Description

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...?nd will rewrite all their fates, forever.

Professional reviews

"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. Benvolio Montague, cousin to fair Romeo, is the "Prince of Shadows" who is cat burgling his way through Verona as the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets comes to its tragic end. Similar to Wicked, this twist on a classic story is told from a different point of viewÑin this case, BenvolioÕsÑ giving a very different version and added detail to the story made so famous by Shakespeare. McCarley's voice for Romeo, sounding young and foolish rather than romantic, is a stroke of genius. This is a listen to be savored. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
