So excited to start the second of a three part series on her.

Madame Serpiente

I admit, my rating of this book will not be as high as it might have been had I been more attached to the entire method, though I do counsel those who read this review to take my comments with a grain of proverbial salt. Daiane was an ambitious person and manipulated Henry all the time!

All of the incessantly warring city-states on the peninsula? And reading the book, i could learn that she had a sad past. It is only when Henry shows her minimal affection to ensure she brings maame an heir that the Dauphine de Medici can rest easier. What was most interesting srpiente me, was the power women held in the French court.

The last thing was devastating for Catherine, because she was in love with Ipolito. The entire novel was based off Catherine pining for the man who would never love her back, and her love felt forced because I never saw a reason for her to love him. Henry at 14 is handsome but does not take much interest in his Italian wife, instead he is besotted with Diane de Poitiers, a wealthy widow twenty years his senior.

While it did not pull me in, many others have surely taken to you. The dialog is a bit stilted, but works great for Catherine. So far, I definitely want to continue to complete the series. Well done, Madam Plaidy, for your presentation. But faced with brutal murder, she’s soon torn between her love for her husband and her devotion to her brother Cesare… And in the days when the Borgias ruled Italy, no one was safe from the long arm of their power.


Pretty much the last 5 pages made me actually like her. View all 8 comments.

A sympathetic and well written account of Catherine de Medici’s first years plakdy the French court and her rise to power as queen of France and following her husband’s death as the country’s most powerful woman.
