Waiting on Wednesday -- Prince of Shadows


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. This week's can't-wait-to-read pre-publication book is Prince of Shadows. (I first learned about this on IceyBooks' WoW a couple of weeks ago, and since then, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it!)

Prince of Shadows


Prince of Shadows

by Rachel Caine
Publication date: February 4th, 2014

From Goodreads:

A standalone built around the character of Benvolio, from Romeo and Juliet. The novel will be told from the point of view of Benvolio, who is Romeo’s cousin and, in Shakespeare’s play, attempts to get the lovelorn Montague interested in other girls after it’s discovered that Juliet is a member of the clan his family despises: the Capulets. Caine’s novel, her agent said, explores a scenario in which Romeo and Juliet are not the only couple to fall into dire romantic straits and is “a tale of intrigue, betrayal, hatred, and tragedy,” about “lovers lost, and lovers found.” (From Publisher's Weekly)
