    Though I think that it might have helped if I d read the first three instalments of the Order of Darkness series, this worked so well as a standalone Such an interesting premise, obviously based on historical facts So interesting and also a little scary to witness the mistreatment of Jews even back in the 1400s The ending was poignant and drew the novel to a close so well Powerful.

    This just was not good The series as a whole has really gone downhill The characters, far from developing, have regressed into fairly annoying caricatures of themselves The lack of plot in this is astounding It feels as if it was written in a single afternoon I understand the thinly veiled Holocaust references, but they weren t actually useful to the story, and they didn t bring anything profound enough to merit including such a heavy topic in the first place The most annoying question o This just was not good The series as a whole has really gone downhill The characters, far from developing, have regressed into fairly annoying caricatures of themselves The lack of plot in this is astounding It feels as if it was written in a single afternoon I understand the thinly veiled Holocaust references, but they weren t actually useful to the story, and they didn t bring anything profound enough to merit including such a heavy topic in the first place The most annoying question of the first three books was always regarding which characters would end up together This book really ruined that for me While I was originally rooting for the couple from the first three books, despite the weird almost love triangle thing going on, this book changed everything I truly hope they all end up alone The entire thing was ridiculous, from beginning to end I don t know if I ll continue with the series, but I m 100% sure I won t be waiting eagerly for the next release

    DISCLAIMER I was sent an early copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review and boy do I think they re going to regret that choice,but hey ho, authenticity I was not exactly a fan of the previous books in this series,so needless to say,my expectations for this one weren t exactly what you would call,well,high.However,I still ended up quite underwhelmed,which is quite the achievement.I literally could not care about any of the characters storylines for once and I though DISCLAIMER I was sent an early copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review and boy do I think they re going to regret that choice,but hey ho, authenticity I was not exactly a fan of the previous books in this series,so needless to say,my expectations for this one weren t exactly what you would call,well,high.However,I still ended up quite underwhelmed,which is quite the achievement.I literally could not care about any of the characters storylines for once and I thought the consistency of most of their characters lacked painfully.I also quite honestly thought that the actual plot of this served so little to the main plot of the series for a whole volume that I could ve done without,but what can you do.Luca remains the actual worst and I d rather read about a turtle as a protagonist than him.Doesn t even have to be a fun turtle.To be fair,much as I have to complain about these books,if I were to request the next volume from the library once it s out or somehow be offered a copy of it from the publisher,though that sounds a wee bit unrealistic after this review ,I would most definitely be tempted to pick it up because these books are soooooo easy to get through,I have pretty much read most of them in one seating they are rather addicting and a little bit like crack in book form

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here It s a good installment in the Order of Darkness series The characters chase down another sign of the end of days I like that Gregory weaves true history or historical events into her novels I didn t really like how she tied it tomodern history at the end I can see her wanting to pay tribute remember, but it was just too out of place I also don t like the love shift Come on, really

    A dissapointing fourth instalement in the order of darkness series Even though the books that preceeded this one weren t my favourite, they still held some merit and I enjoyed reading them However, with Dark Tracks the storyline was all over the place and there seemed to be very little resolution The limited character development that took place was frustrating and changed everything we had got used to in the previous books I don t think I ll be reading the next installment in the series whe A dissapointing fourth instalement in the order of darkness series Even though the books that preceeded this one weren t my favourite, they still held some merit and I enjoyed reading them However, with Dark Tracks the storyline was all over the place and there seemed to be very little resolution The limited character development that took place was frustrating and changed everything we had got used to in the previous books I don t think I ll be reading the next installment in the series when it is released because at this point, I just don t care

