The second book in a YA quartet filled with intrigue, mystery, and romance, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory.
The year is 1453, and the end of the world is closer than ever.
As Luca and Isolde continue their journey, their attraction grows with each passing day. Even as they try to remain focused on the mysteries they’ve been ordered to investigate, the tension between them builds.
Their budding, illicit relationship is put on hold when a boy, Johann, and his army of children arrive in town. Johann claims to have divine orders to lead the children across Europe to the Holy Land, and the townspeople readily accept his claims. Luca wants to believe, but his training tells him to question everything...but when Johann’s prophecy begins to come true, Luca wonders if they have finally stumbled upon a real miracle.
Yet even the greatest miracles have the potential for darkness…and the chaos that follows Johann is unlike anything anyone could have imagined.

Couldn't Hang in there
I loved the first book, the narrator in that one took getting used to but he made it interesting. I am REALLY disappointed that the narrator changed.
Not chosen this narrator
I stopped listening 2 chapters in because i felt like the narrator was talking down to me. I agree with another reviewer - it felt like a children's book narration. I began to enjoy the series - as i have many of Philippa Gregory's - but couldn't go on listening sadly.

Boring and repeticious
I loved the first book, but this one was boring with the repetitions over and over again about what the characters feel or think! I had to drop it after the first few chapters! The male narrator in the first book was wonderful, giving each character a different voice and accent, this Nicola Barber sounded the same all the way!
I would have liked her to keep the first narrator. Also, the first book kept me intrigued every minute of it, she should have kept that same pace. This book sounded like a children's book
Tiresome insistance on explaining what the characters are thinking or feeling
First time I am disappointed by P.G., and I have read many, many books of hers!
