PRINCE OF SHADOWS by Rachel Caine (WoW #168)

Posted by on October 2, 2013

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!


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.”

PRINCE OF SHADOWS releases on February 4th 2014 from NAL.

A story on one of the characters from Romeo and Juliet? YES PLEASE. What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Uha, where did that hide out? I love Romeo/Juliet takes, but pciking the story apart from a different pair does sound good, too. Thanks a lot for sharing! My WoW, and there’s also a giveaway running on my blog right now to check out. =)

  2. I haven’t heard of this one… but that sounds so good. I’ve enjoyed books like this in the past, so I’ll definitely have to pick this one up too.

    Great pick!
