Summary: (from goodreads) 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.
While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?
This book is to Die for! When a author can combine history, paranormal and romance all into one book, its a hit for me. Amy did it and very effortless it seems, because I can't find any faults or dislikes for this book. It definitely a great start to a new series. One of my favorite love stories and its I believe to be my only zombie themed book I have read, well guess what Zombies are now loved by me thanks to Amy's alluring book.
What I think was one of the highlights of the whole book is all the well described areas of Paris, you get a personal tour with Die for Me. At one point I thought Amy's characters would run into the characters from Stephanie Perkins book Anna and the French Kiss. That would have been a treat. You get history explained thoughtout scenes in the book that help understand actions and the past. I can sit here and write so many adjectives to describe how great this book is. It grip me from the beginning and it kept my heart at a rapid speed while reading each little word. I did not want to finish the book since I knew it would be a long wait for the next installment. its the kind of book you can re-read. Its Unforgettable! This book will appeal to any age bracket, even possibly the male readers as well. I truly recommend it to anyone.
