Wanted to like this one as Caterina Sforza is easily one of the most fascinating people in Renaissance Italy, but I couldn't finish it. For starters, the book isn't about her, and that's my own fault for not taking other reviews to heart first. It's about her fictional, intolerably new-agey handmaiden Dea. I didn't pick this book to read about Dea, and I especially don't care about Dea's tarot readings as a plot device.
At some point I may come back to this one and give it another try now that I know what to expect, but right now... so many better books await.
Wanda McCaddon, by any name she uses, is always a superb narrator. Her talents are wasted on this one, but you can't win them all. I trust she got paid well anyway.

I really could not put this book down. I was really happy with the blend of fictional illustrative talenets and the use of historical accuracy the author used to tell the story. I will definitely be reading more books by Jeanne Kalogridis. However it looks like Audible only has one more of her books.
