Dark Territory by J. Gabriel Gates and Charlene Keel was very interesting and entertaining. It was a little slow in the beginning but after a few chapters I started to get the feel of the story. This book, in a sense, is an awesome spin-off to Shakespeare s Romeo and Juliet. The only difference is the ending. I loved all the character's personalities, especially Ignacio s. The characters made the story seem like it could be real. I recommend this book to those who like mystical beings and martial arts.
