Review Time: "Until I Die: The Revenants" by Amy Plum

I've got a book review for you today! Enjoy... But first, the Goodreads blurb for the second book in Amy Plum's Revenants Series:
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.
Now on to the review:
This is a fine second book in a trilogy. I have to say the first book was the best, but what introduction book to a series isn't the best? I found the plot to be satisfactory and was well paced, giving away a little bit of information here and a little bit more there. I was well pleased with the climax of the story and definitely wasn't expecting the turn of events.

Amy Plum truly knows the city of Paris. Even though I have been to the beautiful city of love, I felt as though I truly was there, taking in the aroma and the atmosphere. She did a fantastic job setting up the scene in such an epic city. I'm biased with my love affair with Paris, though. Sigh.

I still loved the characters and felt as though they all were given ample differences to set them apart from the rest. And of course, I can't help but fall in love with the, well, love story between Kate and Vincent. They twirl me in circles and place a happy smile upon my lips. I felt trueness to their relationship that I really haven't felt in a book before. Truly remarkable writing, in my opinion.

The end of the book sets up the third book nicely. I can't wait until I can delve into its pages, or rather audio book narrative.

I'd highly recommend this book and the Revanants first book in the series. Enjoy!
