“A nice accompaniment for this spring’s The Borgias TV series, Poole’s hypnotic, richly detailed historical provides an illuminating portrait of Italy’s most powerful Renaissance family. . . . [An] aromatic elixir of political power plays, seductive romance, and dark derring-do.” Publishers Weekly
“Poole’s second historical title continues seamlessly from where Poison left us. . . . The characters are well drawn and the evocation of Renaissance Roman life is full of detail. The conclusion promises more conflict and adventure in the next book. . . . a good read. For historical fiction and romance readers.” Library Journal
On this day in 1493, Rodrigo Borgia, Pope Alexander VI signed the papal bull, Inter Caetera dividing the New World between Spain and Portugal. The signing of that bull happens to be the first scene in “The Borgia Betrayal”, coming June 7. You can read an excerpt here.
What does Showtime’s “The Borgias” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones” have in common? Actor Elyes Gabel has roles in both, playing Prince Djem in “The Borgias” and the warror Rakharo in “Game of Thrones”. Not bad for the former Guppy in the British hit “Casualty”.
