Blood Queen

The myth of Lady Macbeth looms large, but behind the villainous portrait stands a real woman. This is her story.

Scotland AD 1020 – King Malcolm II is fading fast. It’s North vs South for two families with a claim on the inheritance of his crown, so who will gain the Scottish throne?

Meanwhile, on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, a flushed and nervous Cora MacDuff waits to marry her sweetheart, Macbeth. But her dreams are about to be stolen from her as the night she was hoping for turns into brutal slaughter. In order to reclaim the life she was promised she will learn to use every weapon at her disposal – even her own son.
