Prince of Shadows:A Novel of Romeo and Juliet

Rachel Caine

From Caine (Morganville Vampires series) comes a dramatic retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet written from the viewpoint of Romeo's cousin, Benvolio Montague. The rebellious Benvolio has a secret identity as a master thief and is known in Verona as the Prince of Shadows. He uses his skills to exact revenge on those who have wronged both him and his family, most importantly, the House of Capulet. When Benvolio sets eyes on convent-bound Rosaline, he unleashes a terrible curse that will claim the lives of many in Verona.
