Waiting on Wednesday- Prince of Shadows; A Novel of Romeo and Juliet

Waiting on Wednesday is a fun meme where we showcase a book we cannot WAIT to come out. It is hosted by http://breakingthespine.blogspot.in/

This week I am talking about the new Rachel Caine novel Prince of Shadows; A Novel of Romeo and Juliet I lovelovelove a Shakespeare retelling and I enjoy Rachel Caine as an author so this looks promising.

It comes out February 4 2014, which means I probably won’t read it till the end of the month since that is four day before my wedding eeeeeek. It is 368 pages long and is being published by NAL Hardcover

In the Houses of Montague and Capulet, there is only one goal: power. The boys are born to fight and die for honor and—if they survive—marry for influence and money, not love. The girls are assets, to be spent wisely. Their wishes are of no import. Their fates are written on the day they are born.

Benvolio Montague, cousin to Romeo, knows all this. He expects to die for his cousin, for his house, but a spark of rebellion still lives inside him. At night, he is the Prince of Shadows, the greatest thief in Verona—and he risks all as he steals from House Capulet. In doing so, he sets eyes on convent-bound Rosaline, and a terrible curse begins that will claim the lives of many in Verona…

…And will rewrite all their fates, forever


  1. This book sounds really good. I will keep my eye out for it. Thanks for stopping by my WoW

  2. I'm about to start one of Rachel Caine's older books this weekend, the first book in the Red Letter Days series (trying to clean out my Netgalley books). I didn't know she wrote for Mills & Boon / Harlequin. Prince of Shadows sounds fabulous. I love the story of Romeo and Juliet too, hopefully she does it justice, but with her own twist.

  3. This one sounds interesting. Nice pick! Thanks for checking out my wow.
