Jules is too perfect. I loved being inside his head and seeing what he thought throughout the series. I feel bad for him though because he needs to be loved! Jules, if you existed, I would love you haha. *sigh* I hope things work out for him in the end and he finds somebody else. Kate doesn't deserve him (and honestly Kate and Vincent are perfect for each other. No doubt about it.)

But what I loved about this novella is that unlike other novellas this basically recapped the whole series for us be

Here's something which goes inside Jules head:
"The more Kate’s in our lives, the more I find myself falling for her.
The more I see her, the more I want her around.
It’s a vicious cycle, and it’s making me crazy."

This is a great novella that follows on from books 1 and 2 of the Revenants series. It is from the POV of Vincent’s flirty, womanising best friend, Jules, as he comes to the realisation that he is in love with his best friend’s girl.

“I’m falling for Kate. How could I? My best friend is in love with her. And she with him. You must never let them know - the words sizzle through my mind, and I feel like I am bleeding internally.”

I loved getting to see this side of Jules! I suspected that he had f

This wasnt really a #2.5 like I thought it would be. It didnt take place after book 2. It was the story of books 1 and 2, quickly and briefly retold in Jules' POV, and focusing mostly on the scenes between Jules and Kate. It was pretty heart-wrenching. Sometimes unrequited love is the most epic. I wish he had someone to share his pain with though. Maybe he should tell Charlotte, since she is in a similar situation with Ambrose. Maybe they could empathize with each other. I feel so sorry for them ...more

I have to confess that I LOVE Jules - well, I did, before I read this novella. I always liked Jules' character, charming, charismatic, loyal and witty with a great sense of humor that always left a smile on my face. So I was excited when I heard there was going to be a novella about him. And then, I found out what it was going to be about.

I'm sorry, but I've never been a big fan of Kate. She was always such a blah character, and I couldn't stand her in the second book because she was so difficul

“We’re not Boy Scouts,” I reminded him the third time. “We’re not here on earth to help little old ladies across the street. No one’s threatening to harm her, and she’s not going to commit suicide.”

I loved this, every single moment, I loved the recap of Die for Me and Until I Die in Jules POV. It was a bit scary though. It all started with him trying to warn Vincent from falling for the-sad-girl and it ended up with Jules himself liking her and then his liking grew to something much much more. L

Well, that was a waste.

For those of you going into this thinking there's going to be new and exciting material for you to read about, I'm sorry to have to be the one to inform you that you're mistaken.

This was like a Sparknotes of the first book, except from Jule's POV. It added nothing new to the series, other than reminding us of the fact that he's in a sadly one-sided love triangle. The dialogue was the same, the though processes were the same, EVERYTHING WAS THE SAME EXCEPT FOR THE NARRATOR.

You choose friendship.

I'm happy that I've discovered this novella. I've read this trilogy I while ago and Jules' story always left me bittersweet. He was my favourite character and deserved so much more. Seeing scenes from the books through his eyes was both heartwarming and heartbreaking.
Annie Brewer
So this was wonderful. I loved being inside Jules' head. Even though it was heartbreaking at times, you really get to see a side to him that he rarely shows from Kate's pov. I always loved his character. His asshat sarcasm but really sweet and charming side. He's protective of Kate and puts his feelings aside for Vincent. He's loyal and selfless. I really felt bad for him. Jules deserves love too and I really hope Amy gives him a happy ending. Somehow.

But I really loved seeing the first two boo

i love jules, i really do, but this novella was just really unnecessary. it added absolutely nothing to the story and was only good as a short recap of book 1 and 2 from jules’ perspective. meh.

I didn't think it was possible for me to love Jules any more than I already did.

There is a song I kept thinking about while reading this, Radiohead's "All I need"

"I am a moth who just wants to share your light
I'm just an insect, trying to get out of the night
I only stick with you because there are no others

You are all I need
You are all I need

It's all wrong, it's all right
It's all wrong, it's all right"

Amy Plum is brilliant, and I'd like to applaud her on doing what I wish all published authors who have year-long waits between their books would do!! Die for Her was the perfect look back into Kate and Vincent's Parisian undead romance, giving fans of the series the ideal refresher course in what's happened so far and where we stand before the final book, If I Should Die, releases in May. Written from Jules' POV, we see some of the behind the scenes moments as Vincent falls for Kate, even though ...more

Amy Plum did an amazing job writing a male's POV and especially, Jules'. Not many

I know majority of the fans are team Vincent, but I liked Jules.

Through Jules' voice we see how Vincent fell in love with Kate and also how Jules fell in love with her too.

Kate is not Vincent's first love. Vincent was engaged to someone before he "died". I know Vincent loves Kate, but in back of my head, I always think Kate will be second best.

I have been on a major countdown for the release of Die for Her. I was so excited to wake up on Tuesday to find it already on my Kindle and I wasted no time in immediately starting it.

As with the other books in the Revenants series, Amy Plum thrusts us right back into the beauty and romance of Paris. I was in awe when I read Die for Me and Until I Die, and I experienced the same reaction when reading Die for Her. I felt as though I was there walking right along the Seine with the characters. I c

After reading Die For Her, I have a new appreciation for Jules. I already found him adorable in the previous books, but getting into his head in this novella, which also serves as a retelling of the events of the Revenants trilogy up to the end of the middle book through Jules’s point of view, just made me love him all the more.

Jules has got it really bad for his best friend’s girl. He loves Kate, too. And unlik

I really loved reading from Jules POV. While reading Die for Me and Until I Die, I had a feeling that he liked Kate, I just didn't know that it was to this extent.

What makes this book so heartbreaking is the fact that we're witnessing Jules fall in love with someone who will never reciprocate those feelings. All in all, I think it's shows how much of a loyal friend he is to Vincent by not acting upon his feelings. He's not trying to steal Kate away, and there have been plenty of times where he

Reading this novella was a perfect way to get back into the spirit of the series as well as refresh my memory before reading If I Should Die, the final book in the series.

Die For her is a novella written from Jules' perspective and it's basically a summary of everything essential that happens during the first two books in the series. In addition to that we get to see how Vincent slowly developed an obsession with Kate and how gradually Jules himself fell in love with her. I really liked Jules' v

“Jules?” she says, a question in her voice.

the line above is the one that caught my attention. The one that made me pause...and raise my eyebrows and wonder....What was Jules doing...and how long had he felt this way.

We'd always read everything from Kate's perspective so we were always seeing things through her scewed perceptions.

I always thougth Jules was a flirt, was just a silly beautiful boy who loved and enjoyed women but never settled down.

Until that moment up in the studio, I'd never ev

💬: First two books of the trilogy from the point of view of Jules, somewhat a recap of all the things that happened so far and a way to prepare ourselves for the last book. Which I was really worried seeing how the second book ended not that happy.
I liked Jules already, but seeing his insight about everything, specially about Kate and Vincent was a delight and somehow painful experience. We see the Jules that loves Vincent so much, like a brother, and that tries to
