Waiting on Wedensday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is our chance to post those books that we are dying to get our hands on.

This week I am posting about Prince of Shadows by Rachel Caine.

I loved her Morganville Vampire series and I am so excited that she is writing something totally new and different for her, plus, it just sounds amazing. I love retellings.



Book Description:
A thrilling retelling of the star-crossed tale of Romeo and Juliet, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Morganville Vampires series.

In the Houses of Montague and Capulet, there is only one goal: power. The boys are born to fight and die for honor and—if they survive—marry for influence and money, not love. The girls are assets, to be spent wisely. Their wishes are of no import. Their fates are written on the day they are born.

Benvolio Montague, cousin to Romeo, knows all this. He expects to die for his cousin, for his house, but a spark of rebellion still lives inside him. At night, he is the Prince of Shadows, the greatest thief in Verona—and he risks all as he steals from House Capulet. In doing so, he sets eyes on convent-bound Rosaline, and a terrible curse begins that will claim the lives of many in Verona…

…And will rewrite all their fates, forever.




So what do you think, sound good to you?

    1. If you like vamps you will like the series Becca! It is different, the vamps are both good and bad (mostly bad) and there are other paranormal things as well, plus the protagonist is awesome!
