Prince of Shadows (Review #18)

IMG_4438Today’s review is of Prince of Shadows:

Author: Rachel Caine

Publisher: Allison & Busby

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Summary: In the houses of Montague and Capulet, there is only one goal: power. The boys are born to fight and die for honour 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.

I kinda liked this book. The idea and everything was great but it definitely doesn’t compare to other Rachel Caine books. I enjoyed the fact that it had real links to Romeo and Juliet but made it her own as well! Overall, a good book with a great idea.
