"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." (Summary from goodreads.com)

Amy Plum's Die For Me is the story of Kate who moves to Paris with her sister and grandparents after the tragic death of her parents. While Kate struggles to cope with the loss of her parents, she meets Vincent. Vincent has a dark secret and Kate eventually finds herself in the middle of his dangerous world.

Die For Me is a great supernatural and romantic story set in gorgeous Paris. I sympathized greatly for Kate, but she turns out to be much stronger than even she could of imagined. Vincent is the dark and mysterious boy that you can not help but fall for. Kate's sister, Georgia, is a free spirit and provides a great contrast to Kate.

I did feel that the story was a bit rushed and that caused Kate and Vincent's relationship to be rushed. Kate and Vincent's relationship did however face many obstacles and by the end I found myself rooting for them. The revenant mythology was interesting and I felt that the last few chapters really stand out and include a great action scene. Overall I enjoyed Die For Me and can not wait to see where Plum takes this story next.
