As I read Imprimatur, Secretum and Veritas, I grew fond of those authors. So I was, normally, anxious to start reading the two books about Salai.
Those books are real disappointment. They are lacking style, intrigue, humor. Note on that last thing- humor, maybe it is as funny as others saw it, but as I was so deeply disappointed, I couldn't find it funny.
It seems to me, that they were written in a haste. Pitty, because it had some good potential.
The second book is a bit better than the first beca
This was the first I read from Monaldi & Sorti and expected a historical thriller. This was nothing like a thriller, no matter what the jacket said, but boy did I amuse myself with this book. I could really appreciate the writing style, as the book is narrated by Da Vincis adopted son and assistant, not exactly a person of higher learning. All his schemes of finding a certain book for his master in Rome read like a wellwritten comedy and made me laugh out loud a number of times. Excellent!

The better one of the first two books in the Leonardo da Vinci series of Monaldi & Sorti. I liked the writing style much more than the first one, even though it was in first-person letter style again. The idea of telling the same story four times, each time in greater detail, is very original.

Overall, an entertaining read about the reality and truth behind the discovery of America.
Less revealing than the first novel with Salai, but not less interesting to read about the myths revolving around the discovery of America.
