Poison in the Blood characters ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Or power her father and brother are willing to poison their enemies Her family are murderers After discovering that her new husband is next to die Lucrezia struggles to help him escape from Rome before the assassins strike Against a barrage of political intrigues papal spies and diabolical tricks Lucrezia uses all her wits to defy her family and save her husband from assassination. This was a disappointment for me The story of Lucrezia and the Borgias is very loosely linked to this novel The inaccuracies were great The timeline was wrong there was no mention of key people eg Caterina Sforza or Lucrezia s first or third husband I didn t particularly like any of the characters Cesare is stereotype bad guy Alexander is a cold unloving cruel father Lucrezia is a little bit Mary Sue The ending was ridiculous I won t spoil it for anyone that actually wants to read the book but let s just say it s pretty far from the historical record The one good thing was that there wasn t a hint of incest

Poison in the Blood characters ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Lucrezia Borgia fights to save her husband from assasination by her powerful family 1497 Renaissance Rome As the teenage daughter of Pope Alexander VI Lucrezia Borgia is a young noblewoman immersed in all the glamor of the Vatican Palace Yet after a brutal killing shocks the city Lucrezia learns that a dark truth lies beneath the surface of the Papal Court in their ruthless uest f. If you know nothing about the Borgias specifically Lucrezia I think you will REALLY enjoy this book On the other hand if you have a decent background knowledge of the Borgia family and your a stickler for historical accuracy this one might drive you a little batty Then again it may just be meI really wanted to love this book and I think if I were completely unfamiliar with the history of the Borgias or if the books subject were a completely fictional family I would have The story itself was very well written and thought out I cant say it enough if your not overly concerned with historical accuracy this is probably a just cant put it down kind of bookUnfortunately I like accuracy and this is presented as a story based specifically on the Borgias so my expectation was that while it was fiction it would be fairly true to the major facts and events in that families history at least about the main character Lucrezia Instead I realized right off the bat some rather important historical facts were completely disregarded while others were just changed as if rewriting history I understand the authors need to do this to develop the characters in a way that would make this particular storyline work It was just frustrating to read something and have to stop and make sure I read it correctly because I was constantly uestioning my own memory Little discrepancies here and there don t bother me After all it is history and we have so many uestions about what really happened in the past that there is definitely room for interpretation For me that s where the fiction part of historical fiction comes in I love watching how different authors interpret known facts and come up with different stories For most fans of this genre I would think that s the best part and why we consistently read so many books on the same topic dynasty or family I just have a hard time when the story is unbelievable because it s based on actions andor events I know are inaccurate or never happenedTo give an example Just imagine a few hundred years from now someone writes an historical fiction about JFK In this hypothetical authors version Marilyn Monroe is the one that shoots him You might have a few What moments with that Even though we may never know the whole story of what exactly happened on the grassy knoll we know enough to say it s a fairly safe bet it wasn t Marilyn since she was already history herself It s just hard to enjoy or get drawn into a story that colors that far outside the linesI realize this is fiction and as such authors always have the freedom of poetic license It just caused me to finish the book with an overwhelming impression that I would have enjoyed it so much if it had been written about a fictitious family that people might or might not assume was very loosely based on the Borgias That s just my opinion and as I stated previously I am a bit picky about sticking with the historical facts and then filling in the blanks with the fiction If you don t have any prior knowledge of the Borgia family or you aren t all that particular or clear about their history it s a very entertaining story that will be hard to put down I would just recommend that anyone new to The Borgias keep reading There is so much to this family and in my opinion the truth or at least what we know of it is one of histories most fascinating and intriguing stories
