Antonella was the young daughter of his father's nemesis and unfortunately they signed a marriage deal between Enrico and Antonella in order to make peace. In order to become the strongest of the families. It really tells the story of Enrico becoming the man that he is supposed to be, and enacting revenge on Antonella's father. In amongst it all he does find love in Antonella despite having a family elsewhere.
I have the second part here and I am extremely curious to see where this goes. I loved the style, and the backdrop was described so beautifully that at times I just wanted to climb into those pages. Has a subtle darkness to it, I prefer my dark to be dark, but it in no way spoilt the story for me.
Who could forget 'The Godfather'? One of the best books/films ever and setting the standard for all things Mafia with its sweeping operatic tale of love, lust and revenge. I started reading Malavita hoping to get swept away in the drama but after the Godfather, which set such a high bar, I didn't. I tried but if a story becomes one that you don't want to read and just aren't engaged enough from the beginning, then best give it a miss. Its competently written and doesn't make the usual mistakes of nouns and pronouns but I just didn't find it interesting enough and didn't really care what happened to any of the characters.
Personally I would have liked to have seen more of Enrico's time with Veronica; Nico's Mother. It would have been nice to actually see how they were with each other, if they were truly in love etc. I felt sorry for him having to leave his son but had no emotion where Veronica was concerned because I didn't manage to connect with her or feel for her in any way. Meeting Enrico as a young man allowed me to see him as a more rounded character. My image of him in `Revenge' when Kate went to him for help was totally different to the one I have of him now and it has made me want to re-read the other books with this new, somehow tougher Enrico in my head.
I just love Dana's writing, the plot is very well thought out, fast paced and full of action, and as I've said before with her work, every word is relevant. The story has everything, romance, revenge, `blood', `honor', suspense, action, you name it this book covers it. Dana Delamar is definitely an author to watch.

The author used words to paint her story as brush strokes from an artist. Brava, signora.
