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

Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
Nothing makes me quite so happy as spending time with characters I love. I fully expected Until I Die to suffer from the middle book syndrome but, despite a few symptoms that were obviously present, Amy Plum managed to make the most of it. Of course it wasn’t as eventful as Die for Me, and I’m sure If I Should Die, the last book of the trilogy, will be much more exciting, but Until I Die was a satisfying read in every way.

Until I Die, the second book in the Revenants series, is very much a middle book, but we do learn tons more about the Revenant lore in addition to greater character development. And of course, we still have the beautiful Paris setting.

Oriented towards the Revenant lore, we're plunged deeper into their background and history in this sequel. I was very interested in Amy Plum's unique zombie lore from the beginning, so I was happy to get some more details on these unusual beings. Even though there

This was a good sequel, although it did leave us with a cliff-hanger ending.

I liked Kate and Vincent in this, and it was nice that they were able to work past the whole revenant thing, and be together as a couple anyway.

The storyline in this was about Vincent and Kate both looking for other ways for Vincent to not die, and we had some new characters in the story as well. We also had news of a champion, and further problems with the numa.

The ending to this was quite action-packed, although we we

I'm sorry, but this book was just plain boring. It was more than halfway through the book before we saw any action. Even then, it was really short-lived. We don't see any action again until near the end. And the villain was too predictable - partly because the book was so uneventful, and I never trusted the villain even from the start because the villain was too perfect. So yeah, I didn't really care for the story here.

As for Vincent and Kate, their relationship was really boring. I know, I know

Amy plum took the second installment to some seriously interesting places!! Looking forward to #3.
So, I quite liked Die for Me. I thought it was sweet and fun and gently subversive. Until I Die, on the other hand, is a mess. The thing is, I feel a little guilty for complaining, because it seems like Amy Plum's trying to infuse all of the 'good romance' bits into her story, but somehow it's not working. There's a lot of telling about how Kate is whole without Vincent, but he completes her, etc, etc, but that's all it is - telling. The showing is all about them kissing and cuddling and kissing ...more

Die For Me was an unexpectedly good ride for me. I gave it two stars at the time, but eventually it crept up to 3.5, just because it reminds me of this really weird sesame cookie I tried lately that tasted weird, and that I should have hated, but actually ended up really liking. Is that an awful metaphor? Meh, probably. But it's really late and I'm super hungry.

Until I Die teeters on a sharp precipice, swaying to and fro between my love and my...mild dislike. I don't hate anything ab

Oh sweet goodness, how I loved this book!

In the first novel, Die For Me, it was the romantic Paris setting and idea of revenants — undead beings with the compulsion to die to save others — that captivated me. The idea was completely unique and executed with perfection, but even though I loved the characters with all my heart, I was never really sold on the romance.

But in Until I Die, somehow Amy Plum managed to make everything more intense, more lovable, mo

Seriously??? We've got to wait a WHOLE YEAR to find out what happens????!!!! I honestly don't think I can survive it!!

Yes, you guessed it... Until I Die ended on one heckuva cliffhanger... and I normally despise those dreaded things. I have always felt that if an author's writing is THAT good -- and Amy Plum's is THAT good -- they don't need one to entice the reader to come back. That was very true with Amy's f
I am completely head over heals for this series! The world of Revenants has both fascinated and intrigued me. I now wish that I lived in a world with hot undead guys.

In Die For Me, Kate meets Vincent and finds out his most terrifying secret. He is a Revenant - an undead with the duty to help people and die for them. In Until I Die, Kate and Vincent are trying to find a way of being together without Vincent's urge to die for someone. Vincent has to make sacrifices and Kate has to go behind his ba
I was blessed to receive an ARC of this book, and now have written this spoil-free review for anyone interested. Until I Die most definitely surpassed Amy’s first book, Die For Me. At least I think so. I love reading new, upcoming authors and watching how their writing grows and flourishes over time—one see’s it all the time, i.e. J.K. Rowling, Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, and Terry Goodkind to name a few. And Amy is no exception to this; there are beautiful metaphors, rich descriptions, and we ...more

I am so far behind! I read this book back in March and have not gotten around to writing a review. I guess it's a good thing life was too crazy to read much last month or I may never get caught up on my reviews.

