“The magical Romeo and Juliet reimagining you didn’t know you needed” – Melanie (Melanie’s Muses)

When teenagers talk about waging war against their parents—they usually don’t mean it literally!

Rowan might not remember the last few weeks of her life, but even she knows that something isn’t right. This battle needs to be fought from the inside, and Rowan is determined to find out exactly how she knows the blue-eyed boy from her dreams—even if it means befriending a Montgomery prisoner and finding a strength she never thought possible.

Battling his own demons, Julian will stop at nothing to get his wife back, even if it means losing himself and all he holds dear in the process. With enemies surrounding him and the power within threatening to overwhelm him, will Julian be able to withstand his own trials and be reunited with the love of his life?

In the thrilling conclusion to this Romeo and Juliet reimagining, discover if Rowan and Julian really can fight fate and defy the stars.

Violence
5
There is a fair amount of violence and killing in this book - but most notably - there is sexual abuse (on a male character) and the trauma fall out regarding this. Although the actual event is not graphically depicted - it may be a trigger for some readers.
Language
5
There is not that much with regard to cursing and what there is only rates a 3 but there are 2 uses of the word b**** which meant an automatic 5 rating.
Romance/Sensuality
5
There is sex, but it is totally off page and no description at all. The most described is some intense romance and intimate kissing.
Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking

There is underage drinking but it is a period fantasy piece and this would have been acceptable and expected in that time period.
Supernatural Characters: Witches (That have power over various elements), Sirens, Shadow Assassins, Crones, Shapeshifters
