Wanted to like this but didn't Stopped at page 273 and skipped to the end I liked the non western take on the story colonialism and how this affected the blood fued and their livelihood The actionfast paced scenes were really good but these were few and far between While the descriptions of the settings are beautiful sometimes its OTT and reptitive The description of Juliette hating Roma every time they met was repetitive Similarly the character descriptions at times were lengthy eg half a page is dedicated to how two of the side characters typewrite Its not relevant to the story The book relies on our pre exisiting knowledge of R J I wasn't invested or cared about the romance mainly lack of or hate between them here because I wasn't a part of that journey A preuel telling us what happened between them would have been better than being told though snippets sometimes during dialogue which broke the flow All the characters were also uite bland so I didn't care about the ending unfortunately

TheseViolentDelightsEr are the White Flowers who have fought the Scarlets for generations And behind every move is their heir Roma Montagov Juliette's first loveand 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. Apparently I'm the girl that just doesn't get along with highly anticipated reads I originally picked this book up because it sounded like an awesome premiseA romeo & Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shangai I'm a massive fan of storytelling set in Asia but man alive there is just no world building whatsoever I didn't feel transported to another time I didn't really get a feel for the culture or the way of life I really needed in that regardThe characterisation was weak I didn't feel connected to any of the characters Juliet was written as a strong and independent woman but I just found her incredibly winey and childish As the heir to the Scarlet gang she seemed interested in maintaining her poker face with Romo Likewise he was the same but male Never felt any affection for either and for a romantic retelling it felt a bit soullessThe first couple of hundred pages was a complete info dump and to say I was exceedingly bored was an understatement The book didn't need to be as long as it did and a lot of the narrative was endless descriptions and no action
