This is an excellent trilogy for teens. Historical fiction/fantasy that is as well written and interesting as this is hard to come by these days.

Winter term at Eagle Glen is about to start. Darrell just turned fourteen. She's home for the Christmas holidays. All of these things should give Darrell some amount of happiness, but she just can't seem to get there.
For starters, her mom has a new boyfriend that she brought over for Darrell's birthday dinner. This is supposed to be a dinner for Darrell, not that she necessarily wants the attention right now, but it's definitely not supposed to be about her mom and her new boyfriend. And thinking about Eagle Glen just brings back the horribly tragic mistake in time that happened at the end of last term. Darrell isn't sure she ever wants to play with time again. But, when a passageway appears in Eagle Glen's library, it seems like time has a different idea.
This time Darrell, Kate, Brodie, and (accidentally) their new friend, Paris, wind up in the midst of the Spanish Inquisition. Is it possible that the bloodiest time in history can help Darrell heal? Or will disaster strike again?
Another fabulously absorbing delivery from KC Dyer, and a great end to the EAGLE GLEN TRILOGY. I've come to know and love these characters so much, it feels like they're still out there, living, traveling, existing. This is the kind of story that grips you completely and holds on long after you've finished the books. Not to mention the fact that you may never look at history the same again.
