Short Synopsis
A thrilling retelling of the star-crossed tale of Romeo and Juliet, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Morganville Vampires series.

Full Synopsis
In the Houses of Montague and Capulet, there is only one goal: power. The boys are born to fight and die for honor 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 in Verona . . . and will rewrite all their fates, forever.

"Narrator Kyle McCarley tackles this twist on the story of Romeo and Juliet with wry humor, convincing and imaginative voices and accents, and an enthusiasm that is entrancing. . . . This is a listen to be savored." ---AudioFile

"Smart and sexy and addictive. . . . The Prince of Shadows will steal your heart, then he'll break it. I'm giving this book to everyone I know." ---Kami Garcia, coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures series

"Re-visit a Shakespearean classic from a new angle. Romance and intrigue abound; I loved it!" ---Melissa Marr, author of the Wicked Lovely series

"Narrator Kyle McCarley does a great job with the Shakespeare-style language and distinguishing among the characters' voices. This is a great addition for schools that teach Romeo and Juliet." ---School Library Journal Audio Review
