review ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ø Sarah Dunant review In the Name of the Family Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ny of a young diplomat named Niccolo Machiavelli It is 1502 and Rodrigo Borgia a self confessed womaniser and master of political corruption is now on the Papal throne as Alexander VI His daughter Lucrezia aged twenty two already thrice married and a pawn in her father's plans is discovering her own power And then there is Cesare Borgia brilliant ruthless and increasingly unstable; it is his relationship with the diplomat Machiavelli which offers a master class on the dark arts of power and politics What. This is the second in Sarah Dunant s series of book about the Borgias but it works well as a standalone novel However on the strength of this I will definitely be adding the earlier one to my TBR pileSarah Dunant injects colour and life into a cast of real life characters who were already pretty colourful Rodrigo Borgia risen to become Pope Alexander VI despite siring illegitimate children including Cesare and Lucrezia with a series of mistresses For all the bombast and hyperbole about the wonders of Rome it was Valencia that had made Rodrigo Borgia what he is a man in love with women wealth orange blossom and the taste of sardines Cesare Borgia the brilliant soldier and tactician who eschews sleep in order to wrong foot his enemies and sometimes his allies This is who he is who he has always been pressing onwards thinking on his feet delighting in being three steps ahead of the next man If there is any other way of living then Cesare Borgia does not know it The beautiful Lucrezia Borgia the family s prize marriage pawn deployed like a weapon in pursuit of the Borgias territorial ambitions The Pope s daughter conuering city after city with charm rather than cannon The story of the Borgias has it all intrigue murder betrayal corruption power politics jealousy revenge anda bit murder for good measure The author does a good job of guiding the reader through the power struggles alliances territorial gains and losses whilst keeping the entertainment level high Perfect for lovers of historical fiction my only reservation with the book is that it ends uite suddenly skipping forward ten years to a short epilogue I would have liked to learn in detail what happened to Lucrezia and Macchiavelli in the intervening years I received an advance reader copy courtesy of NetGalley and publishers Little Brown GroupVirago in return for an honest reviewTo read this and review of other great books visit my blog
