We've Got History : Post & Giveaway



Today I'm lucky enough to be participating in the We've Got History blog tour, celebrating the paperback release of Philippa Greogry's Order of Darkness: Changeling. I can't tell you how excited I am to read this book! Look for a review next week.

In the meantime, I've been asked to answer the question...

If you could go back in time, 
which era would you choose?

Without a doubt, I'd travel back to early 19th Century England. Pride and Prejudice is forever one of my favorite books, and I'd love to opportunity to actually live it!

The clothes, the food, the homes, everything was so decadent. I think doorways like the one to the left are one of my favorite details about this time period. Oooh, and perhaps I would meet my very own Mr. Darcy. Hey, a girl can dream right?



Order of Darkness: Changeling by Philippa Gregory


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.
