Such Sweet Sorrow
by Jenny Trout


Never was there a tale of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo…But true love never dies. Though they’re parted by the veil between the world of mortals and the land of the dead, Romeo believes he can restore Juliet to life, but he’ll have to travel to the underworld with a thoroughly infuriating guide.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, may not have inherited his father’s crown, but the murdered king left his son a much more important responsibility—a portal to the Afterjord, where the souls of the dead reside. When the determined Romeo asks for help traversing the treacherous Afterjord, Hamlet sees an opportunity for adventure, and the chance to avenge his father’s death.

In an underworld filled with leviathan monsters, ghoulish shades, fire giants and fierce Valkyrie warriors, Hamlet and Romeo must battle their way through jealousy, despair, and their darkest fears to rescue the fair damsel. Yet finding Juliet is only the beginning, and the Afterjord doesn’t surrender souls without a price…

Those allegations were true, and they shamed Romeo into justifications that sounded hollow even as he spoke them. “I had no idea what I would face here. I needed someone who had  a passing acquaintance with the myths and lore of the underworld. You have that. It may come as small comfort to you, but if we are trapped here, and if we can’t save Juliet… at the very least, you might be able to save me.”
“Our chances of being trapped here are not certain. It's quite likely, but it's not certain. But does it matter?" Hamlet faced him finally, his ice blue eyes even more unnatural in the golden light that lit the pale brown sky. "You were willing to go into the abyss for your love before. Now you're here. You had nothing to lose, and you still stand to gain everything. If we find your Juliet, we might not be able to get back to Midgard, that's true. But at least you'll be together."
It spoke well of the prince, that he could have hope for a man he had every reason now to hate. ”You think we can find her?"

"I think we have nothing better to do, if we're exiled to death so prematurely. But you can't give up now."
