Novella Review - Die for Her (Revenants, Book 2.5) by Amy Plum (4/5 stars)

Reading Level: Young Adult
Genre: Paranormal
Size: 60 pages
Publisher: HarperTeen
Date: April 2, 2013
Stand Alone or Series: 2.5th book in the Revenants series
Source: Bought
Rating: 4/5 stars

This is novella that takes place after the 2nd Revenants book. I recommend reading this after you are read those two books, primarily because it summarizes the whole story up to that point from a different character’s perspective. The third and final book in this series, If I Should Die, releases in May 2013.

This whole novella is from Jules’ point of view. It covers the whole series to this point; from when Vincent and Jules first meet Kate to the end of the second book.

This was a decent read and I enjoyed it. It was interesting to see things from Jules perspective. Finally we get to see into his head, and he’s not the light-hearted flirt we always thought he was. It was wonderful to get to know Jules better and see how he really feels about Kate. My heart went out to him and reading this definitely affected how I will see him in the final book.

It was also nice to get a quick synopsis of the whole series before the next book in the Revenants series is released later this month. This book gives a nice overview of all of the events that have happened in the series up to this point. It was an excellent overview and just makes me want to read the 3rd book even more.

Overall definitely a good read if you are a fan of this series. It gives great insight into Jules’ character and why he acts how he does throughout the series. It was also a very nice recap of what’s happened so far in this series. I would recommend reading the first two books in the series before reading this novella, there are spoilers for the first two books in this novella. I can’t wait to read If I Should Die!
