The Lovereading4Kids comment
In the wild, decadent atmosphere of Venice Carnival, dark forces are at work. Philippa Gregory is well known for her historical fiction but has now turned her talents to teen fiction with a rich and dramatic adventure series set in Europe just after the fall of Byzantium. This is the third in the Order of Darkness series.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Fools' Gold a small number of members were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'What I liked best was the originality of the storyline...The brilliance of the characters shine out so well in the plans they make, be it sneaking into parties or breaking into the alchemist's house.' - Mukunth Kowsik

As the friends face the unknown dangers of magic and alchemy, the crimes and politics of the city may become the least of their worries. The powers they confront are not of this world ...
