If I Should Die by Amy Plum

Rating: ★★★★½

Summary from Goodreads.com: 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?

I’ve mentioned before how rare it is that there is a series where I enjoy every single one of the books just as much as the previous one.  This series is one of those.  I gushed in my reviews of Die For Me and Until I Die and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one.  (I also have to mention how gorgeous the covers are for this series!).  I did approach If I Should Die with some apprehension as often times the ending of a series can leave you unsatisfied but that was not the case here.

For those who haven’t read Until I Die yet let me just say something happened that I just couldn’t believe and seeing how that was resolved in this book was flipping amazing!  I wasn’t sure if Amy Plum was going to force a resolution that wouldn’t quite fit just to satisfy readers but the way she did it will entrance readers even more.

Kate has been pretty darn kick ass in the previous books and continues that development in this book but I must also say her sister, Georgia, has come a long way from book 1.  I thought she was a fun but flighty character who served as a foil for Kate but she definitely has come into her own and I love her.

My heart was breaking for my other favorite character, Jules.  It is so obvious how in love he is with Kate but that she and Vincent have eyes only for each other.  I am really hoping he gets a story of his own some day.

There are parts of the story that are pretty predictable but that doesn’t take away from the enjoyment I got in reading this book.  If you have not read this series yet I highly recommend it!

    I’ve only read the first book in the series, do not know if I’m going to read any of the other. Book one was okey, but there was something about the book that did not caught my interest completely.

    I really liked the first book in this series but have yet to read on. I must remedy that.
