Description:


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.

My Thoughts: 

This is the story of Kate who is living in Paris with her sister Georgia and their grandparents after their parents die in a car accident.  Kate starts out keeping mostly to herself she is the opposite of her wild sister. Georgia is out clubbing meeting all the wrong people but loving every minute of it.  

Kate finds herself drawn to this boy who she has seen a few times, the times they do talk start out rocky.  Neither one sure what they are looking for.  When Kate finally decides to give the boy Vincent a shot she learns so much about who he is and where he came from.

This isn't your typical zombie book, as we learn the Revenants don't eat brains, or limp around.  They lay dormant for 3 days to which they are in a ghostly form and can talk to other Revenants.  While Vincent lays dormant trouble is around his body.  Kate tries to protect him best she can even willing to sacrifice herself to save him.

This book was an up and down roller coaster while riding through their story.  Some people I've read compare it to Twilight series, I can say no way.  Die for Me stands on what it is about.  I can't wait to read the next book.  And the cover work on these are so beautiful!
