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.In this incandescent debut, newcomer Amy Plum has created a powerful paranormal mythology with immortal revenants. The Paris setting comes enchantingly alive as a relentless struggle between good and evil takes place in its streets. Rich with romance, atmosphere, and thrills, Die for Me will leave readers breathlessly awaiting its sequel.

My thoughts:
This was a really good book. I liked it a lot but it just didn´t have that wow effect that I would have liked! It was a really cute love story and a little different from what I´ve read before. The characters Kate and Vincent are lovely, but Vincent can be a bit obsessive but I guess that is ok considering what he does for a living. *LoL*
There isn´t that much action in this book it is more about Kate and her problem with trusting love and trusting her heart to someone ever again. And I really like that she is cautious about her feelings and don´t just jump right into his arms which is very usual in books. It is not until the end that the action begins and I hope we will see more of that in the next book. And yes it was good enough fore me to want to read the sequel.
