Product description

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 young monk Luca Vero is recruited by a mysterious stranger to record the end of times across Europe. His task is to travel to the very frontiers of good and evil, mapping the fears of Christendom. Meanwhile, Isolde has been trapped in a nunnery to divide her from her rich inheritance. As the other nuns are driven mad by strange visions, nightmares and bleeding wounds, Luca is sent to investigate. All the evidence points to Isolde’s guilt. A pyre is being built to burn her for witchcraft. But together, Luca and Isolde embark on an epic search for truth, love and destiny. Forced to face the greatest terrors of the Dark Ages – black magic, werewolves, madness – they find themselves facing the real historical figure who defends the boundaries of Christendom and holds the secrets of the Order of Darkness…

The first book in Philippa Gregory’s major new series – a thrilling tale of religion, superstition and black magic.
