review 1: It certainly was not worth the time... A few nice historical tidbits about Medici family, the artists with whom they surrounded themselves, and Florence in Rennaisance - but mostly very silly conspiracy theory based fluff. Author comes across as self absorbed and quite arrogant, very much in the pursuit of admiration of her own cerebral AND spiritual attributes. I don't recommend this book - I much enjoyed Sarah Dunants Birth of Venus, In the Company of the Courtesan, Sacred Heart, and the latest Blood and Beauty and was hoping for something like them, but this book utterly failed to satisfy.
review 2: "The Poet Prince" is a wonderful story that takes place both in modern times and also in the 1400's with the de Medici family. It weaves in the story of Bottic
... moreelli so beautifully, writing about the women who graced his paintings and giving them voice and life. This combination of fiction and historical fact so gracefully captures one's interest, the novel is like a Renaissance painting itself. The Christian lessons of this beautiful story, though they border on heresy, come from the heart and one can not put this compelling story down. I am giving this novel five stars. less

I tried, but I just can't do it. I think I may come back to it at another time.
I liked this whole series. Loved the historical references.
Again a book you can't put down. Loved it!
Brilliant! There has to be more...
