    **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 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 th...

    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. ...

    Despite Gregory's style, which I often find stilted, I am enjoying this series that I initially picked up for a song in the works. A valid examination of prejudice and fear of that which seems "other". The characters are bold and I enjoy Isolde and Ishraq's no nonsense attitudes and am...

    I won this on the giveaway. I haven't read any of the other books in the series, so I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Not the most exciting of books, but the plot certainly had plenty going for it and kept my attention, which really is impressive. I thoroughly e...

    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 to more modern history at the end. I can see her wa...

    A fan of Philippa Gregory's historical novels. I have to admit that, as a more mature reader, though at first dubious about her branching out into the Young Adult market, I'm really rather enjoying her Order Of Darkness books ... albeit to varying degrees. Not so enamoured of books ...

    I like this series overall but it's really seeming to go down hill a bit. It was fun to read and everything but it got confusing. The writing was often blunt and the symbolism was very in your face. This book was interesting from a historical point of view and carried some very importa...

    This book is not as good as the previous books I have read from Philippa Gregory. The series is interesting but the quality of each books drops as it advances. ...

    To start, I?d like to say this book only managed to accumulate two stars as i had been previously waiting for this book for the best part of four years and by giving it two stars, perhaps it?ll reassure me my wait was not in vain. The book in itself was very thin and quite linear...

    Dark Tracks (Order of Darkness, #4) by Philippa Gregory, 307 pages. Simon Pulse, 2018. $20. Language: G; Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13. BUYING ADVISORY: HS - OPTIONAL AUDIENCE APPEAL: AVERAGE Luca and his friends go about Europe trying to explain odd happening...

    This is the fourth story in Philippa Gregory's Order of Darkness young adult series. The story follows Luca, an inquisitor for the Lord of the Order of Darkness in 1461, along with his band of friends, Brother Peter, Frieze, Isolde, and Ishraq. The men are sent out to investigate why 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 alter...

    In Dark tracks, Volume 4,near Linz in Austria 1461, the four travellers, Freize, Brother Peter, Isode and Ishraq are to help inquire about the dancing madness, plus the chosen inquirer himself, Luca a changeling. Initially all the travellers are safe till a pedlar comes to the very ...

    When I first started this series, one of the things that I liked best was that there was a scientific explanation for the wonders and signs of the end of days that Luca was inquiring about. I feel like the 3rd book, and now this one, departed from that. There was no explanation about w...

    I adored how the characters are unfolding like petals of a rose and becoming themselves, expanding and evolving as their adventures progress. Another excellent and fascinating read from Gregory. The story unfolds shortly after Fool?s Gold and leads us on a tale of dancing, wonder, ...

    I really wasn't in the reading mood at all this month, but suddenly read almost the entire book today. I really enjoyed this book, at times I thought that it was hard to keep up with and I couldn't fully understand the situations or scenes because the descriptions didn't really make se...

    I finished this part of the novel in just about two days. Although i had read the first three parts last year, i found it easy to follow the plot and the character. It's a lovely novel, just like the rest of Philippa's books, definitely it was a page turner for me. ...

    I have liked the other books in this series, but this one was slow and repetitive. Also the relationships between the characters were weird and the explanation for the dancers seems glanced over. ...

    This book is not as good as the previous books I have read from Philippa Gregory. The series is interesting but the quality of each books drops as it advances. ...

    To start, I?d like to say this book only managed to accumulate two stars as i had been previously waiting for this book for the best part of four years and by giving it two stars, perhaps it?ll reassure me my wait was not in vain. The book in itself was very thin and quite linear...

    This is the fourth story in Philippa Gregory's Order of Darkness young adult series. The story follows Luca, an inquisitor for the Lord of the Order of Darkness in 1461, along with his band of friends, Brother Peter, Frieze, Isolde, and Ishraq. The men are sent out to investigate why 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 alter...

    In Dark tracks, Volume 4,near Linz in Austria 1461, the four travellers, Freize, Brother Peter, Isode and Ishraq are to help inquire about the dancing madness, plus the chosen inquirer himself, Luca a changeling. Initially all the travellers are safe till a pedlar comes to the very ...

