Wickedly Divine Nov 19, 2006
In the 4th volume of Higuri's series about Cesare Borgia, starts with speculation about incest between Cesare and Lucrezia, when the siblings reunite. Another female character is also introduced; Sancha D'Aragon, Princess of Naples, wife of Cesare's youngest brother Jofre. Juan Borgia, Duke of Gandia also returns to become commander of the papal army. Juan however is incompetent and Cesare chafes under the restrictions of the cardinal's robes since he wants the job himself. Lucrezia confesses her love to Cesare, but Cesare deceives her by saying he only loves her like a sister. Cesare does this because he has plans for Lucrezia's next marriage that will further his schemes. Higuri illustrates her characters even more wonderfully in this volume, the costumes are definitely better and sexier, and the plot becomes more complex and convoluted as Cesare's schemes are woven skillfully with more poison. Delicious.
