Book Review: If I Should Die (Revenants #3) by: Amy Plum

Release Date: May 7, 2013
from Harper TEEN
Goodreads | Amazon

"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?"

My Thoughts:

I can’t believe I put off reading this one for so long, especially after the ending in Until I Die. This was such a great conclusion and I am so glad I finally got around to reading it. I love Kate and Vincent and I am so glad I was able to experience their story. I also want to take this second to pride myself on completely guessing where the story was going. Yay me.

Kate has definitely grown over the course of the series and I love that. She has gotten very strong and determined. She knows what she wants from her life and she is willing to do whatever she needs to get it. She is afraid, but she doesn’t let that stop her and I love that.

Then there is Vincent and guys, I figgin love him. He is like the ultimate book boyfriend with all his perfectness and I love it. It is nice to read about guys like that sometimes. He has this perfect balance of faith in Kate, but he still wants to protect her. It’s kinda cute. It’s so funny to watch him get frustrated with Kate putting herself in danger, but still knowing she has to do it. He doesn’t hold her back, but still doesn’t want her hurt.

I just love the relationship between Kate and Vincent because it is so strong. They always have faith in each other and fight for one another. There is no crazy melodrama and doubt for no reason. Also; no love triangle. I’m not opposed to love triangles, but I really just liked that the series was about these two fighting for each other and finding a way to make a life together work.

I also want to mention the secondary characters because there are so many great ones. There is Jules who I just absolutely love and my heart breaks for him. Ambrose who is just so awesome I don’t even have words. He cracks me up! Then there is Charlotte who is another one I love. I love that this series has such a strong secondary cast that you can get behind and fall in love with.

I love the paranormal aspect to this one because it’s pretty different. They are zombie like, but they aren’t really typical zombies. The revenants are just such a unique concept, especially in how they become immortal. This difference is really one of the main things that made me love this series to begin with.

If I Should Die was everything I was hoping for in this conclusion and I couldn’t have asked for more. This series has been so much fun and I was easily swept up in the romance and drama and the city of Paris. Paranormal romance fans, you need to read this one.
