In Amy Plum's sequel to Die for Me, Until I Die continues to follow Kate and Vincent on their quest for a normal life. What I loved about this book was its character development. I loved the fact that Kate grew as a character the further you read into the book. She no longer relied in Vincent to fight for her, she decided that she needed to train herself so that when the time came, she wiould be able to defend herself.

The connection between Vincent and Kate grew a lot stronger in this book, making me care for them much more than I did during the first novel. Throughout this series I have said that the secondary characters do make a difference in the perception of the book and helps readers connect more with the surroundings and the main characters themselves. And I have to day that in Until I Die, the secondary characters are amazingly well done. They are smart, sarcastic and a little flirtatious which makes for good dialogue between characters.

I am not one for cliffhangers at the end of books, I feel they only create more frustration for the reader, but the one at the end of Until I Die, I found very appropriate. Although many of you might be a little upset with the end (I will not divulge it here), I do feel that it was necessary and will be a good lead into the next book. Amy had created characters that many love and relate too, and I cannot wait for the ext book, and the next chapter in their adventure!
