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 could smell the smells they did, see the same sights and feel the same cold winter air as it whipped them. Plum has an amazing way with words and you will feel completely immersed in their world.
This novella is a short retelling of the first two books in the series but told from Jules' point of view. Obviously with it only being sixty pages it is not a full retelling but it hits the major plot storylines that help us to understand how Jules has fallen for his best friends love.
What is not to love about Jules? He is a romantic, a tortured artist and has a wicked sense of humor. Yes, he is player but this is because in all the years he has lived he has never allowed himself to get close to anybody. He didn't want the burden of breaking somebody's heart down the road when it would have to inevitably end due to him being immortal. But then there is Kate.
But the more time he spends with Kate the more he allows himself to get closer and to care for her. He is disgusted at himself for the feelings he is having and swears to never make them known to Vincent or Kate.
Honestly, my heart breaks for Jules. I simply love him. I have no idea how his story is going to end happy. It is pretty clear that Vincent and Kate are destined to be together and I can only hope that somehow Jules is able to find his own happily ever after. Although, as much as I love Vincent... I am still secretly rooting for Jules. But even saying that seems wrong because Vincent is such a lovely character. If I am this torn I can only imagine how Kate will feel once she discovers that Jules is also in love with her.
Thankfully the wait for the final book in the series, If I Should Die, is not to terribly far away. The publication date is set for May 7 2013 so only a month away. To say I am excited for this story to continue is a drastic understatement...
