From the author of the 'King's Blades' novels comes this tale of an impoverished nobleman who works as a apprentice to Nostradamus in Renaissance Venice. This is an excellent book and is actually the 3rd entry in a series, of which I have yet to find books one to two.
Alfeo Zeno and his Master get involved in the case of an eloping noblewoman and that adventure leads them to a gold-digging playboy, a murder, a spy and dark forces. This is a brilliant read with humour, drama and action. Zeno and his master must solve a murder, fight dark forces and ward off the city's deadly civil service. This is a wonderful read.
