julieclair @TheBookHippie What an interesting article! I remember what a big deal that nude scene was at the time. And… I was not allowed to see the movie. 😂 I also didn‘t know she had written a book. Thanks for sharing. 1w

This is my first attempt of reading a Romeo & Juliette retell. It is quite dark, twisted and does not follow the typical tragic, romantic theme of the Shakespeare's drama.
The romance wasn't dominant in the story but rather the mystery around the monster, the violence on the streets and between the gangs, and Rome's and Juliette's investigation.

In glittering Shanghai, a monster awakens.
It eyes snap open in the belly of the Huangpu River, jaws unhinging at once to taste the foul blood seeping into the waters.

1st book of 2023!
I loved the first book, but this one didn't seem to live up to what I expected. Maybe because I listened instead of "reading" it like the first.

This was an exceptional ending to this series. It was so full of suspense and emotion. The ending took me completely by surprise. I definitely prefer this book to the first one. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The water thundered into her ears, forced itself down her throat, and burned its way into her nose, her lungs, her brain. This water was fierce and deadly—no cool, gentle waves, but hot, choking liquid flames, sucking the breath of life from her.

Great sequel. It followed that fast pace, with action and interesting twists. But ending suggests that maybe this is not the end of that story. I don‘t how related is the companion book with this story. Let‘s see. 4⭐️

⭐3.6
an interesting retelling of juliet and romeo, with intrigue and moster lurking around the cirty and causing havick and death upon it's wake set in 1920s Shangai. This book felt slow at the beginning but picked up the pase quickly, which was enjoyble for me personally.
