"A delightful romp through the backstory of 'Romeo & Juliet." - Chicago Sun-Times

Cangrande della Scala is everything a man should be. Daring. Charming. Ruthless. To the poet Dante, he is the ideal Renaissance prince - until Dante's son discovers a secret that could be Cangrande's undoing.

Thrust into the betrayal surrounding Verona's prince, Pietro Alighieri must navigate a rivalry that severs a friendship, divides a city, and sparks a feud that will produce Shakespeare's famous star-crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet.

Based on the plays of William Shakespeare, The Master Of Verona is a sweeping novel of Renaissance Italy. Filled with swashbuckling adventure and unrequited love, this epic journey recalls the best of Bernard Cornwell, Sharon Kay Penman, and Dorothy Dunnett.


"A novel of intricate plot, taut narrative, sharp period detail and beautifully realized characters." - Publishers Weekly

"Intricate plotting, well-staged scenes, and colorful descriptions enhance head-spinning but lively entertainment." - Kirkus Reviews

"Be prepared to burn the midnight oil. It's well worth it." - Historical Novel Society

"David Blixt bursts onto the historical fiction scene with this masterful tale of adventure, love, and intrigue. This is high adventure at its best." - C.W. Gortner, author of The Last Queen
