Here's a Tad book that got past me-after being refreshed on The Tempest and Prospero while reading Ilium this looks pretty interesting-quote lifted from the author's website-

Caliban’s Hour

A fantastical sequel to Shakespeare's The Tempest replete with elements of both Beauty and the Beast and Robinson Crusoe. Twenty years after Prospero and Miranda have departed from their island of exile, Caliban, their scorned and abused former servant, seeks his revenge. Vowing to kill the primary source of his pain and disillusionment, Caliban holds Miranda captive, forcing her to listen to the wrenching tale of his early years on the island both before and after the fateful arrival of the banished duke of Milan and his beautiful daughter.

As Caliban prepares to slay the former object of his affections, Miranda's lovely and compassionate daughter, moved by his litany of woe, offers her own freedom in exchange for her mother's life. As Giulietta prepares to leave with Caliban, her selfless act of love completes the circle of desire, rejection, retribution, and renewal begun on the island. A lyrically romantic voyage of discovery charting the mysterious depths of the human heart and soul.
