Die for Me is the first in an internationally bestselling paranormal romance series by Amy Plum. This thoroughly original young adult novel caused Booklist to proclaim, "Move over, Bella and Edward."
When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she has to leave everything behind and move to Paris to live with her grandparents. Kate knows her life will never be the same. But she has no idea how right she is…until she meets Vincent. Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix puts Kate in danger of losing her heart all over again. Especially when Kate discovers his impossible secret: Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny and enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind. And Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.
Die for Me is the first book in a trilogy rich with atmosphere and thrills. Readers will no doubt agree with New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike, who said, "I devoured this lush, mysterious romance, which delivers a refreshingly human heroine alongside a hero truly deserving of the title."
This paperback edition has extras inside. Discover some of Kate's favorite things; enjoy a sneak peek at Until I Die, the sequel to Die for Me; and more!
