Intrigue, scandal, murder, and liasons.... all well-researched and grounded historically. This book made the era vivid while giving interesting, complex characters to love and hate. If you like Phillipa Gregory books ("The Virgin Queen", etc) or historical fiction of any kind, you'll like this.

Very interesting and dramatic! Tragic and creepy story about the Borgia's and their demise. Was a very fast read and I highly recommend it, but don't start it at bed time - you won't be able to put it down till it's finished!

I've read several books about Lucrezia and the Borgias, but this one is from a different point of view...that of Sancha of Aragon. Sister to Alfonso (who would marry Lucrezia and be murdered by the order of Cesare) and wife to Jofre (younger brother of Cesare), Sancha learns more than she ever wanted to know about the Borgias.

Absolutely excellent. The simple writing style makes the fact that it's all based on truth even more horrifying

Every bit as good as The Other Boleyn Girl. Read it in one day, it was so compelling. Will look for more by this author.
