Review: Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay

The story of Romeo and Juliet with a little twist? I think yes!

Juliet Immortal (Juliet Immortal, #1)The most tragic love story in history . . .
Juliet Capulet didn’t take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn’t anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she’s fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she’s forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

I really enjoyed this new take on the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet. This is unlike any retelling of the story. Instead of retelling the story in modern times it actually retells the story a whole different way in general by changing the whole plot and everything. That why I like this book. It is very unique when it comes to modern retellings.  This book had alot of mystery and action making every word make you want to read more.  I also love the sort of skewed love triangle, it really makes the story just that much interesting.  Stacey Jay really gave this story a face-lift and it should definitely be your next read!! Go pick it up from BN or Amazon. You can visit Stacy Jay at her website here. Be on the look out for the sequel Romeo Redeemed!!!  I have no doubt it'll be as great as the first :)

Stacey Jay's book cover pulls you in and this happens to be one of the major things I look for when purchasing a new book.

This book is on my shelves since a long time and I've read others and others... After reading your review, I guess than it will be a great idea to sweep away the dust on the cover and start turning pages...
Thanks for your review,
