Perhaps because I am a Leonardo, Medici, and Renaissance junkie, I loved this book and the wonderful surprise ending I think it was well researched and showed a real awareness of some of the over riding issues of Renaissance Italy, including the political intrigue, the foreign occupiers, the role of the church, abbeys and monasteries I think the section of the Borgias was brilliant, although I would like to have seen a bit resolution between Matteo and Leonardo at the end, if only because there was so much of the work where young Matteo was away from his master I found myself simultaneously intrigued and touched by this sensitive work of historical fiction Brava Theresa. Matteo, a 11 year old boy starts this book as the witness to a murder and his lucky escape from the murderer sets up the complex story of warring Sixteenth Century Italian city states The author knows her early Italian history and this drives the story of adventure, treasure and above all, the bonds that form and hold family friends Leonardo da Vinci s presence and the master pupil relationship they form while important to the story never takes over from the fact that this is Mattteo s story.Easy to read and fine for young adults, the story is complex enough to hold the attention and entertain adults as well. Fabulous read for the whole family Especially for our family who grew up in Tuscany The art, the descriptions, the story intertwined with the lives of the Medici da Vinci and the Giocondo and of course the Borgias are all gripping and make a fascinating read Unputdownable Our son 14 had been pestering us to read it so we succumbed around the pool in Turkeybrilliant.
