From the Publisher:
Dark myths, medieval secrets, intrigue, and romance populate the pages of the first-ever teen series from #1 bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl.

Italy, 1453. Seventeen-year-old Luca Vero is brilliant, gorgeous?and accused of heresy. Cast out of his religious order for using the new science to question old superstitious beliefs, Luca is recruited into a secret sect: The Order of the Dragon, commissioned by Pope Nicholas V to investigate evil and danger in its many forms, and strange occurrences across Europe, in this year?the end of days.

     Isolde is a seventeen-year-old girl shut up in a nunnery so she can't inherit any of her father's estate. As the nuns walk in their sleep and see strange visions, Isolde is accused of witchcraft?and Luca is sent to investigate her, but finds himself plotting her escape.

     Despite their vows, despite themselves, love grows between Luca and Isolde as they travel across Europe with their faithful companions, Freize and Ishraq. The four young people encounter werewolves, alchemists, witches, and death-dancers as they head toward a real-life historical figure who holds the boundaries of Christendom and the secrets of the Order of the Dragon.

     The first in a series, this epic and richly detailed drama is grounded in historical communities and their mythic beliefs. It includes a medieval map of Europe that will track their journey; and the interior will include relevant decorative elements as well as an interior line illustration. And look for a QR code that links to a note from the author with additional, detailed information about the setting and the history that informed the writing. With Philippa Gregory's trademark touch, this novel deftly brings the past?and its salacious scandals?vividly and disturbingly to life.Cast out of his mid-15th-century religious order when he is accused of heresy for using the new science to question superstitious beliefs, brilliant and handsome Luca De Vere is recruited by a secret papal sect to investigate strange occurrences throughout Europe, before falling in love with a young nun who has been wrongly accused of witchcraft.

Annotation:
Set in mid-15th-century Italy, bestselling author Phillippa Gregory's first young adult novel is steeped in religious controversy, romance, and the paranormal. Orphaned and living with monks for most of his childhood, 17-year-old Luca Vero is accused of being a changeling and banished. However, he taken in by a secret society run by Pope Nicholas V, and sent out to uncover the truth behind nefarious events and what they could mean. One of Luca's cases leads him to a nunnery where 17-year-old Isolde is suspected of witchcraft. The two find kindred spirits in one another, and along with their servants, Freize and Ishraq, they travel through Europe together exploring the nature of evil. This is the first book in the Order of Darkness series.
