Lady Mary is a ward of Lord and Lady Macbeth whose life is forever changed when her father, Lord Cawdor, betrays the Scottish king -- and is hanged as a traitor. In an instant, Mary has lost both her father and future. Now she's trapped in a castle with a power-hungry couple who will do anything to get what they want -- and are willing to crush anyone in their way. Including Mary. As the murderous events of Shakespeare's play unfold around her, Mary must struggle to survive -- and do what she can to prevent more deaths. But can a lone girl save lives when a legion of Scottish lords cannot?

Reader reviewed by Noel Furniss, Teen Demi-Goddess

By the pricking of my thumbs...

Murder, betrayal, blood, and fear. So goes the story of Macbeth, the mad King of Scotland. Many have read his story, seen it preformed on a stage as the drama swept them in. But what of his people, and the side characters who seemingly meant so little? What is their story? What did they see as their beloved Lord Macbeth went mad with power? This is their story.

This is the story of a traitor's daughter, a scullery maid, a servant, and the sons of nobles. How are these five important to Macbeth's story? Can they see through the darkness of madness, greed, loss, and and betrayal to discover the truth? And who can they trust? Can they get out before it's too late? Or do they even deserve to be saved?
Something wicked this way comes.


I absolutely adored Enter Three Witches. It was dark and enthralling, with a constant underlying mystery that kept me wondering who was trustworthy, and trying to decide who I should like and who I should dislike. The story takes an interesting spin a little over halfway through. It threw me for a loop, and left me begging to find out how it would end. I was initally interested in this book because of my deep love for Shakespeare. Those who have to read Macbeth in school and don't exactly understand the plot, this book might help you understand a little better. And for those who love Shakespeare, Caroline B. Cooney has taken one masterpiece to make another. I HIGHLY suggest this book to anyone with a love of dark plots, romance, and mystery.

Reader reviewed by Mairi

Mary was always well loved by her parents, but her childhood was far from happy- the boy she was supposed to marry, Davey, died in a tragic accident and left her devestated. Not long after, she became a ward of Macbeth. She was well liked there, though Macbeth and his lady were distant and Ildred, Lady Macbeth's seamstress, despised her.

My friend read this book before I did, which was why I was familiar with the title when I saw it in the library. I had been looking for another book (of a far different genre) but this looked interesting, so I decided to try it. This is a beautiful book, not only in content but also in design, and I read it bit by bit.

The author assumes her readers will be familiar with Macbeth (I've read it, but not in long time) so I recommend giving Shakespeare a try first.
