The year is 1927 and Shanghai is on the brink of revolution.
After sacrificing her relationship with Rome to protect him from the blood feud, Juliette was a girl on a mission. One wrong move and her cousin will step in to usurp her place as heir to the Scarlet Gang. The only way to save the boy she loves from Scarlet’s wrath is to make him want her dead for murdering his best friend in cold blood. If Juliette was truly guilty of the crime Roma believes she committed, perhaps her rejection would hurt less.
Roma is still suffering from Marshall’s death and her cousin Benedikt hardly speaks to her. Roma knows it’s his fault for letting the ruthless Juliette back into his life, and he’s determined to make things right, even if it means killing the girl he hates and loves in equal measure.
Then a monstrous new threat arises in the city, and though secrets separate them, Juliette must ensure Rom’s cooperation if they are to end this menace once and for all. Shanghai is already at boiling point: nationalists are marching, whispers of civil war are growing louder by the day, and the gangster government is threatened with total annihilation. Roma and Juliette must put their differences aside to battle monsters and politics, but they are unprepared for the greatest threat of all: protecting their hearts from one another.

This was the story I expected from a Romeo and Juliet inspired novel! However, you must read it because it is not what you may believe. You will not be disappointed!
I found the bringing back of the monsters and all of that a bit repetitive, albeit done differently. The intrigues between all the factions got a bit boring and a bit hard to follow with all the hyphens and twists. At one point he almost supported the revolution just to end it all (not really, but kind of).
I felt that the epilogue left a few things to be desired when it came to the endings of some of the supporting characters. Basically everything is nicely connected, but I would have liked more details, especially about Benedikt and Marshall.
But what interested me the most and what Our Violent Ends de Gong really offers is this unfortunate love story. The story that breaks your heart and makes you cry along with the characters. This one is definitely better than the original! I still spent most of the story yelling at them both, like I did when I read the original Romeo and Juliet, and telling them that if they thought about it a little longer, they would realize what was going on would go on from the other’s point of view.
Really go ahead and see the truth of the matter, which is that their love for one another was genuine and stronger than anything around them, not their gang loyalty, their parental loyalty, their responsibility, not even death. Because there has never been a love story better guarded than that of Roma and her Juliette…
To say that this duology is a recreation of Romeo and Juliet does this book a disservice. The links are very loose, the only ones being some similarities in the names and the use of a similar plot device (unnamed to avoid spoilers). A much more accurate description of these novels would be historical fiction set in late 1920s Shanghai, in which the main characters are morally gray villains-turned-heroes. This is not your typical gangster novel.
This may be a typical romance novel with great main characters, but it’s set in a beautiful mansion. I’m so glad I read this series, I hope anyone who’s unsure about reading this will realize because despite the author’s obvious admiration for the work it’s loosely based on, these characters are partial much better developed because they are older but also because they are less selfish.
