I wish she wouldn't be so docile, after being so feisty.  I bet she has a plan and is playing a game but I really want her to Wack these moles !

Until the Beginning - Amy Plum Knowing the history taught her was filled with lies and truth, Juno does the unthinkable for a YA character. She uses her brain and decides to find her own truth. Omg what ? A thinking girl who is not ruled by hormonal driven lust first above all other actions ??!?!?! I like her, really like her. I am so glad I am back in this series. :D

"I know, "I've changed…I'm like Juneau and her people now, all yar-a-fied and immortal and shit…"
Until the Beginning - Amy Plum

Book Title:  Until the Beginning

Author:  Amy Plum

Narration:  Emily Rankin & Graham Hamilton

Series:  After the End #2 of 2

Genre:  Young Adult, Paranormal Romance

Source:  Audiobook (Library)


Theme Song (My Pick):  Gaia Healing Earth's Frequency by WaveSource


…and this, he (Miles) told to the bird…(disclaimer, I may not have spelled things incorrectly in that quote, because it was taken directly from Audio…)



  • Plot: 3.8/5 --Almost moves along too quickly, left me wondering what was missing.  I think it just lacked depth for me.  It dealt with deep subjects, but in an un-deep way.
  • Characters: 4/5 --The good guys are cool, funny and true to themselves.  But the bad guys were lacking, almost like they weren't all that bad, just sort of pathetic.  Seriously, Poe is my favorite character, and he's a bird**.  Coolest crow ever…
  • The Feels: 3.5/5
  • Theme: 4.5/5
  • Flow: 3.5/5
  • Backdrop (World Building): 3.3/5
  • Originality: 4/5 --I thought the titles for this duology were very clever.
  • Book Cover: 5/5
  • Sex Factor: Yes, but not explicit.  As far as YA goes…this feels more Y than A…but tries to play at being more A.
  • Narration: 4/5 --Good, but not Wow good.
  • Ending: 4.3/5 --A sweetly satisfying ending.  Maybe a little too sweet…  Cliffhanger:  No


Will I read more from this Author?  Meh.




When Juneau's clan disappeared, she lost so much more than her friends and family. She soon discovered everything she thought she knew about her life was a lie. Her people's gifts were actually secret abilities that others wanted, desperately enough to kidnap an entire village.

Juneau and her new companion Miles's cross-country journey to find her clan has led them to a game preserve in New Mexico. Now Juneau's people are finally within reach, and she will stop at nothing to save them. But she has a target on her back too, because unbeknownst to her she is the key to unlocking everything. To rescue her people - and herself - Juneau must discover what she, and her abilities, are truly capable of.



Classified as a dystopian, it only delves into actually being one.  It's more a spiritual journey for Juneau and Miles.  When you think of it that way, it's actually an all right story.  Overall, it was interesting, and even though it felt rushed, I'm ultimately glad it wasn't super long.


**I actually don't like birds, it all started when I worked 3rd shift and I would be trying to sleep and they were always chirping...I truly believe they are just rodents with wings.

Tolles Buch *-*
Von der Nacht verzaubert (Die for Me #1) - Ulrike Brauns,Amy Plum
 Als Kate Merciers Eltern bei einem tragischen Unfall sterben, zieht sie zusammen mit ihrer Schwester Georgia zu den Großeltern nach Paris. Jede versucht auf ihre eigene Weise, ihr altes Leben und ihre schmerzvollen Erinnerungen hinter sich zu lassen. Während Georgia sich in das Nachtleben stürzt, sucht Kate Zuflucht in ihren Büchern – bis sie eines Tages Vincent trifft, der es schafft, ihren Schutzpanzer zu durchbrechen. Bei Spaziergängen entlang der Seine und durch die spätsommerlichen Gassen von Paris beginnt Kate, sich in ihn zu verlieben – nur um kurze Zeit später zu erfahren, dass Vincent ein Revenant ist. Die Liebe der beiden steht unter einem schlechten Stern: Vincent und seine Freunde sind in einen jahrhundertealten Kampf gegen eine Gruppe rachsüchtiger Revenants verstrickt. Schnell begreift Kate, dass ihr Leben niemals wieder sicher sein wird, wenn sie ihrem Herzen folgt.
„Von der Nacht verzaubert“ ist der erste Band einer Trilogie.
 Ein tolles Buch, spannend von der ersten Seite zieht es in den Bann um die Geschichte von Kate und den Revenant Vincent.Amy Plum hat eine tolle Geschichte erschaffen, man hat das Gefühl in Paris zu sein so toll hat sie die Orte und gerade die Cafés beschrieben. Die Story selber rund um die Revenant war für mich selber schon interessant, öfters hab ich von ihnen nur Oberflächig gelesen aber nun weiß ich warum es wirklich geht.
Auch war alleine ein Plus Punkt das es immer nicht gleich in einem Buch mit viel Liebe, rosa Wolken und das ach so Perfekte Liebesleben laufen muß um die Leute am Buch zu halten, gerade in dem Buch müssen Kate und Vincent viel einstecken und überlegen ob sie ihre Zukunft verbringen.

Revenant ist ein verstorbener Mensch der immer wieder anderen Hilft und ihnen das Leben rettet um selber zu sterben. Sie opfern sich um Menschen zu retten. Wenn sie sterben fangen sie immer wieder bei dem Alter an zu 'leben' wo sie als erstes gestorben sind, so ist Vincent immer 1 Jahre alt. Aber Kate muß lernen das er 3 Tage im Monat ruht, dann ist er wie tot nur sein Geist geht mit den anderen Revenant auf Streife um die Numa so heißen deren Feinde abzuhalten Menschen zu töten. So ist es ein Kampf um die Liebe, gut und böse und eine menge neue Freunde.

Ich freue mich auf Band 2 viel möchte ich als Rezi nicht verraten weil ich wüsste gar nicht wo ich anfangen sollte und so wäre das ganze Buch verraten ;)

A new take on the supernatural
Die for Me - Amy Plum

The creatures in these books are not ones I am familiar with and that can be a risky thing for an author, as it can be easier to stick to those monster we love more, vampires, witches, werewolves etc. Moving away from the familiar can sometimes be disastrous, but this is a fantastic triumph.
I found it extremely easy to identify with the main character Katie, as I am sure most people will be able to. She's fragile, yet plucky and the poor girl just can't catch a beak, something I think we've all felt a one time or another.
I'm not much of a romance fan, I like a good story line, if romance is part of it then fair enough, but romance and sloppy stuff is not really my thing. I was dubious about this as Vincent seems to fall so quickly, but without giving too much away. I think once we discover his past it seems plausible.

Being set in Paris there is some beautiful imagery weaved by Amy Plum, I have never been to Paris, but felt like I was there and I would not be surprised if many people did not make the trip after reading this book.
All in all a good read and highly recommended.
