Giveaway: Rachel Caine’s Prince of ShadowsPrince of Shadows by Rachel Caine
Published by Penguin Books on February 3rd 2015
ISBN: 9780451414427
Genres: Young Adult
Format: Paperback

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. I haven’t read/watched Romeo and Juliet in decades. It was not my favorite story at the time. I really like the fact that Rachel is coming at it from a whole new angel. I enjoy her writing and am looking forward to reading this.

  2. I am actually not a big fan of Romeo and Juliet, but I’m really interested to see what Miss Caine will do with the story! 🙂

  3. I’m always interested in a new Shakespeare spin-off; even if it’s really flawed, I expect it will be interesting and make me think in a new way about the original play! Thanks for featuring this one and for this contest opportunity! — Kara S

    1. Favorite part: Juliet’s scene working out the transition from daughter Capulet to wife Montague in conversation with that comic nurse character!

  4. My favorite part is the balcony scene. This book sounds really good. Thanks for the chance to win it.
