Dark myths, medieval secrets, intrigue, and romance populate the pages of the first book in a new series from the author of The Other Boleyn Girl.
Cast out of his religious order for using science to question superstition, 17-year-old Luca is recruited into a secret sect: the Order of the Dragon, commissioned by Pope Nicholas V to seek out evil in its many forms.
When Luca is sent to investigate accusations of witchcraft against Isolde, a girl confined to a nunnery, he finds himself plotting her escape. Love grows between them as they travel across Europe, encountering werewolves, alchemists and witches in their search for a real-life historical figure who holds the secrets of the Order of the Dragon.
Philippa Gregory is one of the most successful historical novelists writing today, with bestsellers like The Virgin's Lover and The Other Boleyn Girl under her belt, and holds a PhD in 18th-century literature.
