This is the story of a drug deal gone bad.

Having committed the crime of selling a potent poison to a desperate youth, a destitute apothecary must decide how to spend his ill-gained fortune. Resolving to start his career afresh, he flees to the city of Verona to set up a new shop of medicinal healing and alchemical discovery. But plans go awry when he finds himself in the middle of a woeful tragedy he had unwittingly helped cause. Can his knowledge of nature's secrets and the inspiration of a fairy queen help restore the six lives lost? Will his exploits go undetected by a hellbent inquisitor and a noble assassin? Or was the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet only the beginning of Verona's doom?

This sick-minded sequel is both travesty and tribute to Shakespeare's classic play. New characters are introduced as old ones are re-envisioned in a madcap escapade of murder, magic, mystery, man-eating, and malicious mayhem. No flesh is safe from the eerie evil hidden in the minds of men, not even the flesh of the dead...
