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.

Amy Plum creates a very romantic setting in the streets of Paris with Until I Die.  Unfortunately, this installment didn’t keep my interest the way Die For Me did.

Kate seemed really bland this time around.  She didn’t ask for help when she needed it, and put others’ lives in danger because of it.  She was also incredibly emotional, and entirely too trusting. She just blurts her business to everyone except the person she needs to be talking to.  Also, I didn’t care for Vincent’s evasiveness with the things he’s going through.  Both people need to realize that secrets do not help matters.  I do love Georgia though.  She’s definitely one of my favorite characters.

My other problem with the story was that it felt drawn out.  There are some action scenes, but they are few and far between.  I feel like most of the book was Kate and Vincent hiding things from each other.  Some things that happen are pretty crappy, and definitely needed for the next book to be possible.

Even with the issues I had, I really enjoy Plum’s writing.  The ending definitely left me wanting to read If I Should Die.  I definitely plan on this in the near future.
