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.
I enjoyed this book a lot, although it also irritated me quite a bit. I liked Jules a lot in the full series, but never really saw him with Kate, so it was hard reading this, as I truly believe it's Kate and Vincent, all the way. But it was nice to dive back into the world of the revenants for a little bit, before I read If I Should Die. I enjoyed the writing and the different perspective. Jules is really cool and complex and is an enjoyable character. It was nice to see who he truly is. All in all, this was a good one!
