The brilliantly imaginative New York Times bestselling fantasy retelling of Romeo and
Juliet set against the immersive backdrop of 1920s Shanghai.
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 eighteen-year-old Juliette C ai, 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.
Filled with romance, intrigue and betrayal, this heart-stopping debut is perfect for fans of
The Last Magician and Descendant of the Crane.
