Description

A lovely girl grows up in isolation where her father, a powerful magus, has spirited them to in order to keep them safe. We all know the tale of Prospero's quest for revenge, but what of Miranda? Or Caliban, the so-called savage Prospero chained to his will? In this incredible retelling of the fantastical tale, Jacqueline Carey shows listeners the other side of the coin-the dutiful and tenderhearted Miranda, who loves her father but is terribly lonely. And Caliban, the strange and feral boy Prospero has bewitched to serve him. The two find solace and companionship in each other as Prospero weaves his magic and dreams of revenge. Always under Prospero's jealous eye, Miranda and Caliban battle the dark, unknowable forces that bind them to the island even as the pangs of adolescence create a new awareness of each other and their doomed relationship. Contains mature themes.

Professional reviews

"Even after 400 years, Shakespeare's TEMPEST still captures the imagination. This reworking of the play is told alternately by Miranda and Caliban, who meet as children and grow increasingly close as they mature into teens. Alex Wyndham's portrayal of Caliban, the wild boy whom Prospero attempts to tame and enslave, is emotionally vivid, evoking the boy's curiosity and fear, wonder and loneliness. Gemma Dawson's rhythmic cadence and more restrained delivery highlight Miranda's roots in the European gentry, creating a stark contrast between the protagonists. Neither narrator sounds youthful, and listeners will have to remind themselves that Miranda and Caliban are quite young. As Prospero's schemes come to fruition--with the storm raging and the teens' fates sealed--Wyndham excels at providing the needed drama. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
