Waiting on Wednesday (103)

Waiting on Wednesday was created by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick this week is

Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay

"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.
Stacey Jay is one of my favorite YA authors of all time, no doubt it. Her Megan Barry, Zombie Settler series? Spectacular, funny, and romantic; I still get sad that there isn't more of them at times. Therefore, when I heard about Juliet Immortal I knew I had to read it! I love the story of Romeo and Juliet, and the fact that this is retelling of it (with an epic sounding premise to boot) makes me very excited! Now if only September 13 could just get here a bit faster everything would be perfect!