I love this series. I don't think it has got the hype it deserves. Great setting, beautiful cover, well written, fabulous characters and clean enough that I don't have to put a big disclaimer if I recommend it.

I love the Revenants lore/world that the author created. Can't wait to see how

Reviewer's Note: At the onset, it became apparent I wasn't the right person for reviewing this book. But 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 One Fan (APNOF) and occasionally Insane Amy Plum Fan (IAPF).

This would be my first comeback review after a long reading and reviewing hiatus.
I’ve got Until I Die as an ARC and was dying to get my hands on it because the first book left me begging for more.

First off, I would like to emphasize that I love Ms. Plum. I love the way she writes and her creative way in making the dead so hot. :)

Didn't like the first book much so I was probably not going to read this any time soon anyway, now I don't know if I care to read more of this author ever, regardless of my feelings about the first one.

So very tired of all of this. So very tired.

Until I Die really surprised me. And in a good way. It didn’t suffer from “second book” syndrome! You know what I mean. In the first book our hero and heroine are working do hard to be together and then they finally get to at the end. Only to find some sort of unobtainable obstacle in book two that pushes them apart.

I kept waiting for that to happen in book Until I Die… and it didn’t. Well not really. Sure Vincent and Kate had their share of struggles, but they were together. They might have bee

Honestly, I'm highly disappointed in Until I Die. It was extremely hard to get through this book. I think it took me at least a month to finish it. I kept putting it down after each and every chapter. I felt like Until I Die was a completely different book from Die for Me.I really wish I could've liked it but I didn't. There were things in this book that were just too dull and predictable. I became uninterested in the story within the first couple chapters, but I kept going til the end hoping th ...more

I'm so mad right now. I really didn't enjoy this book, at all. But I struggled through it because I really enjoyed Die for Me and hoped that the third book will be better. I only started to enjoy this at the very end, and then it ends on a massive cliffhanger. grrr

Well, it took me five days to get through this book and I think that speaks volumes. I really struggled with Until I Die, a book I had been really looking forward to reading, having absolutely loving Die for Me.

This didn’t work for me and that’s even with more of the revenant/ numa aspect explained. Too much of it revolved around Kate and Vincent together and them figuring out a way to make their time together longer/easier/more bearable for one or both of them. If the first book had me remarking on how absolutely ordinary she came across, that is sometimes pissed off but normally thinking and wary… here Kate’s less of what she was back then. Here, she’s all 'coquettish' and flirty with Vincent. And I ...more

It has been years since I’ve read this series. And I truly see how I’ve grown as a reader.

This wasn’t a bad book. Actually I loved it before, but I see the flaws in this series clear as day making me think it’s an ok read overall.

The suspense kills me at times, while the plot is inherently predictable too. That in and of itself is indeed One of the biggest flaws of this book. The intensity in the plot came near the end. Why it took an entire book to get to a climax of a book is
3.5 Stars

It was okay. I won't be reading the last book in the series. I don't regret using a credit to buy this audio, but I know I won't be buying/reading the last book in the series.

I liked that the sisters liked each other, but Georgia always getting in trouble and acting like a party girl got on my nerves. She was always hot for someone and her fake southern accent - not sure why anyone wanted her around. I don't understand how her grandparents allowed her party behavior.

I like Until I Die every bit as much I liked Die For Me, though a little less this time. For me, I feel like Until I Die is a middle book, and although it didn't quite disappoint me much like other sequels love to do to me these days, I feel like Amy Plum abandoned all of the magic and enchantment of DFM that made it memorable. I will say, though, that Until I Die has redeeming qualities and, in lots of ways, is better than DFM. I love the world of Amy Plum, complete with a fun and new kind of s ...more
