I will not lose another person I love. I will not let history repeat itself.

Vincent waited lifetimes to find me, but in an instant our future together was shattered. He was betrayed by someone we both called a friend, and I lost him. Now our enemy is determined to rule over France’s immortals, and willing to wage a war to get what they want.

I can’t believe I put off reading this one for so long, especially after the ending in Until I Die. This was such a great conclusion and I am so glad I finally got around to reading it. I love Kate and Vincent and I am so glad I was able to experience their story. I also want to take this second to pride myself on completely guessing where the story was going. Yay me.

UPDATE 10.05.2013:

Before reading:

At first: 'THE DAY' HAS FINALLY ARRIVED. I can't wait to get started!*Celebrating by my self*




Walking home from school I was like:



And then: Should I really read this? What if Vincent never comes back? And what if he dies, if he hasn't already? Am I ready for this to be over? I postponed it for 3 hours before finally saying hell with it and began to read.



After reading:

Can't. Form. Sentences. Right now
Why is the release date so far away?!D:
And with the ending of Until I Die...
I'd say I hate Amy Plum for:
1. The cliffhanger that made my heart feel like she twisted it out of my chest, stood on and then chewed it apart.
3. Giving me an extremely high expectations in men. I NEED my own Vincent or Jules. I'M BEGGING YOU.

But there is no way I'd ever hate Amy for creating one of my favourite series ever!

Just got this for my Birthday! Damn. I guess, its about time we get the Nook Color anyway ... Btw,yes, the screen is cracked ... along with our hearts. (This was chucked across Starbucks, we were asked politely to pick it up, and leave.)

This is what 'Until I Die', made us do ...
Now, we know you're thinking "This chick has some serious anger issues..." But think about this, we read 'Die for Me' , and 'Until I Die', in the same day, back-to-back. So it went something like 'We LOVE you so much

As someone who’s been a pretty big fan of this series from the day Die for Me came out, I had very mixed feelings about this final installment. I’ve spent a lot of time wondering about Kate and Vincent’s fate, and even after a whole year of living with that awful cliffhanger in mind, a part of me was reluctant to have it resolved and let them go – not because I doubted their happily ever after, but because they are so very dear to me.

Although things turned out exactly as I thought they would in

Yeah, honestly, I don't even know what I wanted to read this book so badly. The first book was okay, the second book was bad, and this book just blew me away…with how absolutely awful it was. I hated it so much I didn't even know what to do with myself. I wanted to love this book, and I really wanted this series to redeem itself because I honestly believed that it could. But it just didn't even live up to the lowest of my expectations.

Reviewer’s Note: For those of you new to the party, Revenants is a series near and dear to a certain heart around these here parts. Just not mine. As I explained in my review of Until I Die:
I was intrigued by all the five star reviews of Die for Me, so I decided to investigate, by asking the one person I know who'd rush out to get Until I Die and devour it in a couple of hours even though it usually takes her a month to finish anything, my little sis, who I'll refer to as Amy Plum's Number O

Dear Amy Plum,
I realize that you are not going to read this but since all of us are suffering from the date of when this book comes out because of the end of Until I Die and all... I was kinda hoping that we could get an early copy of the book since you love us so much! Thanks!

Really loved the end of the series. Favorite parts-the auras and the rembodiment. Lots of action and twists at the end. Great job Amy! I am, however, having a croissant craving now.

UPDATE: The name has been released! "If I Should Die"



Is this because Rachel Vincent's book, If I Die (Soul Screamers #5) came out recently, and Amy Plum was maybe planning on naming this book that?

Update: Cover Reveal: PRETTY. I just wish that stupid heart wasn't around the title. It makes it look uber cheesy.

Update: Oh hey, they changed the cover so the heart isn't around the words anymore. Much better.

If I Should Die is the heart-stopping and heart-pounding final conclusion to the Revenants series by the very talented, Amy Plum. It's action packed plot and wildly romantic story-line will leave you spinning breathlessly till the very last page.
Fresh, tender and passionate, this has been one gorgeous series to loss your heart to. It will be missed!

I would say this was a delightful end to this series. When I first started rereading the series this month I thought it was boring and didn’t think that it was up to all the hype that I originally gave it a few years ago. But, as I read each book I would say the story got even more better in the writing got better as well. So when I say that this is a good ending to this book it is actually true.

Just finished 'Until I Die' and how does Amy expect us to wait so long after such a heart wrenching cliff hanger?

Finally read it!


I have a bit of mixed feelings about this one. I loved it but there were certain scenes that kind of made me roll my eyes a bit. And unlike the previous two, I was able to put this book down half way through and not pick it up again for a day (which is usually unheard of for me lol)

NORMAL OBSERVATION:the cover is great, but i kinda wish it was a single bold color like book one or two.
NOT SO NORMAL: why in Gods name is this book coming out in 2013? and did anyone see the suspense in the last book? is she trying to kill us? *screaming at the computer* really? not even a plot.
*pulls hair out* it better not be something like Kate and Jules cause i will rip this book apart so fast my paper shredder would be amazed.*screams running out the door like a crazed person*

If Vincent isn't alive I don't think I'll be able to make it through life. It is completely unfair to make you fall THAT in love with him and then to just tear him away. The least you could have done is give him some kind of fault so that his death wasn't so completely unfair.

4.5 Champion stars!

Holy hell! That was one unbelievable conclusion to such a unique and unforgettable trilogy! I absolutely loved this book! Though there were some things that bothered me that happened and a few things I wished would have happened that didn't. But overall it wasn't enough to keep me from almost rating it a full 5 stars. Wait, I mean I would've given it 5 complete top-notched stars...except for a few things:

4.5 stars. Kate is a very, very cool and tough girl. I love reading about her. Drawbacks are the - for me - sometimes slightly too cheesy romance between her and Vincent and the occasionally too high predictability of the story. Still, the plot kept me on my toes anyway, the atmosphere was great and the characters all stayed dear to me.

Thank you so much, Amy!! Especially for one of the 'endings', which fulfilled a wish of mine. I leave this world with a pleasantly mushy heart: Aching a little,

I read Die for me at the end of 2011 and I fell in love with it. Head over heals kind you could say for 2 days,I was looking forward to the next part a lot. But then Until I die came out and I was disappointment sourly so I had high hopes and they were crushed. But still I looked forward to If I should die because I wanted to see what would happen to Vincent and how it would all pan out, I'm assuming you all know what I'm talking about as you are reading the last books review.

IF I Should Die is the last book in the Revenants trilogy. Being a huge fan after reading Die For Me, I couldn’t wait to have that final copy in my hands and find out how this journey was going to end. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Vincent and the other revenents I had come to love. Of course I loved this story, but there were a few things that kept me at a 4.5 snowflake rating. The predictability was somewhat a hindrance. I love to be kept guessing, but when the storyline feels s ...more

Loooooove. Omg Plum doesn't disappoint in any kind of way. It was WAY more than I expected and I was truly on e edge of my seat with a huge smile plastered on my face in parts, in others sobbing and trying not to scream.

Kate is by far the most amazing in this book. Nothing is going to get in her way of saving Vincent, if there is even a slight chance of something to do she is going to do it no matter what. She puts everyone above herself and will do whatever it takes to save and protect the ones

Well it's the last in a breathtaking paranormal romance series and it ends with a bang. This is the spoiler free part of my review because I want to reflect on my favourite and iconic bits of this book later on and delve into detail about all of the characters I've grown to love.
The plot is fast-paced with very rarely a dull moment and it is still the tale of deep love, fulfilling friendship and great loyalty that I have come to expect.
