Joanna Courtney: Blood Queen - Part of Derby Book Festival

5th June 2019 £5

Joanna Courtney’s latest historical fiction series features Shakespeare’s Queens, the first being Lady Macbeth in Blood Queen.

Cold. Ruthless. Deadly. The myth of Lady Macbeth looms large. But behind the villainous portrait stands a real woman.

Scotland, 1020 AD - King Malcolm II is fading fast. It is North vs South, for two families have a claim on the inheritance of his crown. Who will gain the Scottish throne?

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 a brutal slaughter. In order to reclaim the life she was promised, she will learn to use every weapon at her disposal - even her son.

6:30pm - 7:30pm.
