Product description

Review

"In this stand-alone, Carey evokes the same stunning worldbuilding and imagery of her Kushiel's Legacy and Sundering series, as she stirs new emotions from an old story and reveals another side to Shakespeare's epic play."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Carey turns Shakespeare's The Tempest on its head, in ways that are always supportable by the original text, with this brilliant deconstruction. The foreordained pattern of the play mixes beautifully with Carey's intricate characterization and eye for sensory detail, building mercilessly to dazzling, and devastating, tragic effect."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"An eye-opening departure from her previous fantasy yarns, Carey re imagines the back story of Shakespeare's The Tempest as a tale of star-crossed lovers...[Carey] transforms the largely passive Shakespearean Miranda into a dutiful yet dignified and ultimately tragic figure...Intriguing and impressive while remaining inextricable from its dramatic context."--Kirkus Reviews

"Infused with dark magic, broken trust, and lost innocence...Miranda and Caliban, both narrators with distinct voices, are given rich inner lives through Carey's delicate, sensitive portrayal."--Booklist
