"You are deluded, Romeo. Vampires do not have the capability to love. They are heartless."

The Capulets and the Montagues have some deep and essential differences. Blood differences. Of course, the Capulets can escape their vampire fate, and the Montagues can try not to kill their undead enemies. But at the end of the day, their blood feud is unstoppable. So it's really quite a problem when Juliet, a vampire-to-be, and Romeo, the human who should be hunting her, fall desperately in love. What they don't realize is how deadly their love will turn out to be—or what it will mean for their afterlives. . . .

This riotous twist on the ultimate tale of forbidden romance is simply to die for.

    " Ugh, got as far as the balcony scene and it was just awful. Pedestrian writing at best and not nearly as charming as P&P& Zombies. Hello abandoned shelf. "

    " This book was good, I have to say, but it wasn't great. The sotry was kinda boring and overly dramic (like Romeo and juliet is but still) I was glad the author changed the ending so that they over because having them both die would just be depressing. Huummpppphhhh....... "

    " Finally, a Romeo & Juliet story with a happy end. I really loved it, although the floating vampires with long fingernails and stuff, really screws op my image of the beauty vampires are supposed to poses. :p "

    " I really didn't like the way this was written. The beauty of Shakespeare is the language, and this was too contemporary. It was targeted to teenagers, so the writing was simple and uncomplicated. The only thing the book really shares is the plot and the characters. They even took liberty with the plot, ending it the exact opposite of how it is supposed to be: neither Romeo nor Juliet dies. They become vampires and live eternally. I think it could have been better if it was written more like the original play it was adapted from. "
