In an alternate world, Romeo and Juliet are gunslingers. Verona gives
way to a steampunk Victorian London. The victims of turf wars are
dumped in an alley they call Lovers’ Lane, and the moment the son of his
family’s enemy touches his face, Cain’s revenge is poisoned by love.
Fate would have it no other way.
Levi Ruslaniv is the heir to the Ruslaniv family gang, but ridiculous
ancient feuds do not interest him. Cain Dietrich’s vengeful hatred for
the Ruslaniv family is rooted deep, since he believes the Ruslanivs
arranged for the murder of his parents. But his encounter with Levi
pierces him deeper than hatred ever could.
With bullets and blazes of glory, schemes, spies, and pack
mentalities, loyalty runs as deep in the veins as passion or revenge,
and there is only one way to end the fighting. From the start it was
inevitable—a bloodstained fate for children with bloodstained hands, and
the streets of New London will never be the same.
