We all know the tale of Prospero’s quest for revenge, but what of Miranda’s? Orthat of Caliban, the so-called savage Prospero chained to his will?
In this incredible retelling of the fantastical tale, Jacqueline Carey shows readers the other side of the coin, the dutiful and tender-hearted Miranda, who loves her father but is terribly lonely.
And Caliban, the strange and feral boy Prospero has bewitched to serve him. While Prospero weaves his magic and dreams of revenge, these two will find solace and companionship in each other. Miranda and Caliban is best selling fantasy author Jacqueline Carey’s gorgeous retelling of The Tempest.
With hypnotic prose and a wild imagination, Carey explores the themes of twisted love and unchecked power that lie at the heart of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, while serving up a fresh take on the play’s iconic characters. It is dazzling.
