Book of Interest: Toil and Trouble

Toil and Trouble seems very interesting as it's told from the witches point of view from the story Macbeth by William Shakespeare. A re-telling can be tricky because you still want the story to feel like it's connected to the original story yet have a different take on it. And this definitely seems different.

Something wicked this way comes.

The three fates—Riata, Cait, and Smertae—have always been guiding and protecting Scotland unseen, indirectly controlling the line of kings according to the old religion. When there is a disagreement between the weird sisters, Riata and Smertae will use men as pawns, and Smertae will direct Macbeth to a crown he was never meant to have.

This re-telling of Macbeth from the witches point of view is brought to life by Mairghread Scott (TRANSFORMERS: Windblade, LANTERN CITY), and illustrated by talented duo Kelly & Nichole Matthews. TOIL AND TROUBLE brings a new and inventive take on the tragedy we all know and love.
