The Devil's ueen Read ó 8 Summary Ñ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Jeanne Kalogridis Review The Devil's ueen To win Henri's love and enhance her fertility for which she would pay a price Against the lavish and decadent backdrop of the French court and Catherine's blood soaked visions of the future Kalogridis reveals the great love and desire Catherine bore for her husband Henri and her stark determination to keep her sons on the throne. I ve been awfully spoiled recently with plucking books off my shelves that are awesome Warning there be some spoilers My knowledge of Catherine de Medici is very basic I know the vague outline of her life and reputation and always was a bit sympathetic to her because let s be honest she really did draw the short straw in life and made the most of a crappy situation time after time I enjoyed that this story began with the sack of Rome when Catherine was a child and built up to the Massacre of St Batholomew s Day two of Renaissance Europe s most dramatic events in a time that was marred by dramatics I also enjoyed how the author really focused on Catherine not only as a sympathetic character but also showing what s stained her reputation in a better light and by this I m referring to her dabbles in the occult and astrology and how that played a roll in her life in both Florence and France and her abilities a ueen consort and later as regent I also really enjoyed how the author related her relationships with those around her from her uncle the Pope to her father in law husband and sons as well as a little touch on relationship with Mary ueen of Scots and her husband s mistress Diane de Poitiers Kalogridis does a fantastic job of balancing her natural sympathy towards Catherine with keeping as realistic as possible in that Catherine did some uestionable things like her dabbling in the occult but she did them for a reason to protect her own and children s rights to the crown I adored how the lead up to the Massacre played out as it was rather clever believable and for what I know thus far based on minor research and lectures from this past springrather accurate I really enjoyed Kalogridis style of writing and definitely plan on reading the rest her historical work in the future and I highly recommend her
