Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times–bestselling sequel to A Discovery of Witches is as “enchanting, engrossing, and as impossible to put down as its predecessor” (Miami Herald)
J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice—only a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has done with books one and two of her New York Times–bestselling All Souls trilogy. A Discovery of Witches introduced reluctant witch Diana Bishop, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and the battle for a lost, enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782.
            Harkness’s much-anticipated sequel, Shadow of Night, picks up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending. Diana and Matthew time-travel to Elizabethan London and are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the School of Night. As the search for Ashmole 782 deepens and Diana searches for a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them, and they embark on a very different—and vastly more dangerous—journey.

Shadow of the Night

Loved the characters and story . Totally disliked the ending as there were too many unanswered elements. Would not mind this so much if the third book didn't take so long to become available .publishers get it togeather !

Shadow of Night

I have so enjoyed spending time with Matthew and Diana once again. It will seem like forever before their journey continues.

A loss for words & a waste of time

Earlier this year I read "A Book of Witches". I love reading anything about witches, mysticism and magic. I was sorely disappointed with the first book & when I discovered it had a sequel I was even more upset! I enjoyed the general storyline & that's the only thing that kept me reading. I picked up the second book hoping to complete the story & hoping for a more enjoyable experience. It wasn't. There were moments I enjoyed but I found the characters lacking in depth, characters were haphazardly introduced, there was stupid banter that didn't drive the story forward & I found myself hurriedly reading just to finish. I don't recommend spending the time it takes to read this. Harkness filled the book with historical quotes, characters & events and name dropped & added bits of information for no purpose that I could see. This story has great potential but this will be my last Harkness read. Both books were anticlimactic & I'm just relieved its over & I can go find something better to read.
