These Violent Delights (These Violent Delights #1) by Chloe Gong - A Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are reviewing These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong which is the first book in a YA fantasy  series and was published in November 2020 by Hodder & Stoughton.

The second book Our Violent Ends comes out  in November 2021 and the cover is stunning.

These Violent Delights is a heart-stopping imaginative Romeo and Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai with rival gangs and a monster in the depths of the Huangpu River. 
First of all my favourite trope is in the book: Enemies to Lovers. Despite that I also liked the plot and the writing of the author. She had done a very good research and it felt as if you were in the 1920s Shanghai yourself. 
I enjoyed the main characters as well as the side characters. Roma is my favourite and I want to see him in the sequel to be more badass. 

I need the sequel asap because that ending killed me...

Rating: 4 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:
A monster has awakened in 1920s Shanghai, killing off citizens and stirring trouble between two feuding gangs. The rival heirs, Roma Montagov and Juliette Cai, must work together before the monster destroys all they hold dear, even while the Chinese Civil War breaks out around them.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
