    I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book through NetGalley and the moment I received the email saying I could review it, I was SUPER excited. I'd actually found this book by accident, idly perusing the historical fiction section on the NetGalley website - normally I stick to their...

    The city of Florence is in distress. Lorenzo de Medici , the city's great patron, is dead. His son is not as strong a leader, and a great threat rises among the people. Friar Girolamo Savonarola, a religious fanatic and a master manipulator of the masses, gains more and more power with...

    I received an advanced copy of this title via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. This is the third and final book in a very enjoyable series. It takes a passionate author to scour through piles of research to produce such a readable account of that work. The friar Savanarol...

    I was very fortunate and honored when the author asked me to pre-release read this stunning conclusion to a truly beautiful trilogy. Having read all three books now, it's clear Ms. Russo Morin put a great deal of effort into making each book a stand-alone, while at the same time creati...

    I enjoyed the writing style and the pacing. There were parts that moved very fast and then other parts that slowed down, just enough to let us catch our breaths. The setting was very clear and I liked that Donna Russo Morin was able to transport us to where the characters were expe...

    While much of what I read is historical fiction, it is rare to find characters so well developed, so relatable, and so intriguing as the women of Da Vinci's Disciples. Having now read the entire trilogy, I feel like these women have become my dearest friends. Russo Morin has created a ...

    The main thing that comes to mind when I think about how to explain this novel is that Donna Russo Morin delivers. The synopsis tells you what you are going to get and this isn?t just a bunch of fluff. This is full of historical aspects as well as characters who are genuine and wonde...

    First of all, that blurb completely drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised by the way Donna Russo Morin was able to keep me on my toes. I love reading thrillers and trying to figure out what could possibly come next. I'll have to admit, I was surprised in a couple of places through...

    What a remarkable conclusion to an outstanding trilogy. I cried...not once, but twice. This author sucks you into the worlds she creates so well, her characters become your friends and you read from the edge of your seat. FLAMES brings a perfect conclusion, with such daring and danger,...

    There is not a lack of imagination used by Donna Russo Morin in writing this story. I was blown away by the sheer detail used in bringing the reader into the story. The best part was how she managed to use historical details that shone through. I loved the pacing in this story. It fel...

    Thanks Diversion Books and netgalley for this ARC. The end of a saga that has a uplifting, take on the world, girl power message. Loved this series and looking forward to reading Morin's next one. ...

    It stands alone, but what a fantastic trilogy. These women are great. The writing is superb. ...

    I received a free copy of this title in exchange for my honest review. I didn't realize when I had requested this title that it was part of a series but I was intrigued by the idea of a secret group of women artists in Florence during the time of the Bonfire of the Vanities. The aut...

    I missed on Book I, liked Book II, couldn?t go through with Book III. As this book is a continuation of Book II, the author bridges the end of Book II with Book III with a very explanatory way. It is not an engaging read from the very beginning. As the author tries to set the ...

    I feel in love with these women--and this writer--from the first book. They and she became an all time favorite with the conclusion. Wonderful! ...

    Thank you Netgalley and Diversion Books for the ARC. This is the 3rd instalment of a trilogy. Florence, Italy, around 1500. The reign of the Medici is over, the church is in charge. A new friar declares himself The Prophet, send directly by God. In his vicious sermons he rants for...

    I missed on Book I, liked Book II, couldn?t go through with Book III. As this book is a continuation of Book II, the author bridges the end of Book II with Book III with a very explanatory way. It is not an engaging read from the very beginning. As the author tries to set the ...

    I feel in love with these women--and this writer--from the first book. They and she became an all time favorite with the conclusion. Wonderful! ...

    The city of Florence is in distress. Lorenzo de Medici , the city's great patron, is dead. His son is not as strong a leader, and a great threat rises among the people. Friar Girolamo Savonarola, a religious fanatic and a master manipulator of the masses, gains more and more power with...

    I was very fortunate and honored when the author asked me to pre-release read this stunning conclusion to a truly beautiful trilogy. Having read all three books now, it's clear Ms. Russo Morin put a great deal of effort into making each book a stand-alone, while at the same time creati...

    I enjoyed the writing style and the pacing. There were parts that moved very fast and then other parts that slowed down, just enough to let us catch our breaths. The setting was very clear and I liked that Donna Russo Morin was able to transport us to where the characters were expe...

    While much of what I read is historical fiction, it is rare to find characters so well developed, so relatable, and so intriguing as the women of Da Vinci's Disciples. Having now read the entire trilogy, I feel like these women have become my dearest friends. Russo Morin has created a ...

    First of all, that blurb completely drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised by the way Donna Russo Morin was able to keep me on my toes. I love reading thrillers and trying to figure out what could possibly come next. I'll have to admit, I was surprised in a couple of places through...

    What a remarkable conclusion to an outstanding trilogy. I cried...not once, but twice. This author sucks you into the worlds she creates so well, her characters become your friends and you read from the edge of your seat. FLAMES brings a perfect conclusion, with such daring and danger,...

    Thanks Diversion Books and netgalley for this ARC. The end of a saga that has a uplifting, take on the world, girl power message. Loved this series and looking forward to reading Morin's next one. ...

