I have just finished listening to this book and loved it. The characters of the dwarf and the female cook have been described so well you feel as thou..Show More »gh you know them personally. I cannot wait until the next book comes out........but I will have to. Even though I knew a lot about the Borgias this shows them from a different angle.......the lives of those in his household and how they see the Pope, his children and most importantly his mistress! This is a compelling book and will not disappoint!!!!
