I am going to have huge book hangover from this one. It is a tale of family, betrayal, love, power, and how choices effect generations/5(91). In Innis Lear it was believed that the reign of the last queen had been predicted by the stars--and had ended, too, because of them.

I also liked how the book was not afraid to go to dark places and make difficult decisions. None of the characters in The Queens of Innis Lear are likable, but their motives were always compelling. My 16 year-old self also cheered at the text’s criticism of King Lear, who’s pride and lack of empathy set the tragedy in motion to begin with.
