Book 3 (Book 1: Die for Me, Book 2: Until I die)

Novel Summation:

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?

My Thoughts:

So I found this to be an enjoyable book to end the trilogy. I like Kate a lot and she really grows. She is both smart and self sacrificing, though a bit selfish at times. I would have liked to have seen her fight some more. I saw her fate coming. Vincent’s disappearance doesn’t last long and it was to be expected that he would quickly return. Jules is perhaps my favourite male character (though I do like the sort of things Vincent’s says to Kate) and Jules was barely in the book. I felt really sorry for him and would have liked more of him. It was nice that Charlotte and Ambrose return as strong supporting characters. Charles even makes a cool appearance with a whole new crew. The story itself explores some more mythology. I didn’t like the shear amount of hindsight bias. Spoiler alert: Vincent is allowed to posses Jules so he can touch Kate and they end up kissing. Afterwards, Kate realizes that it was a bad idea. I felt so sorry for Jules, having being used like that and I thought she was being incredibly selfish in the scene. Another hindsight bias was regarding who the Champion was and how everyone reacted after the revelation and said that makes sense. Of course everything makes sense after it happens. I hope there is more stories in this universe and I would definitely recommend this trilogy.

Future Books:

There is a novella called Die for Her that is the first two books told from Jules perspective.
