In 1606, the grand city of Prague hides an ugly secret: the emperor's bastard son, Don Julius, is afflicted with a madness that pushes the prince to unspeakable depravity. Banished to a remote corner of Bohemia, Don Julius comes under the care of a bloodletter who works to purge the vicious humors coursing through the young royal's veins. When the prince meets the bloodletter's daughter Marketa, his madness sparks a frenzied - and dangerous - obsession. He believes Marketa embodies the women from the Coded Book of Wonder, a priceless manuscript from the imperial library that was the young prince's only link to sanity. As the prince descends further into the darkness of his mind, his acts become ever more desperate, and Marketa, both frightened and fascinated, can't stay away.

Inspired by a true murder that rocked the Hapsburg dynasty, The Bloodletter's Daughter is a dark and richly detailed saga of passion and revenge.

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The main characters are well developed, it is suspenseful, and narrative is easy to follow. I knew very little of the Hapsbergs in Bohemia before reading this novel. I would definitely recommend it to historical fiction lovers. "

    " I couldn't put this book down once I hit the halfway mark! I had to give it 5 stars because of that. I love this time period and it had been a long time since I've read something from it. This book had a great balance of emerging science, love, loyalty, darkness, and curiosity to keep me intrigued! This was a gift from my sister who knew I would love it! Thanks, Nette!! "
