After working closely with Philippa Gregory over the last few years to develop and support her main website, www.philippagregory.com, we were delighted to be commisioned to design and develop the website for new Young Adult sequence of novels, Order of Darkness.
Focusing initially on the UK and US launch of Changling, the first book in the thrilling Order of Darkness sequence, the website features visual and media rich content including character guides, extracts from the book, video interviews, resources, journey maps and latest tweets from the community of followers already gathering to discuss and review the first book.
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 seventeen-year-old, Luca Vero, is recruited by a mysterious stranger to record the end of times across Europe. Commanded by sealed orders, Luca is sent to map the fears of Christendom, and travel to the very frontier of good and evil.
Seventeen-year-old Isolde, a Lady Abbess, is trapped in a nunnery to prevent her claiming her rich inheritance. As the nuns in her care are driven mad by strange visions, walking in their sleep, and showing bleeding wounds, Luca is sent to investigate and all the evidence points to Isolde’s criminal guilt. Outside in the yard they are building a pyre to burn her for witchcraft. Forced to face the greatest fears of the medieval world – dark magic, werewolves, madness – Luca and Isolde embark on a search for truth, their own destinies, and even love as they take the unknown ways to the real historical figure who defends the boundaries of Christendom and holds the secrets of the Order of Darkness. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
