The Queens of Innis Lear Reviews

  • Cindy ✩☽ Savage Queen ♔

    Read an excerpt of this and honestly I’m not sold on it yet. But maybe it gets better during the second half?

    ---

    Re-reading this synopsis, this book sounds pretty similar to Three Dark Crowns. Not sure how I feel about that...

    ---

    After reading the blurb, all I can say is...





    I am so ready!

    Thank you to NetGalley and Macmillan - Tor/Forge for a digital galley of this novel.

    This is a retelling of the Shakespeare play King Lear mainly identifiable by the leading characters of Lear and his three daughters along with his decision to carve up his kingdom to benefit the daughters who can express their love for him better than her sisters. The main problem is that you have to read way, way into the book before you get to that pithy bit of Shakespeare's maneuvering of characters.

    It's been awhile since I've really challenged myself with a proper adult high fantasy novel, and I can proudly say that I'm glad it was this one that I took a chance on. A retelling of Shakespeare's King Lear, The Queens of Innis Lear faithfully draws on the same interpersonal conflicts between complex, morally gray characters found in the original play, but also infuses their world and societies with a breath of magic that serves to

    I love KING LEAR.

    When I took Shakespeare in college, I wrote my research paper on Edmund. I argued that he had little chance to be anything but a villain given the thoughtless mistreatment of bastards at that time. He wore his illegitimacy like a scarlet letter, and even more than Hester Prynn’s, his crime was not a crime.

    So of course when I heard that Tessa Gratton’s THE QUEENS OF INNIS LEAR was a fantastical retelling of KING LEAR, I leapt at the opportunity to read i

    It begins when a wizard cleaves an island from the mainland, in response to the king destroying her temple.


    What begins?

    Just that easily, I was hooked.

    The spectacular prologue was immediately followed by an introduction to a character and an island that were so vivid, so magical, that I wanted to jump up and down shrieking, “I want to talk to trees! I want to see a bird’s dreams! I want the wind to be my messenger!”

    I want to live in this world!

    Characters that I’d thought I knew and knew well became infinitely more complex. More damaged. More covetous. Anger became fury. Thoughtless remained thoughtful but became loyal and well-intentioned as well. Good became naive, became heartbroken, became a strong and worthy queen.

    And a story I already loved became something so much more.

    Did it hurt?

    Absolutely.

    Tragedy is tragedy, and Shakespearen tragedy . . . WHUH.

    But Gratton so expertly crafted this expanded version that despite the respect she clearly has for this tale and its creator, she was able to give us a less bleak future. Those left standing are worthy of their survival. They’ve learned from Lear’s mistakes and don’t repeat them. They are poised to let their island heal their wounds, healing their island in return.

    THE QUEENS OF INNIS LEAR more than a tragedy. It’s life lessons. How shutting yourself off from the ones who love you can be the root of your own destruction. It’s about recognizing when someone can be saved and when they can’t. It’s hard choices and unbridled hope.

    It’s magic.

    The Queens of Innis Lear is a fantasy retelling of King Lear.

    It begins with the birth of an island, with one of the most breathtaking prologues I've read in a while. It draws you in, and you'll need that, because this may be a well-written story with multilayered characters and intricate political dynamics, but it's also a very slow tome of almost 600 pages and the retelling of a tragedy.

    I decided to read this because I loved Tessa Gratton's Before She Was Bloody story in the anthology Three Sid

    3 1/2 stars

    I enjoyed this book, but I didn’t love it. It was well written, and the author did a great job of adding depth to the story of King Lear, while staying fairly true to the overall story. It is not an exact retelling; new connections are created between characters, and some of the story lines and plot elements have been adjusted, but the author does a good job of expanding on the original play, while staying true to themes. I was charmed to see some exact dialogue from the play sprinkle
