I really had no idea what to expect when starting this book. I’d heard something about the book featuring a group a of people that were forced to sacrifice themselves for people who were about to die. And all I could think was….what? How does that work? Is everyone just going to die? All the time?
I didn’t understand that this group of people come back. Every time. They die in place of random people they come across, and regenerate in three days. So, that was interesting.
Kate and her sister Georgia have just moved to Paris to live with their grandparents after the death of their parents. Kate, understandably, is having trouble adjusting and connecting. She’s closed herself off and doesn’t want anything to do with anyone. Until she spies a mysterious group of strangers, one of them magnetically attractive, and, oh yeah, they save her life in the most surreal way.
This starts a chain reaction of love, mystery, magic, and sacrifice.
Kate is a main character that is easy to sympathize with and Vincent, the attractive stranger, is easy to enjoy. The story was engaging, fun and different. I had a lot fun reading this book. It wasn’t deep or pretentious. It was just a fun story with some good characters and an original backstory.
I’m looking forward to learning more about the Revenants, and all that they’ve seen and done throughout the years. It’s really creepy how they die and regenerate. The author did a good job with that. I’m sure I would have had the same reaction as Kate when she first found out, no matter how good looking Vincent was.
All in all, Die For Me was a fin, engaging story, with good characters, a beautiful Parisian backdrop with a little bit of creepy on the side. What’s not to like?
Also, the cover is gorgeous. I love a gorgeous cover.
