“I cast a spell to make me Juliet. It worked. But I forgot that Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy. I got what I asked for.”
Douglas Rees, The Juliet Spell

“Careful, Edmund,” I said. “She eats guys for breakfast.”

Douglas Rees, The Juliet Spell

“I'd heard of Vlad Dracul, but only the name. The kids at Cotton Maher never said much except things like "The football team's up against Vlad this Saturday. Pray for them."
