Die for Me - Amy Plum

Die for Me (Revenants, #1)Series: Revenants #1
Release date: 2011
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

This book has an amazing, dead - gorgeous cover! The colours, the girl, the dress, it just has it all! Still the story didn't appeal to me. I don't like zombie books or movies, so it took me a very long time to pick this book up. I'm really glad I did! Not only is the cover amazing, the story is good. Not amazing, but good enough to keep me reading and picking up the second book in the series. The concept, the way the undead where lay out, was truly unique and intriguing. I really liked the descriptions of the Paris settings, very romantic and gorgeous. It gave extra charm to this story. Also it was a refreshing change from the usual high school setting. There was talk about art, museums and Cafe's and ofcourse the house of Vincent. Kate is the main character and I really liked that she thought everything through, she was not just some stupid teenager who rushed into things. The thought about the consequences before making a decision. She was smart, strong and just real. Vincent, gosh what can I say about him. He's this hot mysterious guy, very sexy with a french accent and really sweet. The romance between the two of them isn't a love at first sight thing, it's growing and just so sweet. The end was good two and I immidiately picked up the second book in this serie. Overall, Die for me is a great book with a unique concept about the undead and romantic scenes.
