Pretty much everyone knows that I absolutely hated Juliet Immortal. Absolutely hated it. I did not like it in any way, shape or form in any freaking way whatsoever. But becuse I liked Romeo, I decided to pick up this book anyway. While it wasn't stellar, I'm extremely glad that I did. I genuinely enjoyed this one and while I still didn't love it, it was entertaining and I actually found that I was able to like the characters. It was fun although at times f
“Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name.”

Epic loves story that points out flaws in one of the most star-crossed couples in history; Romeo Redeemed twisted the original one and filled it with love.

Romeo Redeemed picks up where Juliet Immortal left off. Setting in an alternative reality, this time Romeo takes the center stage, a lost lover who must save his soul from sins. We have already met Ariel in last book, whose body Juliet took over to accomplish her

What possessed me to read this book, I have no idea. Maybe I have high hopes for humanity. Or maybe I'm a masochist or just plain stupid. I can never tell.

Stacey Jay is one of my favorite authors, so don't go around yelling, "OMG! Hater in da hawz!" or else, I will punch you. Hard. Ok? So violence aside, I REALLY HATE this book. I felt betrayed and somehow tricked!

To give you a better understanding, this is what it felt like:

Romeo truly believed he was doing Juliet a kindness when he decided to trick her into killing herself. He chose to grant her death instead of letting her live in poverty, shame, and exile with him. His actions, though wrong and evil, were born out of desperation, and he believed the friar’s lies that when Juliet died she would live a happy life in heaven. Romeo never thought Juliet’s soul would be tainted by so much anger and rage that she would never be at peace. Juliet’s pain and hate were th ...more
I think Stacey Jay put an interesting spin on your Shakespearean classic, but I honestly think she should have stopped after book 1.

While this book gave us a little more insight on Romeo and redeems him from our hatred, as well as gives us an explanation of how he came to be with Rosaline at the end of book 1, I think this book was inconsistent with a lot of what happened in the first book.

In this wonderful sequel to Juliet Immortal, Romeo has a chance to redeem himself by making Ariel fall in love with him. We find Romeo trying to redeem himself for the things he has done. He works so hard to become the good person that Ariel wants him to be and I value that he tries and even succeeds. Whether or not, Romeo deserved it all in Juliet Immortal, I find him so vulnerable and broken that he understands that nothing will work out for him until he falls in love.

I loved how much Romeo ha

There's one good thing about my waiting to read Juliet Immortal, and that was being able to read both of these book back to back. Picking up immediately after Juliet Immortal ends, Romeo Redeemed lives up to it's seductive nature. I mean look at that cover.... Romeo is definitely not at all who I thought I had figured him out to be. He's much more complex, and intense. I loved the side of Romeo I got in this story.

Much like Ariel was, I found myself drawn to his vulnerability and that hidden re

Romeo Redeemed picks right after Juliet Immortal.

This is Romeo's story, and this is his chance to redeem himself, of all the wrongdoings he commited as a member of the mercenaries...for those of you, who haven't read the first book, i will try to keep the explanations to a minimum. Imagine, that love, just like power, and money, is one of the greatest forces of the great, that the loss of a single (but always important ) soul to the mercenaries,


I am not usually one for covers with people kissing on them, but the colors on this cover just draw you in. Just like Juliet Immortal (the first book of this series), I would have picked up the book based on cover alone. I know they say not to judge a book by its cover, but its the first impression, and I like the first impression Romeo had on me.

This book was terrible. Gouge out my eyes and throw them at the main characters horrible. The characters aren't well-written; I loathe them and I actually want the main female lead to drown in moldy cake and sour milk. The writing is atrocious, I don't care about the plot and I hate despise the characters.

Ariel is in the top three worst main characters I've ever read in my life. She's whiny, needy, bipolar, dense and has no self esteem. She thinks she's ugly all the

Something I love to do but don't get to all that often is read a series pretty much back to back. With a memory like mine, reading the series altogether is the only way that I can guarantee I don't miss key plot lines or internal references. Although Juliet Immortal has apparently not been especially popular with bloggers, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book. Romeo Redeemed struck me as one of the most consistent sequels I have ever encountere
What! It's over. NO!

Stacy Jay has written a series ( Juliet Immortal ) that takes a spin on what we all know about Romeo and Juliet and it was a wild ride in both books that included a lot of romance.

Romeo Redeemed picks up right where Juliet Immortal left off with a few parts being repeated like a recap for the readers. Than it follows Romeo trying to redeem himself for all the bad that he has done. And boy does he redeem himself.

I loved all the twists and turns (view spoiler)
mmmmm, I guess I'm pretty much into the Shakespeares version, so I was hoping that in some kind of way - I mean there's a lot of parallel dimensions in this story- Romeo and Juliet could actually stayed together!!
So it was well known-since book one- that Romeo would stay with Rosaline, so this book is definitely a crazy way to put Romeo together in the path which would lead him to her, So when we have Miss Little Mermaid in scene, is already Know that she would be in somehow of way , Rosaline. A

Romeo has made a lot of mistakes. But he’s finally trying to atone for them by joining the side of the Ambassadors of Light. His mission? He must inhabit Dylan Stroud’s body and make Ariel Dragland fall in love with him…in three days. To make matters worse, Ariel hates Dylan. He made a bet with his friends that he could convince the school “Freak” to sleep with him and she very nearly fell for it. Romeo finds himself transported to Dylan’s

WELL THEN. I was excited to read this after the set up it got in Juliet Immortal, but I guess I should've given more weight to my (not good) opinion of that book.

