Jeanne Kalogridis

praise for The Devil's Queen

"Kalogridis puts a human face on one of the most reviled women in history. . . . Interwoven into her life story and lending this fictional biography an almost mystical bent is her symbiotic relationship with Cosimio Ruggieri, a mysterious medieval psychic who plays an ever-expanding role in Catherineís fortunes."
Booklist on The Devilís Queen

"Kalogridis spins a dramatic tale from a heady mix of royal power plays and passion."
Publishers Weekly

"Seasoned historic novelist Kalogridis nails the palace intrigue and lush pageantry of the Renaissance."
Publishers Weekly

"...with this well-researched and highly readable novel, Kalogridis (The Borgia Bride)†treats Catherine with far more sympathy than most novels."
