Battles, deceit, and loyalty abound in Cooney's masterful reworking of Shakespeare's MACBETH. Her spellbinding story clarifies the plot of the classic play with its use of modern prose and its addition of engaging new characters whose stories help fill in the gaps left in the original. The resulting story, written for young adults, will enthrall adult listeners as well. Narrator Charlotte Parry's native British accent is fitting, but she excels most when she invokes the Scots dialect, whether speaking as a male, a female, or the "wyrd sisters." The strength of the story, combined with Parry's talent, will keep listeners engaged for the entire production and shivering at the voices of the witches long after the last word.
