Such Sweet Sorrow (Entangled Teen)
Who would have thought that merging two of Shakespeare’s plays, Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, with mythology would make such an enticing read? Author Jenny Trout does a flawless job creating characters with so much personality, you feel as if you know them, as well as a world that wraps around you and sucks you in. I couldn’t put it down once I had picked it up.
With Romeo surviving his attempted suicide, his heart aches madly to have his Juliet back. Desperate, he seeks out a witch, who leads him to none other than Hamlet, the keeper of the corpseway, a portal between the living and dead. Together, they search the various Underworlds in search of Juliet, but one question looms in Romeo’s mind: how will he bring Juliet back to life when he finds her?
If you are looking for a romance, you won’t find it here. Instead, you will find dark humor, a bonding of friendship, epic adventures, and the start to what I hope will be a long-standing series. I highly recommend picking this book up!
