Summary The Medici Seal

Is employed by Cesare Borgia head of one of Italy's leading families Cruel and ruthless the Borgia punishes without mercy those who oppose him or who threaten him in any way And as Da Vinci and Matteo travel across Italy on the Borgia's business murder deceit and revenge follow in their trailFor Matteo carries with him a secret It is impossible to feel impartial towards the plight and experiences of Matteo an intelligent inuisitive ten year old who barely escapes death in Renaissance Italy As the story proceeds we are ingeniously led through omniscient eyes to view as this boy becomes a man Although initially faced with death under the hand of the single dimension mercenary Sandino Matteo is fortunately found and taken under the wing of the meticulous yet caring tutelage of one of the most famous artisans known in history Leonardo da Vinci I typed di Caprio in just now by accident The company was humorous light organized yet focused all the same all in all to devotedly serve the Maestro Leonardo da Vinci diligently as they could As I slept in the night this book left me pondering of the fickleness in human nature yet the hearts of gold such as with Elisabetta that can be found in times of adversity Elisabetta s character moved me in so many ways and I couldn t help but grieve as well for the sudden cruel and unwarranted passing of her family There is just so much to say about this book What I say barely gives it enough credit Cleanly and beautifully written I would almost want to be a character in the book to get a glimpse at Matteo himself and not Leonarda da Vinci