    I will also do a video review here at my channel Dark Tracks is book 4 in Philippa Gregory s Order of Darkness series Luca and his friends travel to a new town to continue their quest to learn about mysterious events that threaten Christendom and foretell the end of days This time they come across a village where many of the townspeople have become possessed by the dancing sickness Another great book in this series And when might the next book be rel I will also do a video review here at my channel Dark Tracks is book 4 in Philippa Gregory s Order of Darkness series Luca and his friends travel to a new town to continue their quest to learn about mysterious events that threaten Christendom and foretell the end of days This time they come across a village where many of the townspeople have become possessed by the dancing sickness Another great book in this series And when might the next book be released There s been a couple year gap between books 3 and 4 But Philippa Gregory is also working on a new series at the moment and I feel like Order of Darkness is just a fun series to her to relax with and release new books when she feels like it I don t imagine a new book being released anytime soon since she s currently writing another series.I really liked the premise of this book Luca and friends are investigating the dancing sickness Villagers are just running around, endlessly dancing Is there a cure Can they be saved What started this madness Our characters get a bit caught up in this as we see with Isolde and Freize who get caught in the madness Luca in the meantime goes to the local lord who rules over the village Luca is seeking the help and assistance of this lord, but the lord is cruel, thinking that the best solution is to kill the dancing villagers Isolde and Freize end up dancing to a Jewish community for refuge and this is where thedramatic aspects of the book take place Philippa Gregory s biggest theme with this book is the fear of the other We see that with the fear of the dancing villagers who are the other And we see it again with the Jewish community who are seen as the other There is prejudice and hatred of the other and what is different and not normal in the eyes of people who call themselves charitable Christians I appreciated what Gregory was doing with the story and how characters behaved with one another with the Jews, but it did get a bit on the nose by foreshadowing the Holocaust Isolde even has a dream or maybe even a vision of the Jews being transported on trains to concentration camps It reads a bit heavy handed almost and I don t think pushing the theme of the other had to go that far in that direction We know history often repeats itself and we could have just read that in the context of what was going on it didn t need to be forced in the characters dialogue, if that makes sense.Can I bring up again my frustrations with the love quadrangle between Luca Isolde Freize Ishraq It baffles me that mature adult author Philippa Gregory is creating this love quadrangle Does she feel the need to force one since this is considered a young adult novel and she thinks young readers want to see that The thing is, most young readers find love triangles or quadrangles, or whatever a nuisance and don t like them all that much Whenever theromantic aspects are brought up in this book they often read as cliche and cringey The characters make the stupidest mistakes and say the stupidest things These young characters are incredibly smart, intelligent people, considering the medieval world they live in But their romantic love lives our completely uninteresting I wouldn t mind the Luca Isolde pairing, and I actually like Ishraq Freize, but they are all confused and intermingle and it s kind of unnecessary I think The strongest parts of these books are the investigating of things that appear supernatural but have explanations and these characters learning and growing as a result It can be a bit messy at times when the romance is thrown in.Overall, book 4 was good I do enjoy the series in general I feel like there s things I m learning I think Philippa Gregory could be a bit tighter with her narrative Definitely looking forward to book 5 whenever that arrives, which like I said, could be years from now I m just anxious to get to Vlad the Impaler, you guys I think that s where this series is ultimately heading, but I think it s going to be a good long while until we get there

    I Have not been the biggest fan of this series, although I am a huge fan of the author However Ya Fantasy Historical fiction does not seem to be her forte It was much of the same as the other books in this series however there was no progression to an actual outcome of the whole situation It has drama and intrigue but it is seems to be somewhat diluted Maybe YA is just not my genre This book did keep mecaptivated than the other ones I have to say, the Dancing Curse was a little odd an I Have not been the biggest fan of this series, although I am a huge fan of the author However Ya Fantasy Historical fiction does not seem to be her forte It was much of the same as the other books in this series however there was no progression to an actual outcome of the whole situation It has drama and intrigue but it is seems to be somewhat diluted Maybe YA is just not my genre This book did keep mecaptivated than the other ones I have to say, the Dancing Curse was a little odd and out there and a few strange things happened along the way that kept my interest, however this was a case of Do I actually care to find out what happens to these people If I was not such a stickler for not leaving a book unfinished I don t think I would of bothered.I m just not feeling this series AT ALL

    I really love this series, though sometimes I m not sure how to categorize it It s a wonderful way of telling very old history, which unfortunately has a way of repeating itself I did not know this about how the Jews were treated in villages in the 1500 s, absolutely no idea.

    Boooo..this book brought the series down by giant steps I didn t enjoy the plot and actually I m not sure the plot made sense Gregory danced around what was the source of this plague but never did this mystery truly get solved Also, the relationships seemed completely altered in this book along with a horrifying twist of events in a love relationship that still doesn t flow well with me I m pretty sure my entire opinion of the characters and the storyline itself is forever altered in a Boooo..this book brought the series down by giant steps I didn t enjoy the plot and actually I m not sure the plot made sense Gregory danced around what was the source of this plague but never did this mystery truly get solved Also, the relationships seemed completely altered in this book along with a horrifying twist of events in a love relationship that still doesn t flow well with me I m pretty sure my entire opinion of the characters and the storyline itself is forever altered in a bad way by this twist and if there s a plot behind this change, fine, but I still don t like it.As much as I love Gregory s adult fiction books, this is one is terrible I only give it 2 stars vs 1 because I did finish it in hopes it would improve which it did not
