Cindy Kay narrates a violent retelling of ROMEO AND JULIET set in the underworld of 1926 Shanghai. Juliette Cai and Roma Montagov are members of opposing gangs who must work together to save their city from a horrifying new threat. Juliette is a fierce and angry young woman who must ceaselessly defend and justify her position in the Scarlet Gang. Kay effortlessly leans into the rage and bitterness that Juliette experiences. Roma also faces numerous difficulties in his position as heir apparent to the White Flower Gang. Kay fully embodies the weariness he feels. While Kay's portrayals of Juliette and Roma are spot-on, some of the secondary characters can occasionally be more difficult to distinguish. But, overall, Kay's narration is solid and captivating.
