Publisher's Summary

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

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

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.

What could Philippa Gregory have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not chosen this narrator

How could the performance have been better?

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.
