Fire Queen : Shakespeare's Ophelia as you've never seen her before . . . Paperback / softback

Part of the Shakespeare's Queens series

Paperback / softback


Lover or leader? Weakling or warrior? Madwoman or misfit?Escape into the untold story of Shakespeare's Ophelia . . . As a young girl, Ofelia stood frozen as her mother threw herself on her father's funeral pyre.

Such is the fate, she learned, of the devoted wife and in that moment, she swore never to belong to any man.

Years later, she is a force to be reckoned with: right hand woman to the newly crowned Prince Hamlet, to whom she has sworn her sword and her undying loyalty, but refuses his true desire . . . her hand in marriage. When Hamlet's jealous uncle plots against him, Ofelia will have to use every wile at her disposal to keep her prince safe from those who wish him harm.

Yet in the end, it could be her unruly heart that is the greatest betrayer of all. A brand new Historical fiction series by the bestselling author of the Queens of Conquest series, her new trilogy unearths the real women behind Shakespeare's most infamous queens . . .
