Book Review: If I Should Die by Amy Plum

If I Should Die (Revenants #3) by Amy Plum
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: May 7, 2013
Publisher: Harper Teen

I will not lose another person I love. I will not let history repeat itself.

Vincent waited lifetimes to find me, but in an instant our future together was shattered. He was betrayed by someone we both called a friend, and I lost him. Now our enemy is determined to rule over France’s immortals, and willing to wage a war to get what they want.

It shouldn’t be possible, none of it should be, but this is my reality. I know Vincent is somewhere out there, I know he’s not completely gone, and I will do anything to save him.

After what we’ve already fought to achieve, a life without Vincent is unimaginable. He once swore to avoid dying—to go against his nature and forsake sacrificing himself for others—so that we could be together. How can I not risk everything to bring my love back to me?

If I Should Die is the third and final book in the Revenants Series by Amy Plum. So much happened in this book! Sooo  much! It's going to be hard to give a decent review without letting a spoiler slip, but I'm going to try. If I Should Die starts off right where Until I Die ended. We get thrust back into the action, drama, and danger that is now Kate's life. They are faced with so many impossible situations. Some I saw coming. Others? Not so much. I enjoyed getting some more Revenant history. These guys are really interesting, and I like how the story fit their history with actual people and events in our real life history. It gives the story that realistic feel. We are introduced to new kindred, and get to visit New York. My heart really goes out to Jules. He has been a favorite of mine from the beginning, and I'm anxious to get my hands on Die for Her to get Jules perspective. It may break my heart even more, but I have to read it.

I enjoyed this series completely. I'm sad to see it come to an end, but I'm happy with how it concluded, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read with some action, drama, and romance!

I could have had a love like that with Vincent. I had felt it. There had been something right about us: It was bigger than just two people in love. When we were together, it had been like one of nature’s true and rare beauties; like an impossible beam of sunlight piercing through black clouds, bathing the patch of earth before you in gold. Together, Vincent and I had created something beautiful. And, with that thought, something hardened inside me. A refusal. A rejection of the fate being shoved onto me. Even though I had no idea what form it would take, I would find a solution. Because a solution must exist.

Check out my reviews for the After the End Duology by Amy Plum!

Amy Plum is the author of the International Bestsellers DIE FOR ME (Indie Next List pick, Romance Times top pick, and recipient of a starred review from School Library Journal), UNTIL I DIE, and IF I SHOULD DIE. The books have been translated into eleven foreign languages. The trilogy is accompanied by an eNovella entitled DIE FOR HER.

Amy grew up in Birmingham, Alabama before venturing further afield to Chicago, Paris, London and New York. An art historian by training, she can be found on most days either daydreaming or writing (or both) in a Parisian café.

After being raised in Birmingham, Alabama, in a rather restrictive environment, AMY PLUM escaped to Chicago to an even more restrictive environment at a university that expelled people for dancing. (And where she was called to the dean’s office for “wearing too much black”.) After all of that restrictiveness, she was forced to run far far away, specifically to Paris, France, where she only wore black and danced all she wanted.

After five years in Paris, she ventured to London, where she got an M.A. in Medieval Art History, specializing in Early Sienese Painting (1260-1348) mainly because it promised almost no hope of finding a paying job afterward.

Amy managed to find work in the world of art and antiques in New York. But after almost a decade of high-pressure lifestyle in the Big Apple, she swapped her American city for a French village of 1300 inhabitants.

After signing with HarperCollins for the DIE FOR ME series, Amy left her job as an English professor at Tours University to write full-time. She now lives in Paris with her two kids and big red dog Ella.

She is a huge fan of Edward Gorey and Maira Kalman (and collects both of their books/art), as well as David Sedaris, Amadeo Modigliani, and Ira Glass.
