The Colour Storm
Enter the world of Renaissance Venice, where the competition for fame and fortune can mean life or death, in this immersive novel of art and the Inquisition.
Artists flock to Renaissance Venice for wealth, fame and revolutionary colour. Yet for Giorgione 'Zorzo' Barbarelli, competition is fierce and debts are mounting. Then Zorzo hears of a brand new pigment, owned by merchant Jakob Fugger, which could change his fate.
To get closer to Fugger, Zorzo befriends his wife, Sybille. Soon, he's lost - enchanted by her - but acting on his feelings would put him in huge danger.
As water levels rise and the plague creeps closer, Zorzo isn't sure whom he can trust. Will Sybille be the key to Zorzo's success, or the reason for his downfall?
