This book is based on Shakespeare's Macbeth, but is based on Macbeth's daughter, Albia. I really like this book because it had romance, but with a bang had adventure. This book is for people who like a bit of romance with a lot of action that just keeps the book on going. The book makes lots of twist and turns that makes the reader wonder what is coming up next.
This book is about a girl named Albia who starts out living with her so-called mother who lives with her two sisters. Albia has a gift that some others would kill for. Albia has that power of second sight. Albia will go through a lot of troubles to understand her second sight. Albia is only a baby when she starts living with her new mother. Her real mother is the wife of Macbeth, Grelach, who is wicked and cruel. When Albia was born, her father said that a woman said that he would have sons. Albia was born and her mother had to give her up because her father hated her and wanted to have sons. Albia then had to leave her real mother to be eaten by the wolves. Her mother's servant then took to her new mother. Then when Albia grew up she was sent to live with the new king's general, Banquo, his son, Fleance, and his wife, Breda. Albia has fallen in love with her new stepbrother. Albia is now leaving her new family to set out for Fleance since he is searching for Macbeth and Grelach to kill them for taking his father's life. Albia is now torn between her only loved one and her blood that runs through her vains of a treacherous murderer, her own father. She will have to do many things and tasks before she will find her true self in her own life.
I can connect this book to the play Macbeth. Macbeth is what this book was based on and read off of. The author made the view point between two people who were stuck with their own disasters and treachery. This book is similar to the play for all those reasons.
I read this book in third quarter.
