Order of Darkness: Changeling by Philippa Gregory and Giveaway

Historical fiction is such a fun genre to read. Authors take a real time/place in history and use it to create a fantastical story that could really have happened in that time and place.

Philippa Gregory is one such author. She is a widely known name in the historical fiction genre, and has come out with her first historical fiction series in YA: Order of Darkness. The first book in this series, Changeling, is being released in paperback, and to help celebrate we are having a giveaway. One winner will receive a copy of Order of Darkness: Changeling, and a Victorian Rose Glass Pen Set. So make sure to fill out the form at the end of this post for your chance to win.

Order of Darkness: Changeling
by Philippa Gregory
Published by Simon Pulse
Paperback: 352 pages

About the book
Dark myths, medieval secrets, intrigue, and romance populate the pages of this first in a four-book teen series from the #1 bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl.

The year is 1453 and all signs point to it being the end of the world. Accused of heresy and expelled from his monastery, handsome seventeen-year-old Luca Vero is recruited by a mysterious stranger to record the end of times across Europe. Commanded by sealed orders, Luca is sent to map the fears of Christendom and travel to the very frontier of good and evil.
Seventeen-year-old Isolde, a Lady Abbess, is trapped in a nunnery to prevent her from claiming her rich inheritance. As the nuns in her care are driven mad by strange visions, walking in their sleep, and showing bleeding wounds, Luca is sent to investigate and driven to accuse her.
Forced to face the greatest fears of the dark ages—witchcraft, werewolves, madness—Luca and Isolde embark on a search for truth, their own destinies, and even love as they take the unknown ways to the real historical figure who defends the boundaries of Christendom and holds the secrets of the Order of Darkness.
