Book Review: Until I Die by Amy Plum + Giveaway

Until I Die
Revenants #2
Author: Amy Plum
Reading Level: YA
Genre: Paranormal
Release Date: May 8th 2012
Review Source: Harper TEEN
Available: Amazon

Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

I know many of us partially died when we finished Die for Me, because of the long wait for Until I Die. So  when I got an ARC copy I pretty much died again with happiness. Seems only fitting for a book that the main characters are all not alive. Just like I mentioned when I read Die for Me, I can't believe how much I love a zombie series. I do love though that here they are Revenants and not Zombies. Makes it sounds all that much regal. Amy wrote this sequel like I think a sequel is meant to be. We learn more about the Revenants and their history. The characters are develop more and we visit more of Paris in Until I Die. 

Until I Die slows the story down a bit. It gives us the reader time to simmer the new developments that begin and continue to happen. Kate and Vincent are happy as can be. Kate thoughts though are always on their future together and how it will play out. Will Vincent be able to resist his nature and not die for anyone? Will they be able to grow old together without him suffering. These thought are pretty fresh in he rmind due to the fact that one of the revenants just lost this human partner from old age. So Kate sees how heard it has hit and wonders if Vincent will deal the same. She is determined to find a solution for Vincent. Vincent on the othe hand is practicing something that supposedly will help him and his need to die. Even though Vincent looks like its killing I'm if you can call it that, he is detrained to see it though. Little do they know that that is a small part in a big conspiracy against the Revenants. 
New house guests move in that are practically the oldest Revenants in Paris. They are what we call old school. Kate has mixed feelings about them and just when she beings to trust in one, they throw a flip on her. Kate's sister even gets deeper involved in the world of the living dead. The Nova have been quite since their leaer was killed in Die for Me, seems they are planning something pretty big. Well when the cards are finally placed on the table, big was an understatement. The plan was Epic and that it worked is what shocks us. Prepare yourself for an ending that will shock the socks off your feet.

I wish I could do like the Revenants sometime when I have to wait for the next book in a series. I would like to be dormant and not feel, so I won't suffer waiting on the next book. I know I want If I Should Die in my hands already but at the same time I won't want it to end. 
Make sure to follow the Until I Die blog tour that begins on 4/21. Its hosted by Mundie Moms and our stop is on 5/1 with our interview with Vincent.
