This is the second book in the Shakespeare's Moon series and I loved it even more than the first! It was well written and the shift between past and present is done amazingly. I also love how likable the characters were and how you can read either book first without getting spoiled. All in all, a wonderful read! ~ Cody Levi, NetGalley
We are given a retelling of Romeo and Juliet as you have never seen before. This is a great story and the shift between the past and the present is done really well, its also good to have the different points of view on this classic tale. If you like Shakespeare you will like this retelling. ~ Samantha Redworth, NetGalley
I didn't think that you could take a Shakespeare story and add more supernatural elements to it and still be good. I know that Shakespeare already had those elements but they were subtle, this book was really well done and I enjoyed reading it. ~ Kathryn McLeer, NetGalley
This was an enjoyable novel that any one who has read or studied Romeo and Juliet will be able to appreciate as well. It is so well written and weaved seamlessly the aspect of young, forbidden love that even those who have never read Romeo and Juliet will be able to understand and learn to love these characters. It's storyline design of using time travel makes history fun for those of a younger age to learn and read about. ~ Keshia Mahi-Leopoldino , NetGalley
After reading the first installment of this series, The Invisible Hand, I jumped at the chance to be able to read and review this installment. I was expecting a lot from this novel, since I enjoyed the first so much, and I was not disappointed! I love that it centers around another of Shakespeare’s play, but with it’s own twists and turns. I read this one in one sitting, because I just could not put it down, I was enamored! I loved the character development, and how easily I began to love each one. I’m a big fan of the whole boarding school aspect of the series, it brings something unique to the story. Since Romeo and Juliet is one of the most famous plays (that I know of at least) it made it much more fun to read since I knew some wort of back story. I feel as though lover’s of Shakespeare and even people who have yet to read any would still love this series! It is told in such a way that makes you fall in love with the character’s and the story. I really feel like the younger generations would appreciate this take on the plays. I can’t wait to continue on with this series!! ~ Kris, Boston Book Reader
A great way to get younger teens enthralled by Shakespeare as they’ve never been before. ~ Lucy Russell
...atmospheric, very readable, and in the best sense very educational. ~ Charles Nicholl
Intertwines modern day mystery and introducing the writings of Shakespeare in a new and refreshing way. ~ Jennifer Henderson
