Miranda in Milan

By Katharine Duckett
Miranda in Milan by Katharine Duckett digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

With Miranda in Milan, debut author Katharine Duckett reimagines the consequences of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, casting Miranda into a Milanese pit of vipers and building a queer love story that lifts off the page in whirlwinds of feeling.

After the tempest, after the reunion, after her father drowned his books, Miranda was meant to enter a brave new world. Naples awaited her, and Ferdinand, and a throne. Instead she finds herself in Milan, in her father’s castle, surrounded by hostile servants who treat her like a ghost. Whispers cling to her like spiderwebs, whispers that carry her dead mother’s name. And though he promised to give away his power, Milan is once again contorting around Prospero’s dark arts.

With only Dorothea, her sole companion and confidant to aid her, Miranda must cut through the mystery and find the truth about her father, her mother, and herself.

“Love and lust, mothers and monsters, magicians and masked balls, all delivered with Shakespearean panache.” —Nicola Griffith, author of Hild

Miranda in Milan is somehow both utterly charming and perfectly sinister, and altogether delightful. A pleasure for any lover of romance, myth, and magic—whether or not they're fans of the Bard.” —Cherie Priest, author of Boneshaker and I Am Princess X

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

“Doña pendeja no sabía que esto tenía que ver con La Tempestad, así que al principio estaba absurdamente confundida (¿nos sorprende? No nos sorprende). La verdad es que llegué a este libro porque lo obtuve gratis (de manera digital) mediante un mailing list que tiene Tor Books (está súper cool e interesante, se los recomiendo que si quieren libros gratis y probar cosas nuevas). Estaba dentro de una colección para el mes del orgullo de libros cortos que tenían algún tipo de representación a la comunidad. Así que, ¿el romance? Meh. ¿La historia en sí? Luego del principio confuso (porque dependes de La Tempestad para entender el inicio), es... equis. No es malo, pero tengo muchas quejas con la historia que sólo se pueden explicar con spoilers. O sea, el libro no es malo, pero funciona de relleno para tu reading challenge. Fuera de eso, no lo recomiendo.”
