Book Review: Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay

Goodreads synopsis: 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.

"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The thing that I loved most about reading this book was that it took one of the greatest love stories from Shakespeare and put a twist on the love and the relationship that Juliet and Romeo have against each other. Now I do understand that not a lot of people will like this book because it main story is a classic. However, I liked that the idea was taken from the original story and a personal twist was added onto it. 

Juliet is murdered by her true love Romeo and at the last minute she is saved by the forces of good known as the Ambassadors. She becomes immortal and they recruit her to fight against the Mercenaries which are evil. Romeo is apart of the Mercenaries having murdered Juliet for an immortal life. Over the years Juliet works to save relationships helping people find their soul mate and Romeo fights to keep soul mates from ever being together. Juliet is filled with hate and disgust for Romeo because of what he did to her. Whenever they cross paths Romeo tries to kill her but Juliet escapes because she is forbidden to kill him. This time when they inhabit new body things are different. 

I enjoyed reading Juliet Immortal and as I said, it is very different which is good. I loved Juliet's character because even through the innocence she is brave and still faces whatever she has to face to protect her mission. Even though she harbors hate she puts it aside to fight for what she believes. Romeo has his own demons that he is fighting but can't help himself for how he feels whenever he kills. Apart of him still loves Juliet but because of his part with the Mercenaries, he has loyalty to them.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…
