The course of true love never did run smooth.

Demetrius and Lysander love Hermia. Hermia loves Lysander, but is betrothed to Demetrius-much to her dismay. And no one loves Helena, though her heart belongs to Demetrius. It seems that love could never be so complicated!

When Hermia and Lysander escape through the forest to elope, Demetrius chases them-and Helena chases him. With the magic of the forest bewitching the hand of fate, perhaps their dreams of love will come true. . . .

Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience with both the original play and prose retellings selected from the Your Midsummer Night's Dream writing contest on inkpop.com, this is the must-have edition of William Shakespeare's timeless classic.

"You are deluded, Romeo. Vampires do not have the capability to love. They are heartless."

The Capulets and the Montagues have some deep and essential differences. Blood differences. Of course, the Capulets can escape their vampire fate, and the Montagues can try not to kill their undead enemies. But at the end of the day, their blood feud is unstoppable.

So it's really quite a problem when Juliet, a vampire-to-be, and Romeo, the human who should be hunting her, fall desperately in love. What they don't realize is how deadly their love will turn out to be—or what it will mean for their afterlives. . . .

This riotous twist on the ultimate tale of forbidden romance is simply to die for.