    It stands alone, but what a fantastic trilogy. These women are great. The writing is superb. ...

    I received a free copy of this title in exchange for my honest review. I didn't realize when I had requested this title that it was part of a series but I was intrigued by the idea of a secret group of women artists in Florence during the time of the Bonfire of the Vanities. The aut...

    Thank you Netgalley and Diversion Books for the ARC. This is the 3rd instalment of a trilogy. Florence, Italy, around 1500. The reign of the Medici is over, the church is in charge. A new friar declares himself The Prophet, send directly by God. In his vicious sermons he rants for...

    I missed on Book I, liked Book II, couldn?t go through with Book III. As this book is a continuation of Book II, the author bridges the end of Book II with Book III with a very explanatory way. It is not an engaging read from the very beginning. As the author tries to set the ...

    I feel in love with these women--and this writer--from the first book. They and she became an all time favorite with the conclusion. Wonderful! ...

    A truly brilliant conclusion to a fantastic trilogy. Loved it. ...

    I was lucky enough to receive an early copy of this novel. A fine ending to a fine series! My blurb: "In The Flames of Florence, Donna Russo Morin renders one of the most tumultuous and fascinating periods in Florence's history in bright colors and with vivid, rich descriptions. Thi...

    I love the Italian Renaissance. The history of Italy during this period, the magnificent art, the treacherous condottieri, the cruel princes, the prosperous city-states, the magnificent people that lived then ? I find it all fascinating. There are some famous historical figures that ...

    The Da Vinci disciples grow and are even beginning to welcome new, younger members, just as full of talent and passion for painting Renaissance works of art beloved by all, even those who disapprove of women painting. However, their unity and vision for the future is now about to come ...

    I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book through NetGalley and the moment I received the email saying I could review it, I was SUPER excited. I'd actually found this book by accident, idly perusing the historical fiction section on the NetGalley website - normally I stick to their...

    The city of Florence is in distress. Lorenzo de Medici , the city's great patron, is dead. His son is not as strong a leader, and a great threat rises among the people. Friar Girolamo Savonarola, a religious fanatic and a master manipulator of the masses, gains more and more power with...

    I received an advanced copy of this title via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. This is the third and final book in a very enjoyable series. It takes a passionate author to scour through piles of research to produce such a readable account of that work. The friar Savanarol...

    I was very fortunate and honored when the author asked me to pre-release read this stunning conclusion to a truly beautiful trilogy. Having read all three books now, it's clear Ms. Russo Morin put a great deal of effort into making each book a stand-alone, while at the same time creati...

    I enjoyed the writing style and the pacing. There were parts that moved very fast and then other parts that slowed down, just enough to let us catch our breaths. The setting was very clear and I liked that Donna Russo Morin was able to transport us to where the characters were expe...

    While much of what I read is historical fiction, it is rare to find characters so well developed, so relatable, and so intriguing as the women of Da Vinci's Disciples. Having now read the entire trilogy, I feel like these women have become my dearest friends. Russo Morin has created a ...

    The main thing that comes to mind when I think about how to explain this novel is that Donna Russo Morin delivers. The synopsis tells you what you are going to get and this isn?t just a bunch of fluff. This is full of historical aspects as well as characters who are genuine and wonde...

    First of all, that blurb completely drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised by the way Donna Russo Morin was able to keep me on my toes. I love reading thrillers and trying to figure out what could possibly come next. I'll have to admit, I was surprised in a couple of places through...

    What a remarkable conclusion to an outstanding trilogy. I cried...not once, but twice. This author sucks you into the worlds she creates so well, her characters become your friends and you read from the edge of your seat. FLAMES brings a perfect conclusion, with such daring and danger,...

    There is not a lack of imagination used by Donna Russo Morin in writing this story. I was blown away by the sheer detail used in bringing the reader into the story. The best part was how she managed to use historical details that shone through. I loved the pacing in this story. It fel...

    Thanks Diversion Books and netgalley for this ARC. The end of a saga that has a uplifting, take on the world, girl power message. Loved this series and looking forward to reading Morin's next one. ...

    It stands alone, but what a fantastic trilogy. These women are great. The writing is superb. ...

    I received a free copy of this title in exchange for my honest review. I didn't realize when I had requested this title that it was part of a series but I was intrigued by the idea of a secret group of women artists in Florence during the time of the Bonfire of the Vanities. The aut...

    Thank you Netgalley and Diversion Books for the ARC. This is the 3rd instalment of a trilogy. Florence, Italy, around 1500. The reign of the Medici is over, the church is in charge. A new friar declares himself The Prophet, send directly by God. In his vicious sermons he rants for...

    I missed on Book I, liked Book II, couldn?t go through with Book III. As this book is a continuation of Book II, the author bridges the end of Book II with Book III with a very explanatory way. It is not an engaging read from the very beginning. As the author tries to set the ...

    I feel in love with these women--and this writer--from the first book. They and she became an all time favorite with the conclusion. Wonderful! ...

    A truly brilliant conclusion to a fantastic trilogy. Loved it. ...
