        I loved this story and the ending was superb. Juliet is an amazing character and I think it is very interesting to see how willing she is to sacrifice her happiness at first. Romeo is such a dark character though. It was really surprising and interesting to see the new twist on Shakespeare's well known story.       

Rating: 5 Hard to imagine a better book

        In the book Juliet Immortal,  Juliet Capulet did not take her life she was murdered by the only person she tursted with her life, it was her new husband.......... Romeo Montague, who made a sacrifice of his love to have immortality..... but Romeo did not intend that Juliet have immortality as well. Now Juliet works with the Ambassadors of light, who help others to find love, and  find their sole mate. But the Mercenaries of darkess are the opposite of them, and will do anything to keep the lovers apart from each. Now Juliet sees Romeo, she hates him for what he had done to her. But Juliet is helping some who needs help, but starts having feelings for an other, but will she follow her heart, and finally find what she has been waiting for, for her true love? This book is a  twist on the book Romeo and Juliet.

            Juliet Immortal was a hard book to read do to the fact the book did not draw me in. I read the whole book but there were so many parts that turned me off I could not get into the book. Out of 306 pages I only liked 18 pages that are at the end. The book hit a turning point for Juliet then it was ruined by the actions that happened next. While the 24 chapter is my favorite I could only relate to it and page 267. This was a hard book to read do to that fact. I could not wait to get through the book it did not pull me in. It was not be any means one of the books  I have read. It was a great idea that needs more help to be better.

Rating: 2 Needs work
