A novel of high drama and lyricism and the first volume of a trilogy about the life of one of the most important women in history. Diabolical reputation on one side -- a woman who seized power through sexual seduction, murder, and endless intrigue; her reality telling the story of a woman who survived in a male world, a woman whose main struggle was not to hold on to power but to her own humanity.
