Shrews and Fairies

Free Today on Amazon

I love a good, witty battle of the sexes, so it’s no surprise that “Taming of the Shrew” is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. However, I’ve never been too keen on how tame Kate became at the end of the play. It’s one reason why I love the movie version with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. If you think Kate is tamed by the end of the film, you and Petruchio have another thing coming.

While poking around the World Literature section of Amazon Kindle books, I found a play, “The Shrew Untamed.” It’s a sequel to Shakespeare’s play with a feisty Kate being her true self once again. Instant click.

I also grabbed a fantasy book in the fairy genre, set in contemporary Scotland. Love this kind of stuff. If you do, too, grab it while it’s still free.

  The Shrew Untamed by James Carter
Kate marries Petruchio in a state of submission, only to turn the tables on her husband and family with devilish brilliance. A sexy update to “The Taming of the Shrew” that is designed for 21st century audiences.

  Blood Faerie by India Drummond
Unjustly sentenced to death, Eilidh ran–away from faerie lands, to the streets of Perth, Scotland. Just as she has grown accustomed to exile, local police discover a mutilated body outside the abandoned church where she lives. Recognising the murder as the work of one of her own kind, Eilidh must choose: flee, or learn to tap into the forbidden magic that cost her everything.
