From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-In this sequel to Juliet Immortal (Delacorte, 2011), the evil Mercenaries have trapped Romeo in his rotting original body as punishment for attempting to save Juliet. When one of the Ambassadors offers him a chance at redemption, he enters an alternate reality in the body of handsome bad boy Dylan Stroud and has a chance to save Ariel Dragland, Juliet's former host, from a terrible future if he can make her fall in love with him. Romeo gradually wins over the wary Ariel, but, predictably, he finds himself also falling in love with her. He tries to protect her from the Ambassadors and the Mercenaries, but a Mercenary successfully manipulates her into distrusting him, endangering not only their future as a couple, but the future of the whole world as well. Told in alternating narration by Romeo and Ariel, this is an enjoyable reboot in which Romeo becomes a sympathetic hero rather than the contemptible villain of the first book. Readers definitely have to have read Juliet in order to understand what's going on, and it also helps to be familiar with Shakespeare's play. However, the Ambassadors/Mercenaries mythos is still as murky as in the previous book. Purchase where the first novel is popular.-Kathleen E.

Stacey Jay has been one of my favorite authors since I first read Juliet Immortal last year. I was thrilled to read and review Romeo Redeemed. Romeo has suffered for hundreds of years because of mistakes he made as a young man in a terrible situation. When given the chance to fight against the Mercenaries, Romeo eagerly accepts. Romeo's assignment is Ariel Dragland; he must make Ariel believe in love. Cocky and confident, Romeo believes Ariel will easily fall for him and he is right. The problem is that he is falling in love with her...and the Ambassador who offered him a chance to right some of the wrongs he committed may not be as good as she appears.
Romeo Redeemed is a book that is impossible to put down. I could not stop reading and then reread the book as soon as I finished. Stacey Jay's writing is poetic and her storyline is brilliant. Teen girls and young women will love Romeo Redeemed. I give this novel five out of five stars.

When Romeo was cursed and bound to his rotting corpse he knew he would do anything to escape that horrible fate. So when he is given a second chance at redemption, he leaps at the opportunity. His task is to convince Ariel Dragland to believe in love, and thus preventing a cascade of events that could destroy the world. Known for his seductive ways, Romeo believes this task will be a piece of cake, but he quickly realizes his mistake as he starts to fall for her instead. Now he's questioning his motives and his own horrible fate means nothing to him anymore as Ariel becomes the Mercenaries target. Can love truly conquer all or will darkness prevail?

I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Juliet Immortal. I just felt like it fixed everything I couldn't stand about the original story and made it so much better. I'm just not big on tragedy and heartache. That being said, when I saw that Romeo would be getting his own chance at happiness, I was more than excited to see how things played out. I was really hoping to be swept right off my feet like I was the first time around, but unfortunately that never happened. Even though I had seen a spark of goodness in Romeo from the first book, I had a hard time believing his insanely quick transition this time around. In fact, he seemed rather sappy all too quick as well as way too willing to sacrifice himself considering his history. They say love conquers all, but despite being a hopeless romantic, in this case I can't help but being a little skeptical.

Another thing that really frustrated me about this book was the lack of answers. In fact there were a lot of part that were quite confusing as they just weren't explained very well.

I really fell in love with Juliet Immortal when I picked it up a couple of months ago and honestly could not wait to get my hands on Romeo Redeemed. Truth be told the book did not let me down. Actually I think that in the end I enjoyed this book a little more than I did Juliet Immortal. When I started this book I did have a general idea of what to expect but I did find myself surprised a couple of times. The book basically starts off where Juliet Immortal ended. With Romeo being punished for his actions and his current circumstances may be a little sad but I had a hard time feeling any sympathy for him to start. Not to say I dislike him but I know what brought him to where he currently is. However this book is about redemption and getting another shot to do right. This comes in the form of an offer and a not so easy task. Romeo has to fight for love instead of against it and has to show a girl that love is worth it. Problem he only has a certain period of time to accomplish this and then he must become an Ambassador.

The book is told from both Romeo and Ariel's point of view. There is even a little Juliet thrown in throughout the book. This did confuse me to start and I was beyond thrown because of the glimpse we got at the end of Juliet Immortal. The switch from each POV is put at the start of each chapter but more than that you can just tell who you are reading. Their voices are very clear,easy to identify and made the book go much faster than I had anticipated. That being said I was happy with how the book was paced and the way things were placed throughout the book. This was more of a what's happening now than what happened before and really I think that may have given this book a bit of an edge from the first.

Romeo Redeemed was a pretty decent novel. Not as good as the first in my opinion, but it's still worth a good solid 2 thumbs up. I'm glad that Romeo got a second chance to redeem himself and the ending was much better then the first book with the closure that Romeo and Juliet deserved.

Ariel pretty much surprised me in this one though. Juliet made it seem that Ariel was a quiet girl that was just too shy and scared. However, Ariel shows her dark and wild side in the second novel. It was a pleasant change.

Romeo definitely had a softer side, the one we're used to in the Shakespeare novel. Although a few times his darker side would show through, you could still see him change.
