Book News: All the details on 'Changeling' the first YA novel from Philippa Gregory!

Changeling, the first in a four book series entitled Order of Darkness signals Philippa Gregory's highly anticipated entrance into the Young Adult market. Changeling will be released simultaneously  in the US and UK in May 2012. I've always been a fan of Gregory's historical fiction, and I can't wait to see what she brings to the YA market. There's a wealth of great YA historical fiction out there already, but Gregory's addition to the fold can only make things better!

The  Changeling cover art and excerpt  were exclusively revealed on USA Today a couple days back, but if you missed that announcement, you can check it out here now. Let me know what you think!





Changeling is set in 1453; 17-year-old Luca Vero has been expelled from his monastery and recruited by a stranger to record the end of times across Europe. On his journey, he meets 17-year-old Isolde, a lady abbess who has been trapped in a nunnery to prevent her claiming her rich inheritance.

  3. I love that cover! So eye-catching, I especially love the burning torch and the castle in the background. Looking forward to this one - I'm not usually a huge fan of historical fiction, but I've been getting into it more lately!

  4. I haven't read a Gregory novel before but of course I've wanted to. I love historical fiction books so I know I will be reading this book! And I had no idea there was an excerpt. *reads now*

    I also think it's crazy that this is coming out in a couple of months and I just heard about it yesterday...uh, maybe I haven't been paying good enough attention or something.

  6.  I knew she had a YA coming out, but the title & cover have been kept under wraps until just a few days ago, so I think that's why its been flying under the radar! :)

  7. Oh, I'm going to have to bookmark this for later so I can check out the excerpt. I've read some of Gregory's adult fiction and enjoyed it, so I'm curious to see how she'll do making the crossover to YA lit!
