This book people is EVERYTHING. THE STORY, THE CHARACTERS, THE MYSTERY, THE ROMANCE, EVERYTHING IS SOOO GOOD.I cannot believe how good this book is . Chloe gong is such a good writer , I am going to buy anything she writes from now on.
These violent delights is set in 1920's Shangai, with two rival gangs in the center of madness , that is out of their reach.This book deals with some real-life events that occurred in shangai at the time with colonialism and capitalism blooming in china at the time.
Roma and Juliette are such engaging and strong protagonists, both of their characters are soo complex ,and interesting . I really loved how chloe gong built roma and Juliette as characters and their romance is to DIE FOR.(no pun intended).They have a lot of conflicting feeling for each other due to their gangs rivalry and them being the heirs doesn't make the matters easier.
RECOMMEND THIS BOOK 100000% . CANNOT WAIT FOR OUR VIOLENT ENDS (That cliffhanger and the twist at the end though)
