Loreenzo the Magnificent
When his best friend Marsel is stabbed to death just steps from his palace bedroom, Lorenzo de' Medici suspects those closest to him. Marsel's parting gift: a ragged, bloodstained tome of possible demonic origin, and stern instructions to keep it safe. As Lorenzo stalks Marsel's killer, he unravels a secret world behind the curtain of Florence's art and pious beauty – a world filled with secret societies, carnal pleasures, and a purpose far more important than his inheritance of the powerful Medici legacy. This is the first in an ongoing series following the exploits of a young Lorenzo de' Medici, featuring appearances by Leonardo da' Vinci and Sandro Boticelli.
Historical fiction for young adults and mature adventurers.
