Prince of Shadows by Rachel Caine

Brilliantly written, this "novel of Romeo and Juliet" is the story of Benvolio, Romeo's cousin, during the famous Romeo and Juliet tragedy. It starts with a thief in the night, and a chance meeting with the beautiful Rosaline, Romeo's original love. It darkens with the acknowledgement of Mercutio's forbidden love - a hangable offence to be gay in fair Verona. A witch, a curse, lots of blood is shed...

Beautifully written, a compelling read, and a different take on the traditional story.
