The #1 New York Times-bestselling sequel to A Discovery of Witches, book two of the All Souls Series. Look for the hit TV series “A Discovery of Witches,” streaming on AMC Plus, Sundance Now and Shudder. Season 2 premieres January 9, 2021!
Picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night takes reluctant witch Diana Bishop and vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont on a trip through time to Elizabethan London, where they 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--the lost and enchanted manuscript whose mystery first pulled Diana and Matthew into one another's orbit--deepens and Diana seeks out a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew's past tightens around them. Together they find they must embark on a very different - and vastly more dangerous - journey.
"A captivating and romantic ripping yarn,"** Shadow of Night confirms Deborah Harkness as a master storyteller, able to cast an "addictive tale of magic, mayhem and two lovers."**

The narrator is amazing, she gave so much life to this book. Thank you Deborah Harkness. I want more!
Book 2 is just as brilliantly written as with the 1st book. Jennifer Ikeda is a fantastic narrator that brings the book to live with her voice and reading style. Shadow of Night is such a delight to read as it was written with adults in mind with a great grasp and understanding of history and the complexities of Elizabethan England but its still keeps its fantasy/fiction roots. This book is such a breath of fresh air in a genre that mostly caters to teenage girls. Well done to Deborah Harkness!!!
AN AMAZING JOURNEY / Incredible Narrator !
Brava Deborah Harkness! A year ago I found "A Discovery of Witches " was an unexpected surprise; the anticipation of "Shadow of the Night" generated high expectations; Ms Harkness has truly exceed any expectations by delivering her readers into a world of adventure, romance, magic and history. A combination that is rarely successful, until a historian and author does it.
Ms. Harkness pulls her readers into a magical past, tours historic europe, Fact, fiction and fantasy blended with amazingly detailed characters with depth and truth. Shadow of the night full draws the reader in with every page and leaves readers wanting more! I would assume we are looking at the next big Hollywood franchise. Let's keep our fingers crossed ! It would be nice to see a big screen adaption that doesn't revolve around a 16 year old girl !
