    Inhaltsangabe

    Perfect for fans of The Last Magician and Descendant of the Crane, this heart-stopping New York Times best-selling debut is an imaginative Romeo and Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai, with rival gangs and a monster in the depths of the Huangpu River.

    In glittering Shanghai, a monster awakens....

    A blood feud between two gangs runs the streets red, leaving the city in the grip of chaos. At its heart is 18-year-old Juliette Cai, a former flapper who has returned to assume her role as the proud heir of the Scarlet Gang - a network of criminals far above the law. Their only rivals in power are the White Flowers, who have fought the Scarlets for generations. And behind every move is their heir, Roma Montagov, Juliette's first love...and first betrayal.

    But when gangsters on both sides show signs of instability culminating in clawing their own throats out, the people start to whisper. Of a contagion, a madness. Of a monster in the shadows. As the deaths stack up, Juliette and Roma must set their guns - and grudges - aside and work together, for if they can't stop this mayhem, then there will be no city left for either to rule.

    Riveting

    Wowwww!
    I loved this book. It was fast paced, intricate and brilliant. The plot twists and slithers like the monster haunting Shanghai, there are definitely some surprises. The narrator reads the story very well, she has a cool, not too dramatic voice, perfectly suited to the story. As for the love story: it is bittersweet and also a little typical, whilst being different entirely. In any way i’d say it makes up about 40% of the plot which is the perfect amount if you ask me. In any way I loved it and highly recommend this series.
    Enjoy 🤗
