Set after the events of Vengeance Road, this novella was originally available exclusively through the Retribution Rails preorder campaign. It is now available for purchase for the first time.

Vengeance Road is one of my favorite novels so it was nice to return to this world and these characters, even if only for a little while.

Kate’s voice is still one of my favorite voices I’ve ever read in a book. It’s so unique and really immerses you in the story from the start.

I loved getting to see more of Kate and Jesse and to see how they got from the end of Vengeance Road to where they ended up in Retribution Rails. It was nice to see how their story unfolded further and to just spend a li

Sweet little novella which fills in some of the gaps between Vengeance Road and Retribution Rails. How's Kate and Jesse's relationship continues. It's a nice little story worth reading if you're already read the others.

I loved Vengeance Road and this is the perfect novella that connects it to Retribution Rails.
It answers the question of what happened to Kate & Jesse!
I admire Kate so much for her strength and resilience. Not to mention how smart she is. Living in constant fear that the Rose Riders or someone else will show looking for her gold has made Kate come up with a plan should they have to leave her house.
Jesse is perfect for Kate, even though her may not always agree with her choices, he does res

I love Kate so damn much! 💖 This story sees Kate and Jesse in the time between book 1 and 2 as they navigate their budding relationship, town gossip, Rose Rider aftereffects, and eventually building their house in the clearing. It was such a joy to return to this world and Erin Bowman has creates such a distinctive voice for these characters.

I love these characters.
Reread: I love this little novella about Kate and Jesse! I definitely want to reread Vengeance Road and Retribution Rails sometime.

If you loved Vengeance Road, Kate & Jesse is a must read novella! Kate and Jesse are one of my favorite YA couples and I absolutely loved seeing this little glimpse into their life after the events of Vengeance Road. It's such a great snapshot of what they're up to and perfectly captures each of their magnetizing personalities. It's also a great littl

Kate & Jesse is nothing ground-breaking, but certainly a nice lil dose of these characters post-Vengeance Road. I appreciate that it's not absolutely necessary to read this novella before reading Retribution Rails but it does provide a nice extra bit of context.
