 Have you ever thought of Shakespeare as a fast-paced, action-filled, page-turning…novel?!

Shakespeare plays on stage make for fantastic theatrics! But when you read it as a book…some of it’s glory can be lost. This novelization of Macbeth uses a more modern language and narration to capture the story as a novel.

The story of Macbeth tells the tragedy of a Scottish general who is told by witches that one day he will be king. Macbeth, urged by both his wife and his own selfish ambition, murders the king and takes the throne. The real story takes off once Macbeth is king and civil war erupts.

This book is part of an expanding series that retells Shakespeare into fiction.

In Othello, Shakespeare creates powerful drama from a marriage between the exotic Moor Othello and the Venetian lady Desdemona that begins with elopement and mutual devotion and ends with jealous rage and death. Shakespeare builds many differences into his hero and heroine, including race, age, and cultural background. Yet most readers and audiences believe the couple’s strong love would overcome these differences were it not for Iago, who sets out to destroy Othello. Iago’s false insinuations about Desdemona’s infidelity draw Othello into his schemes, and Desdemona is subjected to Othello’s horrifying verbal and physical assaults.
