Venom by Fiona Paul Posted on August 13, 2015 by lynndellwatson Fiona Paul weaves a wonderful mystery in her historical fiction novel, Venom! I love that it is set in Venice and how complex the characters are. I enjoyed the story so much, with all of the twists and turns, that I didn’t want it to end. The ending was perfect and I was surprised to see that there is a sequel, Belladonna. I plan on reading this entire series as soon as I can get my hands on all of it! I also want to mention how aesthetically pleasing the hard copy of Venom is. The cover is gorgeous and each page has intricate designs on its inner edge. I also like the rough edge of each page. A wonderfully delightful book in every way!
