But if even half of the things said about them are true, they should go down in history as one of the most messed-up families ever. But when he was appointed pope as a compromise between two ruling families at the time, he made sure to set his own family up for the next generation. He was especially kind to his nephew Rodrigo Borgia who he put in charge of the papal army and made a cardinal.

Despite doing some good things, people immediately resented his obvious nepotism.

Perhaps no one has ever been less deserving of becoming a cardinal in the Catholic church than Rodrigo. Despite vows of celibacy he had at least five children that we know about. When he wanted to become pope he greased all the necessary palms to make sure it happened, buying himself the position. He ruthlessly suppressed anyone who disagreed with him - and there was a lot to disagree with. He lived an extravagant lifestyle, indulged in plenty of sex, and made sure to make huge amounts of money for him and his family.

My father, however, intended to go to Rome. The pope is dying, he explained, and there is a Spanish cardinal prepared to spend a lot of money to buy the office when the time comes. This Cardinal Borja will be needing a reliable banker.

Add to wish list. Violante discovers a Lucrezia unknown to those who see only a scheming harlot, and all the whispers about her brother, Cesare Borgia, never revealed the soul of the man who dances close with Violante. But those who enter the House of Borgia are never quite the same when they leave—if they leave at all. It deserves prizes.

China smashing. The characters have a vibrancy that brings them to life before our eyes, a sense of realness that makes them relatable and emotionally investing. The politics, rivalries, sadism, and excesses of the Italian Renaissance are well described and the plot lines moves very smoothly.

There a multitude of well fleshed out characters and, for this reason, it's a good book to savor more slowly than same. Bower has a real talent and I will be looking out for her next work.

I would recommend to historical fiction lovers as well as those who want to read a book that has everything from debauchery to betrayal and back again. This novel is not meant to be rushed through and I am not able to come close to describing all the people, intrigues and alliances in this review. The author does a wonderful job of combining the facts known about the Borgias with rumors and elaborations of those known to be around them but for which the history books say very little.
