Die for Me

By Selane @SummerEllenLane
Die for Me
Kate is living in France with her sister and grandparents. Why? She's running away from a tragedy: the death of her parents. She's been to France before and she adores it. But now she's depressed and hardly ever even hits the roaring nightlife of Paris with her big sister Georgia. Just when she thinks she can't get any further into her sour mood, guess who shows up? You got it. A suave French boy with a big secret. He's immortal. And while he and his friends are all immortal, they do their best to use their immortality to keep people from dying. But wait. There's another type of immortals. And those guys try to kill people because negative energy gives them power. So the big question is...can Kate handle all of this death and craziness to be with one awesome guy?

Interesting story. Interesting setting - I totally loved the fact that Kate lived in Paris. I also loved her sister, Georgia, the little house they lived in, and the awesome street cafes that Kate was always spending her time at. What I didn't love was the fact that Vincent's (Kat's love interest) immortality was so complicated. Him and all of his friends are "undead," and referred to several times as "zombies." Yes, I know it was fantasy and I should suck it up and get over it. But I found it hard to get into. And to be honest, there was some serious lack of tension. I many times is Kate going to shut herself up her room because she's sad? How many times is she going to cry? Here's the thing: when you're writing about a character who is understandably dark because of depression and whatnot, you don't want the reader to come away feeling depressed, too. For a lot of the book I felt like a little raincloud was hovering above my head. But I'm not shortsighted, and I hate to be a downer when it comes to novels. This is only how I felt about the book. A lot of people love it.

Ah, Paris.
