Until I Die Review

Until I Die

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.

What I Loved
Vincent and Kate are so perfect for each other. Their devotion and passion for one another is epic and touching.
I usually don't add quotes, but this one was so touching and displays the essence of their love I had to add it.
"Watching him was enough. but after a moment he spoke. 'Kate, I've spent a lifetime waiting for you. Before I saw you, I hadn't cared for anyone for... well, for a god part of a century, and it felt like my heart had been permanently disconnected. I wasn't even looking anymore. And without expecting anything...without any hope at all, suddenly you were here.'"
Kate: She impressed me immensely in Die For Me and she keeps on impressing me in Until I Die. She is learning to fight so she can protect herself, how freaking cool it that! I would love to be in her shoes and learning all the fight/defensive techniques. She continues to be rational when other characters are completely irrational. 
Vincent: He is still himself and I still love his character.
Betrayal within the house, a curious absence of numa attacks, searching for a painless way for Kate and Vincent to be together without him having to suffer and an ending that rendered me speechless and it total shock. A never ending fight for love, the only thing in the world to fight for.  

Killing Me
Oh my goodness I can't believe it ended like that. I think all authors like to torture their readers for the last book before the concluding book. I was so close to tears, I really need next year to get here now so I can have If I Should Die in my hands right now.

Revenant Trilogy
Die For Me my review
Until I Die
If I Should Die May 2013

In keeping with the theme of my last post and choosing a song for the book. I also choose a song by the same band Within Temptation (they are awesome) the song is All I Need and I think it fits well with Kate and Vincent. 

Have you read the first book yet?

Great review! I am so excited for this book but I am debating if I should re-read Die For Me first. What do you think?

I enjoyed this one just as much as Die For Me. There was less of the "Will they get together or won't they?" and more focus on Kate and Vincent as a couple. Now that they were together at last, it was nice to see their relationship grow and develop. They were so sweet to each other, especially with Vincent again trying to win Best Boyfriend of the Year. As is common in books, including YA, the 2 main characters had a tendency not to tell each other important things, which we readers know is just going to come back and bite them in the ass.

The big mystery in Until I Die was whether Vincent could avoid sacrificing himself during his rescue missions. In his quest to mold himself to fit Kate's life, he was trying out a top-secret experiment to see if it could help him control the urge to die. It had some disturbing side effects which caused Kate to go on her own mission to research all she could about the revenants in an effort to keep Vincent alive.
