About the Author

Ava Reid is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the gothic fantasies A Study in Drowning, Juniper & Thorn, and Lady Macbeth. She lives in California.


"Lady Macbeth is a dark, elegant, heart-stirring novel, beautifully written, rich with the history of language and of medieval Scotland. This tale of a tortured, appealing, resourceful woman carves its own life from the Scottish play in a unique and powerful way. I loved every page."--Louisa Morgan, author of The Ghosts of Beatrice Bird

"Hail, Queen! Ava Reid has done it again in this gothic, atmospheric reclamation of the story of Lady Macbeth. Scotland's cold will seep into your bones, but the kernel of hope that burns in all of Reid's stories will keep you warm . . ."--Vaishnavi Patel, New York Times bestselling author of Kaikeyi

"This is a darkly gorgeous feast of a book, rich with irony and invention. I was spellbound from the very first page."--Freya Marske, internationally bestselling author of the Last Binding trilogy

"Ava Reid has composed a masterpiece of atmosphere and suspense. Lady Macbeth is a love letter to women whose magic and power will not stay silent. Reid's prose, shimmeringly poetic as always, carries a story that will curl around your heart and linger in your bones."--Victoria Lee, nationally bestselling author of A Lesson in Vengeance

"A familiar tale made fresh by Ava Reid's skillful and deliberate pen, Lady Macbeth is a reinvention and a reclaiming of a literary figure we already think we know. . . . a surprising and highly satisfying read."--Kendare Blake, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

"Lady Macbeth is a knife of a book: bloodstained, sharply beautiful, and necessary. The novel doesn't retell Shakespeare so much as it slices cleanly through, revealing what was hidden beneath. I couldn't look away."--Alix E. Harrow, New York Times bestselling author of Starling House

"As fierce and unrelenting as the Scottish wind, Reid paints a tender, wholly original portrait of one of Shakespeare's most infamous characters. Fans of Circe will devour this story of a woman's survival in a world that seeks to make her small. There's one thing about Ava Reid; she doesn't miss."--Sasha Peyton Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Witch Haven

"Precise, unflinching, and soaringly ambitious, Lady Macbeth reimagines the story of Macbeth to perfection. Here, our Lady is endlessly, deservedly complex, and Reid's prose cuts to the bone."--Grace D. Li, New York Times bestselling author of Portrait of a Thief

"Deftly told and richly imagined, Lady Macbeth is a gothic fever dream with sharpened teeth."--Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of The Foxglove King

"Lady Macbeth is a novel etched with a scalpel touch, flawlessly delivering the darkest depths of human relationships as well as the emotional brilliance of catharsis. A triumph of a retelling."--Shelley Parker-Chan, bestselling author of She Who Became the Sun

"Lady Macbeth swept me away to a gothic Scotland, with danger, magic, and heartache at every turn of the page."--Isabel Ibañez, #1 New York Times bestselling author of What the River Knows
