Summary (from Goodreads):
"These violent delights have violent endsI'm really excited for Juliet Immortal, the first in a new two-part series by Stacey Jay! I loved her Megan Berry novels and her more recent release, The Locket, so I'm definitely eager to see how Stacey will put her own spin on Romeo and Juliet! It really looks like we're in for a special treat, right? And isn't that cover just gorgeous with Juliet's red dress and the waves crashing around her?
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.