    When I first started this series, one of the things that I liked best was that there was a scientific explanation for the wonders and signs of the end of days that Luca was inquiring about. I feel like the 3rd book, and now this one, departed from that. There was no explanation about w...

    I finished this part of the novel in just about two days. Although i had read the first three parts last year, i found it easy to follow the plot and the character. It's a lovely novel, just like the rest of Philippa's books, definitely it was a page turner for me. ...

    This is the fourth story in Philippa Gregory's Order of Darkness young adult series. The story follows Luca, an inquisitor for the Lord of the Order of Darkness in 1461, along with his band of friends, Brother Peter, Frieze, Isolde, and Ishraq. The men are sent out to investigate why 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 alter...

    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. ...

    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 to more modern history at the end. I can see her wa...

    When I first started this series, one of the things that I liked best was that there was a scientific explanation for the wonders and signs of the end of days that Luca was inquiring about. I feel like the 3rd book, and now this one, departed from that. There was no explanation about w...

    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 th...

    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. ...

    Despite Gregory's style, which I often find stilted, I am enjoying this series that I initially picked up for a song in the works. A valid examination of prejudice and fear of that which seems "other". The characters are bold and I enjoy Isolde and Ishraq's no nonsense attitudes and am...

    I won this on the giveaway. I haven't read any of the other books in the series, so I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Not the most exciting of books, but the plot certainly had plenty going for it and kept my attention, which really is impressive. I thoroughly e...

    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 to more modern history at the end. I can see her wa...

    3.5/5 Stars 19/03/18 Overview: The Dark Tracks is the fourth book in the Order of Darkness series. In this series we follow our main character, Luca Vero who is considered a ?changeling?, and as a result he is recruited by the Pope into the Order of Darkness, where he will...

    A fan of Philippa Gregory's historical novels. I have to admit that, as a more mature reader, though at first dubious about her branching out into the Young Adult market, I'm really rather enjoying her Order Of Darkness books ... albeit to varying degrees. Not so enamoured of books ...

    I like this series overall but it's really seeming to go down hill a bit. It was fun to read and everything but it got confusing. The writing was often blunt and the symbolism was very in your face. This book was interesting from a historical point of view and carried some very importa...

    This book is not as good as the previous books I have read from Philippa Gregory. The series is interesting but the quality of each books drops as it advances. ...

    To start, I?d like to say this book only managed to accumulate two stars as i had been previously waiting for this book for the best part of four years and by giving it two stars, perhaps it?ll reassure me my wait was not in vain. The book in itself was very thin and quite linear...

    Dark Tracks (Order of Darkness, #4) by Philippa Gregory, 307 pages. Simon Pulse, 2018. $20. Language: G; Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13. BUYING ADVISORY: HS - OPTIONAL AUDIENCE APPEAL: AVERAGE Luca and his friends go about Europe trying to explain odd happening...

    This is the fourth story in Philippa Gregory's Order of Darkness young adult series. The story follows Luca, an inquisitor for the Lord of the Order of Darkness in 1461, along with his band of friends, Brother Peter, Frieze, Isolde, and Ishraq. The men are sent out to investigate why 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 alter...

    In Dark tracks, Volume 4,near Linz in Austria 1461, the four travellers, Freize, Brother Peter, Isode and Ishraq are to help inquire about the dancing madness, plus the chosen inquirer himself, Luca a changeling. Initially all the travellers are safe till a pedlar comes to the very ...

    When I first started this series, one of the things that I liked best was that there was a scientific explanation for the wonders and signs of the end of days that Luca was inquiring about. I feel like the 3rd book, and now this one, departed from that. There was no explanation about w...

    I adored how the characters are unfolding like petals of a rose and becoming themselves, expanding and evolving as their adventures progress. Another excellent and fascinating read from Gregory. The story unfolds shortly after Fool?s Gold and leads us on a tale of dancing, wonder, ...

    I really wasn't in the reading mood at all this month, but suddenly read almost the entire book today. I really enjoyed this book, at times I thought that it was hard to keep up with and I couldn't fully understand the situations or scenes because the descriptions didn't really make se...
