Until I Die by Amy Plum

Until I Die (Revenants, #2)
Until I Die (Revenants #2)
Author: Amy Plum
Publisher: HarperCollins
Pages: 352
Team: Is it possible to be Team Jules? Is that even an option?!
Rating: 3.5 Stars! 
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.~Goodreads

To be honest, I struggled a little getting through this one. There was a lot more information on Revenants in this installment and at times it felt a little info-dumpy (is that a real term?). Until I Die was much slower paced than Die for me, but with new characters, old nemeses, and relationship roadblocks, it was a good addition to the series nonetheless!

Kate and Vincent are a bit at odds in this book. They’re both trying to find a way to have a normal relationship where Vincent doesn’t need to sacrifice himself so often...or...um, ever. That’s all beautiful and great but then they start keeping things from each other and that is a BIG no-no in any and ALL relationships. Vamp-human relationships, mermaid-human relationships, human-human relationships annnnnd Revenant-human relationships. I really didn’t understand why they went behind each other’s backs when they’re supposed to be totally and completely in love. It really irked me.  

With that being said there were also a lot of things I loved about this book! Amy Plum delivers again when it comes to her descriptions of the Parisian setting. Some scenes I would reread because they were simply that gorgeous! Her fight scenes were also totally kick-butt! I LOVED THEM but wish there would have been some! You're holding out on us, Plum!

I also LOVED Georgia in this sequel! I don’t know if she’s necessarily in this one more than the first, but her presence shines through tenfold! There are a ton of cute snarky sister moments and I loved that she was in on the Revenant loop! Oh! And her plus newbie Arthur equal win! <3 o:p="o:p">

Then we have my Jules! *sighs* Can he please get his own spin-off? I love this boy SO MUCH. His flirty-protective-sexy self caused me to swoon hardcore. He kinda makes me wish that this series revolved not only around Revenants but a love triangle as well! And I am not a fan of those buuuuuuut I’m still holding out for Jules/Kate make out sesh! :P

With plenty of twists, not nearly enough kisses and a SHOCKING (and I mean devastatingly shocking) ending, Until I Die is a slow-paced but captivating sequel! I can’t wait to find out what happens in If I Should Die, the final book in the Revenants trilogy!

    1. If Jules can't be with me, then i'd like him to be with Kate! ;)
