{Novella Review} Die for Her - Amy Plum


Die for Her by Amy Plum
Series: Die for Me #2.5
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Release Date: Apr 2 / 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
Set in the romantic and death-defying world of the international bestselling Die for Me trilogy, this digital original novella follows Jules, a brooding, immortal French artist who has fallen in love with his best friend’s girlfriend.
Jules Marchenoir is a revenant-an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save human lives. He’s spent the better part of the last century flirting his way through Paris, but when he met Kate Mercier, the heroine from Amy Plum’s Die for Me trilogy, he knew his afterlife had changed forever and he had found the love of his life. Until Kate fell for his best friend, Vincent. Now Jules is faced with an impossible decision: choosing between his loyal friend and a love truly worth dying for.

Die for Her is a short novella I read. I wanted to read this before reading the last one but now I'm not so sure how long it'll be before I get on reading the last book. In this novella, I really enjoyed reading about my favorite character in the whole book, Jules. I saw his personal turmoils and I wished the author could've showed more of his funny side. Now I see that his humour is just his shield and I feel so sorry for poor Jules :( But I don't think he'd want my pity. Kate was really annoying through the whole novella. I was okay with her before but now we don't really see eye to eye. I don't like how she irrationally rushes into things. This novella gives a good perspective on Jules's POV and I would suggest you read this if you really like him.

  1. I'm sorry you didn't like this one :( I actually really like this series. I haven't read Die For Her yet because i'm not really a novella person, but I was intrigued because I love Jules. When I started to see review about how sad it was, I wasn't sure I would read it. I do see what you mean by Kate making irrational decisions, and that comes up in the last book to hurt Jules too. I still think you should read the last book, just brace yourself for that.

    1. Hmm.. I never liked novellas that much.. Hopefully the last book, If I Should Die, will be a good ending for this series!