They fell in love in THREE DAYS. Despite his CENTURIES of doing bad things! But he's all good now! And then all these things happened that didn't really make sense! (Just because magic exists in your book doesn't mean you can do ANYTHING.)

Also, trigger warning for (view spoiler) which is something I try
Romeo Redeemed starts off where Juliet Immortal ended. Romeo has been banished to his former rotting body and given back his senses to feel again. Alone and broken with nothing but his pain, regret, hate and his love to further his present hell, Romeo finally understands the true meaning of suffer. But he's been given the choice of a second last chance.

I fell in love with Ms. Jay's writing after reading Juliet Immortal. It was just so poetic feeling and just breathtaking.

Needless to say I adored the story and was so excited to learn that we would get more Romeo, that we would get to hear more of his story and hopefully, get to see him be able to redeem himself.

I knew his story must be a good one.

I really wanted to get to know Ariel too, I knew there must be more to her story as well. We learned a lot about her through Juliet but still, I thou

Let me just say that the cover is fucking gorgeous. It's definitely on the best-covers-of-2012 list for me. I love it.

I think the romance was the highest point of this book. Romeo loved Ariel in a way he could never love Juliet, and to be honest - I liked Ariel a lot more then Juliet. We got a new point of view from both Romeo and Juliet, getting some insight into Romeo's... uh, past. There WAS in

This was an almost painful read for me. What if Romeo and Juliet had been tricked and were mere pawns in an immortal game of good and evil? What it their deaths had been planned so that their two exception souls could be used as foot soldiers on opposite sides of the war? And what if their true loves weren't each other but different people entirely?

Romeo Montague has traveled forward thousands of years in time to be with a young, troubled woman named Ariel. It is his mission to convince Ariel o

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Juliet Immortal, but I loved the idea behind it and I wanted to read Romeo’s side of the story more than I cared for Juliet’s. So I was happy to get a chance to read the sequel, and hoped that a lot of the confusing aspects in the first installment would be explained this time around.

They were not. I was lost most of the time when it came to the alternate universes and different time periods and how all of that works. It’s never fully explained. Maybe we’re just suppo

I really fell in love with Juliet Immortal when I picked it up a couple of months ago and honestly could not wait to get my hands on Romeo Redeemed. Truth be told the book did not let me down. Actually I think that in the end I enjoyed this book a little more than I did Juliet Immortal. When I started this book I did have a general idea of what to expect but I did find myself surprised a couple of times. The book basically starts off where Juliet Immortal ended. With Romeo being punished for hi

This is the sequel to Juliet Immortal, by Stacey Jay, and picks up the story right where we were left, just that now Romeo takes centre stage, and he does a better job telling his story than Juliet did telling hers.

All the book's events take time in three days, which seems like a short time (and it is) but the author does a good job squeezing said time, though the end still felt a little bit crowded.

As I mentioned before, this book follows Romeo, he's been condemned to spend the rest of his days

It is rare that I sit and read a book cover to cover in a day. It says something about the book if I do so. Meaning, nobody in the house better bother me, speak to me or ask me to cook dinner because MOMMY is busy! When I read Juliet Immortal, I was so pleasantly surprised because 1., I had discovered another fantastic author and 2., I have a new friend because of it (Stacey). When I got the ARC of Romeo Redeemed, I had to finish a few tasks before I could actually pick it up and engulf it! I wa ...more

This book was amazing! It did funny things to my heart. I really enjoyed Juliet Immortal, but one of my favourite things about it was Romeo, even though he was the villain in the first book. He was clearly a tortured soul, and they make the absolute best love interests! So I knew I would enjoy this one even more, and I did.

Romeo is cursed to spend eternity in his rotten, stinking corpse – his punishment for defying the Mercenaries. But he is offered a chance at redemption by an Ambassador. All he has to do is make Ariel Dragland fall in love with him.

As the world’s most famous lover, Romeo believes this will be his easiest assignment ever, and his reward is just around the corner. But Ariel herself has a dark side, and if Romeo cannot bring her into the light and make her love him, then the scales will be tipped
Debbie (at) I Heart YA Books
Romeo Redeemed is absolutely awesome. Stacey Jay took me on the most amazing and twisted rollercoaster ride in this conclusion to the Juliet Immortal series. All I could do was hold my breath and hang on. Jay has taken Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and turned it into a masterpiece for today’s readers. She’s also given Romeo a personality that I always imagined he'd have, and that I finally got to see in Jay's version of Romeo. I love that Jay wrote a novel that answered the questions I've alway ...more
I love the feeling you get after just finishing an exciting that book that ended on a high. That's why I thought I'd better review this a.s.a.p. before the buzz leaves me and I feel depressed because the series is over.

Romeo Redeemed was just as beautiful as Juliet Immortal, and filled with just as much - if not even more - drama, action, romance and twice as much adrenaline. It was beautiful, and I loved it - despite the fact that if you ask me in six months whether I loved a book based on Rome
Donna {Book Passion for Life}
Last year I fell in love with Juliet Immortal and so when I heard the author was releasing a sequel told from Romeo's point of view, I was extremely excited. I wanted to get into Romeo's head more and get his side of the story but while I enjoyed Romeo Redeemed, I didn't love it as much as the first book.

This time around we see Romeo living out his eternity alone and slowly rotting away. He killed the love of his life, Juliet and now he's paying for it. Well that is until he's given an opportuni
