The Inquisitor's Tale: or The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog by Adam Gidwitz is for fans of historical fiction stories. It is set in medieval times and holds very true to the religious and mythical tales that we learn about from that time period. Students will enjoy this quest story because it involves interesting characters with magical abilities. It is one of the Newbery Honor books of 2017. To be honest, I might suggest to start reading this book at the back. There you will find a section by the author that explains his research, the historical nature and setting of the book. It might help you to decide if the book is for you.
