Teen reviewer: Abigail Borne

Changeling, Order of Darkness series, by Philippa Gregory
Teen Reviewer: Zeke Pedrino
I think that Changeling: The Order of Darkness Book One is a fantastic book. I think this book is fantastic because it is fast paced and has action, which I am fond of. It also has a lot of religious based ways, most are catholic, which is surprising and allows me to learn about other religions.
