Die For Me is Amy Plum's paranormal debut novel, set in the city of lights, Paris. Since Anna And The French Kiss, I'll pick up any YA set in France.

a notorious swirly hater.
It also suffers from what I've heard referred to as 'Twilight syndrome', where almost nothing happens for most of the book, and then the complication is tacked onto the end. Though, to be fair, it at least hinted at what was coming (eg. Kate meeting the villain about half way in, and having a weird feeling about him).
Die For Me was, overall, pretty light. I didn't think the writing style was bad, but it wasn't great. The chemistry/relationship between Vincent and Kate wasn't bad, but wasn't great. The plot wasn't bad, but wasn't great. It felt pretty average to me - enjoyable, but not enthralling.
In short, I had mixed feelings about this book, but the premise was interesting and I'm curious to see where the rest of the series goes.
I give Die For Me a 3 out of 5.
