Overview

The Borgia Mistress: A Novel by Sara Poole

From the author of Poison and The Borgia Betrayal, comes a new historical thriller, featuring the same intriguing and beautiful heroine: Borgia court poisoner, Francesca Giordano

Mistress of death Francesca Giordano—court poisoner to the House of Borgia—returns to confront an ancient atrocity that threatens to extinguish the light of the Renaissance and plunge the world into eternal darkness. As the enemies of Pope Alexander VI close in and the papal court is forced to flee from Rome, Francesca joins forces with her lover, the brilliant and ruthless Cesare Borgia to unravel a conspiracy that strikes at the heart of Christendom. But when a shattering secret from her past imperils her precarious hold on sanity, only Francesca's own courage and resolve can draw her back from the brink of madness to save all she values most.

I have enjoyed this series very much. The first book is still my favorite. The second one good too. This last one i felt still left me hanging. For example...what happens with juan, or rocco? Does borgia let cesare live his life as he dreams? What the freak happened to morrozi?

This is Rachel's cave. There is a purple curtain over the entrance, flanked by two golden torches. On the inside, it is awash in color, covered with colorful art projects, handwoven carpets, and paint stains. In one corner, there is a dresser and a personal bathroom. Rachel comes here when she isn't at her family's mansion.

I suppress a yelp as she grabs my injured arm, get to my feet, and follow her with downcast eyes.

Now that i have finished this book, i raise my rating from weak 2 stars to a mediocre 3. The last 15% of the book was acceptable.
