Présentation de l'éditeur

"Oh then I see Queen Mab hath been with you..."

Everyone knows Romeo & Juliet, but what if it isn't the whole story? What if Queen Mab, who is mentioned in only one speech in the entire play, is actually responsible for all the tragedy about to strike the Houses of Montague and Capulet? And her love for Mercutio is the key to everything...

Weaving Shakespeare's original text into a new story, fans of The Woodcutter will love this latest retelling by award-winning author Kate Danley. Experience the romance of Romeo & Juliet from a different point of view - through the eyes of the bringer of dreams... Queen Mab.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 you don't have to be a Shakespeare fan to enjoy it 16 octobre 2013
Par Mia - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have to admit, I like Shakespeare but I just *like* him. I have never read his works outside of school and I don't go to the Bard's plays. However, being a fan of Danley's previous books I decided to give this one a try as well and I am so glad that I did! While the prose is a bit more elegant and in line with the FEEL of Shakespeare's work, it doesn't try to replicate it -- to me this is a big plus. It's entirely readable - and enjoyable! - for someone who prefers just simpler writing styles. SO! If you saw "Shakespeare" or "Romeo and Juliet" and were scared, FEAR NOT! :)

The story itself is lovely. This book is a beautifully crafted story, inspired by the Queen Mab soliloquy in Romeo & Juliet. Queen Mab is the bringer of dreams and watches over the fair city of Verona every evening. A contest with Faunus, the bringer of daydreams, engages Queen Mab into a fight over the citizens of Verona and the houses of Capulet and Montague, which brings the reader into the familiar world we know from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Full of beautiful imagery and extremely creative insight, we get to see what happens before the fateful meeting of R&J and how these "star crossed lovers" were overseen by two demi-gods who guided their eventual outcome over the course of hundreds of years.

If you liked Danley's "The Woodcutter" then you will love Queen Mab. It is full of the same unique interpretations of existing lore and extremely well-written that even I as a non-fan of Shakespeare went off to buy Romeo & Juliet immediately afterward, just to continue the tone set by this book.

What a splendid story of love both gained and lost, and of friendship shattered then regained. "Queen Mab" offers a whole new look to Romeo and Juliet's love story, bringing a new appreciation to the classic story. Queen Mab and her heart of ice drew me in and kept me entangled rooting for true love, and oh! How I despised the awful Faunus and his trickery! I really love new takes on old stories and this one did not let me down.. Well played, Kate Danley, we'll played..

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Queen Mab 1 octobre 2013

I must admit, I liked this story much better than Shakespeare's version. Although I loved the depth of emotion in the original play, the ending was never satisfactory. I am glad that the story has been modified, turning the tragedy to joy instead. I am also glad that dear Mercutio was given a happy ending, of sorts. I never liked his untimely end.

Queen Mab is definitely a character. Turned bitter by Faunus when he betrays her and breaks her heart, she turns her wrath on him and his favored Montagues. She uses the friendship of House Capulet and turns him against Montague. Faunus and Mab use the Montagues and Capulets in their personal war like pieces in a chessboard. It isn't until a hundred years pass that they raise the stakes and things draw to an end. It is a terrible thing to see young lovers caught between the games of the demigods.

I would recommend this book to others, and I have enjoyed reading many of Kate Danley's other works.

*I received an ARC copy of this book in return for an honest review.*

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting back story to Romeo and Juliet 12 janvier 2014
Par j. frzz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you've read "Romeo and Juliet"....this book, Queen Mab, makes a
compelling read into the mythology that might have influenced Shakespeare.
People of his time were much more familiar with the myths of old than we are
today. The speech....short as it was, by Romeos friend, which mentioned
Queen Mab, was as beautiful as it was mysterious. So why was Queen Mab
mentioned at all? This book by Danley answers this question and then some.
I gave it a three star rating because I felt, at times, that not enough information
about the myth and how it all worked, was given. This led to some confusion
at times. Also...at the end of the story...having already reached a climax and a
suitable ending.....more paragraphs were given to wrap up what didn't need any more.
to be said. All in all though...an interesting read for anyone who is interested in delving
into ancient myths and a more complete understanding of what may have influenced
people of that era.

It has been a long time since I've read a book straight through in one day but, I could not put this one down! The writing was beautiful and the blending of the two styles was very well done.
