I was so intrigued by the premise of this book that I couldn't wait to start it. I read the first 2 chapters, and almost didn't continue, but I pushed through a few more chapters, and I got a bit hooked.
There were things that I liked about this book: the idea of the true story of Romeo and Juliet being something other than the Shakespeare story, evil Romeo..etc.
But there were definite issues with the book as well: several of the characters were more irritating the sympathetic, and the ending was a bit unsatisfying. Still, I think I will be checking out the sequel, and possibly other books by this author.
