"A plague on both your houses!" These words carry more weight than anyone could have ever imagined.
“A plague on both your houses…”
The dying words of Mercutio, best friend of Romeo Montague and cousin to the prince, set the stage for a horror the likes of which the world has never seen.
Now it’s up to Benvolio, the only Montague not caught up in the infamous feud between the Montagues and Capulets, to investigate why the dead are rising up and feeding on the humans. When it is discovered that his family and that of his enemies are being targeted by these monsters, a small group of Verona’s citizens must band together against the onslaught of the un-dead.
Set in Verona, Italy during the events of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, this novella utilizes both the original text of Shakespeare's masterpiece as well as the author's own unique view of what was taking place just out of view.
A witty combination of humor and action in the vein of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and Shawn of the Dead.
