Publisher's Summary

Eight years after the tumultuous events of The Master of Verona, Pietro Alaghieri is living in exile in Ravenna, enduring the loss of his famous father while secretly raising Cesco, the bastard heir to Verona's prince, Cangrande della Scala. 

Suddenly word of Cangrande's death reaches him, forcing Pietro to race back to Verona and prevent Cesco's rivals from usurping his ward's rightful place. But young Cesco is determined not to be anyone's pawn. Willful and brilliant, he defies even the stars. Meanwhile, far behind the scenes, a mastermind pulls the strings, moving the players towards a bloody finale. 

Born from Shakespeare's Italian plays, this novel explores the danger, deceit, and deviltry of early Renaissance Italy. Filled with swashbuckling adventure, unrequited love, and brutal treachery, this epic journey recalls the best of Bernard Cornwell, Sharon Kay Penman, and Dorothy Dunnett.
