Book Description

5 May 2011 Die for Me (Book 1)

My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.

Suddenly, my sister, Georgia and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.

Mysterious, sexy and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies. . .immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.

Kate and her sister Georgia move to Paris after the death of their parents, to stay with their grandparents. They both deal with their grief in opposite but realistic ways. Kate retreats into herself, whilst Georgia goes out, keeping up her party girl lifestyle from New York. This was a really interesting part of the story for me, because Amy Plum managed to describe these two pretty standard coping mechanisms without them seeming cliche or OTT, which I thought was very clever. Georgia's character was also very stereotypical, but done in a way that it to wasn't at all cliche, and you really liked her and sympathised with her even though it would have been really easy for her to be mis-written slightly and hated.

Kate eventually gets pushed by Georgia and her 'Mamie' to start going out more, and so begins to visit museums and read outside cafes, in very typical Paris fashion. I loved all the descriptions of the cafes and art galleries etc that Kate visits, they were all done very well, it gave you a really vivid snapshot of Paris, without feeling like Amy Plum was driving home the point that she'd set her book somewhere different, which I liked. Cue Vincent, the love interest. What I liked about this book the most was Kate's reaction to Vincent. It was so realistic. She was obviously attracted to his good looks, but at the same time she was wary enough to not go falling for him in an instant. I loved their sarcastic banter, it was a really great way to show their flirtation and the development of their relationship. In fact, I love the way Amy writes full stop, honestly I think it's fantastic, I just can't put my finger on exactly why, which I think is a good thing.

By Amber
Format:Paperback
I got this book on a bit of a whim because I liked the look of the cover, while the blurb was quite interesting and I'm usually a sucker for a bit of romance. Typically of a YA paranormal romance, it has a fairly sweet heroine and a strong, handsome hero. Untypically, it is neither about Vampires or Werewolves - a definite plus in my view because I think I've read one too many of those now. One of the book's strengths is when you discover exactly who/what Vincent is so I won't give anything away! Brownie Points for originality!

I liked Kate, the main character, a lot to start off with as she had lost both of her parents in a tragic accident and so automatically I was very sympathetic towards her. I also felt like I could relate to her in how she was independent and was content with losing herself in a book or visiting the many museums that Paris has to offer, while in contrast her sister, Georgia, was a social butterfly and a party-goer. However, as the book progressed sometimes my sympathy for Kate swayed. To be honest, I just think that she cried way too much and it was getting a bit irritating. Often she would state that she did not like to cry infront of anyone but I think by the end of the book she had cried to almost every character at some point. Also, I felt that she became a bit Bella Swan-esque in the way her life suddenly revolved around her love interest, although to be fair as her parents had both died I think she had more of an excuse to feel sorry for herself!

Vincent, her love interest was also another character I couldn't decide upon. He was very handsome and a rather sexy Frenchman and I liked his light-hearted humour and caring attitude. The only problem with him was that he didn't have a single, little imperfection!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Paranormal Read 3 May 2011
Format:Paperback
"Die For Me" is the debut novel from new author Amy Plum. The first thing I noticed was how easy to read this novel was - it sits very comfortably in the young adult paranormal genre and didn't read as a debut. The writing flows very well and I turned the pages with ease, managing to finished it in just a few hours.

"Die For Me" focuses on the life of young heroine, Kate, who has moved to Paris with her older sister Georgia, after losing their parents in an accident. Kate is naturally devastated and is finding it difficult to move on with her life. But after a while she begins to venture out into Paris, even if it's on her own, to the relief of her grandparents. While on one of her many book reading jaunts to her local cafe she meets the mysterious and beautiful Vincent...

I really liked Kate in the first half of the book, and not because she's a total bookworm like me who likes to read in the bath for hours on end, but because she's sweet, intelligent and thoughtful. Her grief of losing her parents is moving and very realistic. Unfortunately after about half way through Kate begins to lose her individuality to become a replica of so many other teenage female protagonists I've read, especially with regards to the choices she makes. The story also travels a well trodden path and Ms Plum opts for safe and predictable rather than fresh and original - a great opportunity lost in my opinion because "Die For Me" started so well.

The absence of teenage angst and bitchy school girls is refreshing, and although Kate does go to school, the story focuses on her life outside the classroom. Of course there are aspects that root it firmly in the YA forum, such as some of Kate's thoughts, feelings and decisions, and the fact that she's 16 years old.
