Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Release Date: August 9, 2011
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
The most tragic love story in history . . .
Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.
My Reveries and Ramblings: Did you hear that? I think I just heard something. *hears a faint "Buy Me!"* Yep. Definitely heard it. This book is just begging to be bought. I mean, just look at it. The cover alone is amazing. But when you add the story....Oh My Gosh! I devour anything that has a Romeo & Juliet theme to it. And this was definitely inspired by Shakespeare's tragic love story. Hence the "Buy Me!" you hear (and I hear) coming from the screen.
