"You are deluded, Romeo. Vampires do not have the capability to love. They are heartless."
The Capulets and the Montagues have some deep and essential differences. Blood differences. Of course, the Capulets can escape their vampire fate, and the Montagues can try not to kill their undead enemies. But at the end of the day, their blood feud is unstoppable. So it's really quite a problem when Juliet, a vampire-to-be, and Romeo, the human who should be hunting her, fall desperately in love. What they don't realize is how deadly their love will turn out to be-or what it will mean for their afterlives. . . .
This riotous twist on the ultimate tale of forbidden romance is simply to die for.
William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, in 1564. He is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language. his body of work consists of 38 plays and more than 150 sonnests, as well as other poetry. His best-known comedies include A Midsummer Night's Dream and Much Ado About Nothing, and his notable tragedies include Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth.
Claudia Gabel grew up in Binghamton, New York, and dreamed of being a writer. Now she is the author of the In or Out series for teens, which means she has extensive knowledge on deadly drama, enemies, and feuding. Shakespeare would be proud.
