Waiting on Wednesday 10 - Juliet Immortal

 Waiting on Wednesday is  a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet.

Title: Juliet Immortal
Author: Stacey Jay
Release Date: September 13th 2011
Goodreads: 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 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


Why I want it: This looks like a really interesting take on Romeo and Juliet...add to the fact that I never particularly liked Romeo anyway, and I love classics redone, and there's nothing else like this out there, this looks like something I need to read.

What are other people waiting on this week?
