Millennium SF & F
"Roessner's sequel to her historical fantasy The Stars Dispose brilliantly recreates Renaissance Italy and brightly imagines the love of young Catherine de Medici.... Most satisfying of all of this hearty novel's mingled flavors is the sprezzatura, or easy grace of the loving master, with which Roessner concocts her luscious Italian settings, replete with recipes that even on the page breathe the seductive scents of Tuscany: Bellissima."
—Publishers Weekly, September 20, 1999
"The Stars Compel is a fine and brilliant work of historical fiction that brings life to Renaissance Rome."
—The Midwest Book Review, October 1999
Paperback: Tor Books, March 1998
Hardcover: Tor Books, April 1997
