The book would be good for those interested in art, the Renaissance, or inventions, in general. The book presents some interesting facts, but along the line of action, is very minimal. The backstory is somewhat interesting and unpredictable the the main plot is practically the exact opposite.

An overlong teen read featuring Leonardo da Vinci and his servant, Giacomo. Some interesting facts about the painting, The last supper, but the plot line featuring the servant, who was the main character of the book, failed to capture my interest.
