I am a huge fan of Philippa Gregory and have really enjoyed The Order of Darkness series so far.
Fools’ Gold is the third in The Order of Darkness series for young adults. Luca Vero is on a mission from the Pope and along with the Lady Isolde, Freize, Brother Peter and Ishraq and they must travel to Venice. Things are becoming far more dangerous for Isolde who is still trying to escape her brother and her feelings towards Luca start to feel very intense. In Venice, they find themselves facing what seems like the most dangerous situation yet involving alchemy and seemingly other worldly influences.
This book is so evocative and I could picture all of the sights and sounds of fifteenth century Venice. I loved the descriptions of Carnevale and all of the mystery which surrounds this magical city.
I love this fantastic series and eagerly await the next instalment.
Thank you to Simon and Schuster for sending us a copy to review.
