The second instalment in a prize-winning series charting the rise of the House of Medici as they become Masters of Florence and progenitors of the Renaissance.

Florence, 1469.

Lorenzo de' Medici is to be wed.

The marriage will cement a powerful alliance for his family.

But his heart belongs to another. Torn between love and power, he has become complacent. He has forgotten the bloody path he forged on his ascent to power, and the enemies left in his wake.

When the family's historical enemies and shadowy new conspirators put their bloody plot into action, the consequences will be terrible. In order to protect their supremacy, the Medici will enact a violent vengeance from which few will be spared.

Matteo Strukul was born in Padua in 1973 and has a Ph.D. in European law. His novels are published in twenty countries. He writes for the cultural section of 'Venerdì di Repubblica' and lives with his wife in Padua, Berlin and Transylvania.

Winner of prestigious Premio Bancarella 2017 (previous winners: Ken Follett, Umberto Eco).

600,000 copies sold in Italy; a Spiegel bestseller in Germany.

MARKET: The Borgias; The Tudors; Conn Iggulden.

'Exciting. With an excellent translation by Richard McKenna, a strong plot and well-defined characters, the book brings alive the life and culture of 15th-century Florence' Historical Novel Society
