ORDER OF DARKNESS: CHANGELING
By Philippa Gregory
(Released January 1, 2013)

 

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.

I do like the first cover better mainly because it has more color. Although, this cover is simply and beautiful. I kind of like both of them alot!

I love how the light green font stands out against the white cover. Simple but powerful.

I really like the other cover with people on it. This cover is simple and plain, though that's not necessarily a bad thing - this one just doesn't catch my eye as much as the other one.

I like it, actually prefer this than the HC cover. It's simple but still striking.

I liked the other cover better because it was more colorful, but this one is good too. I've been excited about this since I first heard about it. Fingers crossed.

I think this new cover is gorgeous! I've wanted to read this book for so long. I've been such a huge fan of Philippa Gregory since The Other Boleyn Girl.
