"Each character must face their darkest fears before the conclusion of this tale, and their entwined stories, distinct voices and viewpoints, and the incredible image we get of early Renaissance Florence and Rome are extraordinary in both their beauty and their hidden, terrible ugliness. This is a breathless, spellbinding read."
