The third in what is likely to be a five-part series of historical novels, this follows the authors' other massive tomes: Imprimatur and Secretum. I enjoyed this book, which combines intrigue, history, and local color (it is set in Vienna at the beginning of the 18th century) in a really vivid way, but this volume adds a note of magic realism that is new and a bit of a departure from the others. Not yet available in English, (written in Italian; I read it in German) but it will be eventually be...more
I liked the change of setting of this third installment but there wasn't really a satisfactory conclusion and even more added bunkum in this than usual, and the notes at the end again back up their wild conspiracy theories as 'verified' fact, yet if such evidence existed why are two obscure Italians the only ones to find it - plus a load of anti-vaccination worthy of pinhead Jenny McCarthy.
Not as surprising as the two first books but I enjoyed tremendously.
For those familiar with Monaldi and Sorti's books you will rejoice at finding your favorite character(s) again, this time set in Vienna under the benevolent rule of Joseph 1st and under the watchful gaze of a flying ship and the Neugebäude Palace.
Again, secrets are not what you think they are...
Interesting from a history point of view.
The storyline itself was not that good, very long build-up with a weak plot!

Their first book was the best.
een teleurstelling na de eerdere boeken van Monaldi & Sorti. Fantasie vermengd met saaie beschrijvingen.
