Book & Author details:

Lady Macbeth by Melanie Karsak
(Daughter of Ravens #1)
Publication date: December 3rd 2014
Genres: Adult, Fantasy

Synopsis:
Something wicked this way comes . . .
Gruoch is born to rule, but long before she becomes Macbeth’s queen, ancient forces claim her soul.
Marked from birth by the old gods, Gruoch is initiated into the ancient religion of her ancestors and begins learning the mysteries of the Goddess Cerridwen. But not everything is as it seems. Soon the Battle Goddess Morrigu imposes her will, and Gruoch finds herself at the mercy of the Wyrd Sisters.
With King Malcolm plotting, the Wyrd Sisters schooling her in arcane craft, and haunted by dreams of a raven-haired man she’s never met, Gruoch feels her fate is not her own. That is, until she meets a druid named Banquo. Gruoch’s heart is swept away when Banquo awakens something in her more powerful than duty, magic, or destiny: love.
This retelling of Shakespeare’s classic work leads readers through an unforgettable saga of one woman struggling to escape her fate without blood on her hands.
Begin the Lady Mabeth Saga with Lady Macbeth: Daughter of Ravens.

I read a little Shakespeare in high school, some of his stories are cool, some are a little crazy lol but I liked them. So when I heard this was a retelling of the story Macbeth I wasn't sure but this story is awesome. Now it's dark and gritty and not so pretty but it's a wonderful story anyways. The writing is great! I love the atmospheric feel of the world the author has created. And if you read the original you'll probably hate Lady Macbeth, but no one talks about the beginning. You won't hate her anymore after you read this one. 

I am so impressed. I never thought how much I'd like the main character but I wasn't thinking of her as Lady Macbeth, I was thinking of her as Corbie. She's got is real bad from all sides. Damn if you don't love the bad guy, but you see she isn't the bad guy in here. That's the beauty of this whole thing. It's amazing! The women who don't want to be treated like cattle actually my cows are treated very kindly thank you very much. I mean it's horrible that people were treated as this back then. And this story is full of magic and passion and heartbreak and a haunting tale that will make you think!! I know that there will be more and I absolutely cannot wait to see where this is gonna go. We know the out come of the original Macbeth but I wanna see how it gets there!! I can wait and I'm now a huge fan!! Well done!! 5 paws from me!!
