Romeo and Juliet and.. Vampires?

The famous tragic star crossed lovers from William Shakespeare`s play have returned... in a book about Vampires!

Claudia Gabel re-wrote the tragedy and fit vampires into the mix, with the Capulets as the vampires and most famous rivals, the Montegues, as their hunters!

Now, I must ask this question... Did Claudia ruin the romantic tragedy by re-writing it? I quite enjoyed the story, but since I have not read the play as of yet, I think the story ruined it.

One thing that ruined it: a happy ending.

William Shakespeare wrote it as a tragedy, not a happily ever after. If Claudia just had to re-write Shakespeare`s play, and she actually did a good job, she could have left the one thing that made Romeo and Juliet famous. Their death.

Passion, the third book in the Fallen series

Anyone excited about Passion? I must say, the end of Torment made me want more. Only 61 more days until the release of Lauren Kate`s brand new book, and I know I`m not the only one who is excited.

Lauren Kate`s Fallen series quickly became a world wide hit, and from the very first chapter of the very first book, many people were hooked on the twisted love story of Luce and Daniel.

Now, in Passion, we see what happened in the mysterious past lives. What will we see? Oh, the anticipation for that book drives me insane.

My first blog

Welcome to the Underworld, where all immortals reside. This blog is about all our favorite vampires, werewolves, faeries, demons, fallen angels, and any other downworlder you can think of.

Reading is a passion of mine, and I have read an abundance of fantasy fiction books. Yes, that includes Twilight. I also read manga and watch anime, so my knowledge is quite vast.

I am also quite a fantasy writer myself. Currently I am writing a vampire`s story. So, stick with me and I will keep you updated on all things that happen in the Underworld.
