the story, one thing that I really love about this book. Every character is engaging and the fact that they like Kate for Vincent is a big factor lol I just have to add that one.
Cover wise. I totally love it! I say that some people may look at the cover first before buying a book but this is one book that has a beautiful cover and an amazing story inside it! It very much lived up to my expectation.
All in all I love this book no matter what, I love the story. It may have started a little bit slow for me but it was a great read all in all. It has affected me all throughout reading it and I swear to have obsessed with it after finishing it. I recommend it to everyone who likes contemporary, if you don’t fall for Vincent I don’t know what else to say.
Now I can’t wait for the second book which is Until I Die that is expected to be published May of 2012. An unbearable wait but I’m waiting!
