Publisher's Summary

The year is 1927, and Shanghai teeters on the edge of revolution. After sacrificing her relationship with Roma to protect him from the blood feud, Juliette has been a girl on the warpath. One wrong move, and her cousin will step in to usurp her place as the Scarlet Gang's heir. The only way to save the boy she loves from the wrath of the Scarlets is to have him want her dead for murdering his best friend in cold blood. If Juliette were actually guilty of the crime Roma believes she committed, his rejection might sting less.

Roma is still reeling from Marshall's death, and his cousin Benedikt will barely speak to him. Roma knows it's his fault for letting the ruthless Juliette back into his life, and he's determined to set things right - even if that means killing the girl he hates and loves with equal measure.

Then a new monstrous danger emerges in the city, and though secrets keep them apart, Juliette must secure Roma's cooperation if they are to end this threat once and for all. Shanghai is already at a boiling point: The Nationalists are marching in, whispers of civil war brew louder every day, and gangster rule faces complete annihilation. Roma and Juliette must put aside their differences to combat monsters and politics, but they aren't prepared for the biggest threat of all: protecting their hearts from each other.

The voices are horrendous

You can barely understand what most of the characters are saying when she all she does is mumble for Roma’s character

This Did Not Need To Be Two Books

And it certainly didn't need to be almost 1,000 pages combined. This book was beautifully written, but ran on the same juice as the first book. There was nothing fresh about it, no plot twist. The multiple POVs slowed the story and truthfully, I didn't feel invested in any character at the half way mark. They're all 19 and immature and it showed. There was no reason for this to be so long and feature the same 'virus' which was the entire plot of the first book, but character development drove this book. We didn't get a lot of answers which irked me. The narrator was just too slow and too quiet. I couldn't differentiate the character's voices. Good effort all around, but not my cup of tea.

second book syndrome

I wasnt as impressed with this book. I found it boring honestly. It was very political, and a lot more of a blatant Romeo and Juliet retelling. I was disappointed by the ending, of course they both "die". I was more invested in Marshall and Benedicts relationship than anything else, but then they just randomly moved to Moscow at the end? It was weird and felt incomplete. Also, the narrator couldn't seem to keep her Russian accent for the Montagovas. Half the time they had it and half the time they didn't. All around unimpressed.

hard to hear

great story! my only issue is that the reader sometimes whispers and talks so low that it is inaudible, for example in particular when she reads lines in French.

There is a fine line between love and hate

I loved this book duology because of the world building, setting, strong main characters, and inclusion of multiple cultures with many languages (Mandarin, French, Russian...) in the text that I'd never read before in any other book! This is such a gem to read as a trilingual multicultural individual! I disliked the constant tension, fighting, and sadness in the second book but then again, violence was preluded to from the titles. The ENDING 😭 I should've expected in retrospect but I'm still sad about and was not prepared!! Taking the next few hours to recover 🤧 That said, I'm excited for Chloe Gong's next book Foul Lady Fortune coming in Fall 2022!
