Book Description

'Think Wolf Hall crossed with Downton Abbey set in the Italian Renaissance' - Red Magazine

Enslaved by the Medici, embroiled in the power games of Renaissance Italy, an orphan must beguile her way to freedom

ITALY, 1492.

5-year-old Mura is a strange and bewitching child. Daughter to a Nordic mother and Spanish father, she has been tutored in both Arabic learning and the ancient myth cycles of the north. But her widower father has been arrested by the Inquisition, and Mura is sold to a Genoese slaver.

In the port of Savona, Mura's androgynous looks and unusual abilities fetch a high price. She is bought as a house slave for the powerful Medici, arriving in Florence as the city prepares for war against the French. When the family are forced to flee, Mura finds herself gifted to the notorious Tigress of Forli, Countess Caterina Sforza.

Beautiful, ruthless and intelligent, the Countess is fascinated by Mura's arcane knowledge. As the Tigress educates her further in the arts of alchemy, potions and poisons, she becomes much more than a lady's maid. Mura becomes a potent weapon in the Machiavellian intrigues of the Renaissance court...

Product Description


A highly readable historical fantasy... Hilton is a vivid storyteller --Emma Hagestadt, Independent

In the same way that Madeline Miller's Song of Achilles was a pleasingly accessible idiot's guide to Greek mythology, this is something of a crash course in the Medici era. A richly detailed page-turner which fans of Philippa Gregory will love. --Viv Groskop, Red

Beautifully written, compelling, gripping and moving, Wolves in Winter will take you to another world you will never want to leave. A fantastic, unforgettable novel, passionate and full of drama and despair, this is historical fiction at its best. --Kate Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating story 13 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a change from Tudor-type historical novels, and this mystical story is it!
In the end, the more commonsense "magic" of women's knowledge overcomes all - and lets our heroine have her happy future. In between is a very interesting experience, as we follow Mura through her youthful experiences.
Worth a read - I'm looking forward to the upcoming next book from Lisa Hilton.

I enjoyed this book and would read it again.
It wasn't a long book and it was an easy read that kept me interested.
I would agree that it is different from the review I read in a magazine but I wasn't dissapointed.
I would recommend and have recommended this book.
