This is the first time I've read a book from Dana Delamar, so I wasn't sure what exactly I was getting myself into. Even before I started reading there was a page with translations from Italian to English, which I found good (I couldn't remember half of the meanings from High School) & I found it got my mind set on the conversations to come. I must say that I was impressed with the detailed descriptions of the country side, houses, people & food through out the book, it made me feel like I was walking around Italy with the characters. The detail of the Mafiso codes & there involvement with the people & other Mafiso fanctions was visually fantastic. Some of the scenes where a bit tense & as a female I found them disturbing, but the scenes contributed to the storyline.
There are so many twists & turns in this compelling novel. Dana weaves us such a magical story full of love, lies, deception, passion, emotions, action.... Bring on the rest of the series & any others you've got published, reader for LIFE!
