At night, he is the Prince of Shadows, the greatest thief in Verona—and he risks all as he steals from House Capulet.

These sudden feelings we share are way too complicated, too fraught, too intense. Then everything explodes and I'm forced to return home. My intentions have always been true, but now everyone's mad at me. I don't know who to turn to anymore . . . except to Max. He's the one I want to trust. But I'm not so sure I should.
