Inhaltsangabe:

Winter, 1564. Beautiful young Princess Margot is summoned to the court of France, where nothing is what it seems and a wrong word can lead to ruin. Known across Europe as Madame la Serpente, Margot's intimidating mother, Queen Catherine de Medicis, is a powerful force in a country devastated by religious war. Among the crafty nobility of the royal court, Margot learns the intriguing and unspoken rules she must live by to please her poisonous family.

Eager to be an obedient daughter, Margot accepts her role as a marriage pawn, even as she is charmed by the powerful, charismatic Duc de Guise. Though Margot's heart belongs to Guise, her hand will be offered to Henri of Navarre, a Huguenot leader and a notorious heretic looking to seal a tenuous truce. But the promised peace is a mirage: her mother's schemes are endless, and her brothers plot vengeance in the streets of Paris. When Margot's wedding devolves into the bloodshed of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, she will be forced to choose between her family and her soul.

Medicis Daughter is historical fiction at its finest, weaving a unique coming-of-age story and a forbidden love with one of the most dramatic and violent events in French history.

Rezension: "Praise for Sophie Perinot's "The Sister Queens

What Philippa Gregory did for Anne and Mary Boleyn, Perinot has done for Marguerite and Eleanor of Provence. This is, without a doubt, one of the best novels I've read all year!--Michelle Moran, national bestselling author of The Second Empress, on The Sister Queens

Sibling rivalry with the highest possible stakes! Sophie Perinot awards two luminaries of medieval royalty their due in a densely woven tapestry of colorful detail.--Leslie Carroll, author of Notorious Royal Marriages and Royal Pains, on The Sister Queens

A riveting page-turner skillfully blending illicit liaisons and political chicanery." "Kirkus Reviews"

This is Renaissance France meets "Game of Thrones" dark, sumptuous historical fiction that coils religious strife, court intrigue, passionate love, family hatred, and betrayed innocence like a nest of poisonous snakes.

A highly recommended coming-of-age tale where the princess learns to slay her own dragons! "Kate Quinn, national bestselling author of The Lion and the Rose"

"Michelle Moran, bestselling author of The Rebel Queen"

Rising above the chorus of historical drama is Perinot's epic tale of the fascinating, lascivious, ruthless House of Valois, as told through the eyes of the complicated and intelligent Princess Marguerite.

Amid wars of nation and heart, "Medicis Daughter" brilliantly demonstrates how one unique woman beats staggering odds to find the strength and power that is her birthright.
