Until I Die Again (Our Souls to Keep #2)
Until I Die Again (Our Souls to Keep #2) - Gary A. Caruso I would like to thank the author for providing with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

In the first book of this series, Our Souls to Keep, we met Wake, a trained soul collector. In that book, Wake was given a job that he couldn't come to terms with. In this book, Wake is struggling even more. He has a physical and mental burden he is dealing with and when it seems that nothing good will come out of it, things start changing.

This book started strong and just kept on moving throughout it's entirety. The first book had set up everything nicely that the reader comes into this one being able to just keep on going, without the need of explanation. The transition of the two books makes this one even better than the first. I found myself hoping that Wake would get what he wanted, even though he's not exactly the boy next door.

This is a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, wanting to know immediately what was going to happen next. The torture endured, the emotional pain, felt so real. It was heartbreaking many times. So many emotions in this book, from one level through the rest, it really pulled me in.

I recommend this book for readers who like reading about Satan's damned and the battle between good and evil, that goes on even when it's thought that the fight was already lost

Until I Die
Until I Die - Amy Plum

It’s clearly been too long since I read book 1. I was having trouble to remember what had happened and who was who…
This was easy, quick read and I liked it. I like that it’s situated in Paris, France, which is a nice change.

Until I Die by Amy Plum
Until I Die - Amy Plum

After finishing Die for Me I was very enthusiastic about revenants and this series. Until I Die didn't live up to my expectations, although it's by no means a bad book.

Kate can't handle Vincent dying, so they are both trying to find ways to stop his urge to save people. They both go on a different path, not wanting to give the other hope in case it ends up being a false lead. 

The biggest problem Until I Die had is that it's such an in-between read. It doesn't feature much of a plot, except the couple trying to work around Vincent's dying urges. Which I thought was so strange - why does Kate care that Vincent dies? The guy gets up after a day or so. If you become alive after dying, does that really count as being dead? My definition of dead is that it's something final and irreversible. Dead is dead, and they will never come back. Vincent will always come back unless he is killed by numa, but just dying to save people is his job. Kate's objections against Vincent's dying didn't ring true to me. 

People that love romance should read the Revenants series. Vincent is probably one of the most perfect book boyfriends you're going to encounter. Instead of just hanging around at home, he takes Kate to the opera, art galleries, and picnicking. Their romance is close and smoochy and filled with kisses. In this case it was a big "it's not you, it's me" kind of thing. There is nothing essentially wrong with their romance - I'm sure plenty of readers will love this. It was just too close, too clingy for me. I'm not a big romance reader anyway, so if the couple is worried about how one of them will die and the other will live for ever after five months of being in a relationship, I just shake my head. Everyone that loves a "meant to be" kind of romance, you will get your fill from Amy Plum.

We get some more insight into the world of Revenants in this book, and it basically sets the scene for the third and final book in the trilogy, If I Should Die. The book ends on a big whomper of a cliffhanger, so make sure you have part three nearby! Until I Die is a decent YA paranormal romance in the tradition ofTwilight, I'm just afraid Vincent isn't my kind of guy.

Needs more action!
Until I Die - Amy Plum

I absolutely loved the first one. I loved Vincent so much and he instantly became a book crush. Both he and Kate made a great couple, and although they had the chemistry going on, their relationship sort of went in the way of the overall plot.

 

The plot had great potential and it was just as exciting as the first book. I loved the idea of the Revenants, and Kate managed to develop into a stronger character (remember the middle finger incident? haha!). My favorite characters still are Jules and Vincent. Their personalities are likable and I’m glad they haven’t changed a bit.

 

Although the book was a good one, there were quite a full lulls throughout the story, and as mentioned before, Kate and Vincent’s romance marred it. Don’t get me wrong, I love them both together, they had wonderful chemistry and a great romance, but I don’t want to read their sappy one liners, and how much they love being in each other’s company. I want the plot to keep going, I want to see the action, I want to see what next suspenseful thing is coming next. But I’m stuck reading on love and kissing scenes. Not quite what I had in mind. On top of that, the action really happens in the last 50 pages. So it felt as if time was wasted.


So, it’s worth a read because it’s the second in the series, but I’m hoping the third will be better. A little less on the sappy romance, more action on more Revenants please!
