Juliet Immortal is one of the most random premises that I have ever seen a book decide to run with. You see, Juliet was murdered on her wedding night by none other than Romeo. By murdering his true love, Romeo becomes immortal. But, the Nurse saved Juliet and recruits her into an army of light: The Ambassadors who’s goal is to protect true love. Romeo has joined the Mercenaries, an army of darkness set on destroying true love.
And the thing is, I didn’t hate it…. It took a ridiculous premise and just went with it. If the author really wanted to, she could have cut ties with the Romeo and Juliet story and used her own characters. Romeo and Juliet add nothing to this story other than a set of names that you recognize and calls another complete narrative to the back of your mind.
Would I read it again? Probably not. This novel serves as a great beach read. It’s light, there’s nothing really to it and true love will always conquer all.
The ending of this novel is a little bit confusing, and I had to go back and reread it a few times before I knew exactly what was going on. Jay needed to set the stage for a sequel: Romeo Redeemed.
So look forward to my review on that!
