really liked it
Read from August 29 to September 06, 2012

Set in one of my favorite periods in history, the Renaissance, Ennis delivers a fascinating story. Full of historical figures, Da Vinci, Machiavelli, and the corruptible Borgia, the reader is treated to a novel that fully immerses them in this time period; the sights, sounds and full political machinations. What a fascinating time this was; the church all powerful and trying to stay that way, some of the greatest thinkers and philosophers are present and change is everywhere. This was a fantastic novel, very detailed and full of depth. Appreciated the afterword where much is explained. Highly recommend.
ARC from NetGalley.

Mike I liked this one one quite a lot as well, Diane. Certainly made me rethink the meaning of the term Machiavellian. Great review.


Diane S ☔ Thanks so much, Mike. Made me think as well.
