Juliet Immortal.

Juliet ImmortalJuliet Immortal by Stacey Jay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


*More like 3.7 stars*

I really really really really liked 'Juliet Immortal'! I would've loved it too, if not for the fact that Romeo and Juliet don't end up together. Call me old fashioned or narrow minded but come on! It's Romeo and Juliet!! If thats not true love, I'm not sure it exists!
I know Romeo/Dylan is supposed to be the bad guy in this novel but I really liked him, from the start.. I wanted Juliet and him to end up together, work out their differences.

'Juliet Immortal' had a brilliant start - completely based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. However, halfway through the book it turned out only to be another paranormal romance novel (although a really good one!). With the exception of my one problem with this story, I truly did like the rest of it. Stacey Jay has retold her version of Romeo and Juliet beautifully and I could not put this book down.

I liked the end too - what happened with Romeo. Although by then I really didn't feel like I was reading about Romeo and Juliet. Still, this book is wonderfully written and I found it beautiful. I will definitely be picking
up the next book (I really hope there is a next book!) just to know that Romeo reaches a happy place too. I don't believe he deserved I be portrayed the way he was.. Or to be hated. Whatever he did, it came from a good place.

Oh and Ben? Sure, I liked him,quite a bit. But he wasn't Romeo. If this were just another paranormal romance novel, then Ben is a really good male lead.. But then,there's Romeo - so, my expectations were really high!
