Rgz Street Team: Sarah Reviews Lady Macbeth's Daughter by Lisa Klein


The rgz Street Team is a group of teens who bring YA reviews to our blog, led by Postergirl Miss Erin. Find out more.

Today, Sarah reviews Lady Macbeth's Daughter by Lisa Klein:


"Albia grew up with no knowledge of her mother or father. She didn't know that her father was the powerful Macbeth. Instead, she knows the dark lures of Wychelm Wood and the moors, where she has been raised by three strange sisters. Macbeth seeks out the sisters to foretell his fate, which entangles Albia's life as well.

"She even falls in love with Fleance, Macbeth's rival for the throne. Albia learns that she has second sight and she must decide whether to ignore the terrible future she foresees or whether she should try to change it. Will she be able to save the man she loves from her murderous father? And can she forgive her parents for all their wrongs, or must she destroy them in order to save Scotland?

"I love a retelling of another book. Particularly Shakespeare's books, because it is interesting to be in someone else's shoes. Lady Macbeth's Daughter kept with the storyline well and was very entertaining. Albia is a very kick-ass girl for before the Renaissance. I loved her personality and how she was such a free spirit. I also loved how the relationship with Albia and Fleance developed. It was very cute. I also liked how Macbeth was developed. It was awesome that it was from another character's view, rather then just Albia's. The plot made it such a quick and interesting read. I also think that this was an original retelling of Macbeth. The writing was also well detailed. I would check this book out, if you are looking for a strong independent female character." --Sarah

Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.
