Kate Danley – Queen Mab
Today I’m very pleased to show all of you an exciting new book by the wonderful Kate Danley. Queen Mab.
Two demigods both alike, but one of day and one of night, in fair Verona do meddle with the Houses of Capulet and Montague…
When Faunus, the god of daydreams, breaks the heart of Queen Mab, revenge can be the only answer. Using the most powerful families in Verona, they wage their war against one another,
and place their final bets upon the heads of two teenagers, one named Romeo and the other named Juliet.
But when Queen Mab meets a gentleman named Mercutio, the world changes. She falls in love and will do anything, even if it means destroying the world, to save him. Will it be enough to stop the tragedy? Or only spur it forward to its terrible end?
Weaving Shakespeare’s original text into a new fantasy, fans of The Woodcutter will delight in this loving retelling by award-winning author Kate Danley. Experience the romance and passion of Romeo & Juliet from a different point of view – through the eyes of the bringer of dreams… Queen Mab.
