[Review] Until I Die by Amy Plum

Before I actually begin this review, I'm going to inform you that I recieved this book via First Reads on Goodreads :D

Summary: Kate and Vincent have overcome the odds and at last they are together in Paris, the city of lights and love.

As their romance deepens there’s one question they can’t ignore: How are they supposed to be together if Vincent can’t resist sacrificing himself to save others? Although Vincent promises that he’ll do whatever it takes to lead a normal life with Kate, will that mean letting innocent people die? When a new and surprising enemy reveals itself, Kate realizes that even more may be at stake—and that Vincent’s immortality is in jeopardy.

Anything highlighted in white is a spoiler.

In General: 
The book was pretty good- better than the first one. Or at least that's my opinion. The plot was less of a "will they get together" this time, which was cool. It was also a lot less Twilight-like (no offense to any Twilight lovers), but a bit predictable, especially near the end. I've seen this type of writing before, when the villain is the one person the main character is staunchly supporting. So. On to the broken-up review.

Regarding the Plot:
The plot was really cool this time. A bunch of the numa were trying to get the Revenants' "champion" (Vincent). So now they're all protecting Vincent (who at the same time is doing something dangerous so that he could fight the compulsion to die and stay with Kate). There were some things *AHEM the gu√©risseurs* that weren't quite wrapped up, but I guess they'll be wrapped up in the next book.

Regarding the Characters:
Meh. The main characters were pretty much the same except for Gaspard (weapons master) who we go to see more of and Kar who was getting weapons training and was less wimpy.
Right. A warning. Kate decides she wants to have sex with Vincent (although it does not happen in this book...)

Also a lot of romantic, gushy stuff, although less than the last book.

Cover Reveal!

The cover for the sequel to Legend by Marie Lu has come out :D

It looks like this:
Prodigy by Marie Lu

The Elector Primo of the Republic has died, with his son assuming power over what's left of the USA's West Coast as it teeters on full-blown chaos.

In order to help, though, the rebels want June and Day to kill the new Elector, who may be a step up from his dad.

Such a long time to wait! But I'm sure it'll be worth it, because Legend was amazing. If you haven't read Legend you should read it immediately!!
