Blood and Beauty -The Borgias ~ Sarah Dunant

This was the first Sarah Dunant book that I have read, not sure why that is the case but definitely will look at the rest. The Borgia's were captivating and although I am a lover of Medieval and early Renaissance writing, I had not explored them before.

Dunant is well versed as a historian of this epoch in Italy and rightly so.Some of the details got bogged down, perhaps only because the family dynamics themselves were enthralling.

Recommended for all historical literature fans of this era.
