Shadow of Night

A Novel

All Souls Trilogy 2

"Together we lifted our feet and stepped into the unknown"-the thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestseller A Discovery of Witches

Deborah Harkness exploded onto the literary scene with her debut novel, A Discovery of Witches, Book One of the magical All Souls Trilogy and an international publishing phenomenon. The novel introduced Diana Bishop, Oxford scholar and reluctant witch, and the handsome geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont; together they found themselves at the center of a supernatural battle over an enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782.

Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens.

Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries, delivering one of the most hotly anticipated novels of the season.

Zitat
Praise for "Shadow of Night" "A captivating and romantic ripping yarn."
--E. L. James, "Books of the Year 2012: Authors Choose Their Favourites," "The Guardian" "The joy that Harkness, herself a historian, takes in visiting the past is evident on every page. . . . A great spell, the one that can enchant a reader and make a 600-page book fly through her fingertips, is cast. . . . Its enduring rewards are plenty."
--"Entertainment Weekly" "Fans of Harkness's 2011 debut "A Discovery of Witches "will be delighted. . . . Harkness delivers enough romance and excitement to keep the pages turning. Readers will devour it."
--"People" "Deborah Harkness takes us places we've never been before. . . . "Shadow of Night "isn't just about wonderfully detailed descriptions of England in 1591, it's about being there. Readers time-travel as precisely and precariously as Diana and Matthew do. . . . "Shadow" ends as "Discovery" did with promises of more to come. Lucky for us."
--"USA Today" "Harkness exudes her own style of magic in making the world of late 16th century England come alive. . . . Enchanting, engrossing and as impossible to put down as its predecessor, "Shadow of Night" is a perfect blend of fantasy, history and romance. Its single greatest flaw is, after almost 600 pages, it's over. If you've already read and enjoyed "A Discovery of Witches," picking up "Shadow of Night "is an absolute requirement. Otherwise, pick up both, and consider your reading list complete."
"--Miami Herald" "Picking up where she left off in last year's "A Discovery of Witches," Harkness proves she's not suffering from a sophomore slump with this addictive tale of magic, mayhem and two lovers." --"Chicago Tribune" "Rich, period fun, particularly delightful in its witty characterization of historical immortals . . . "Shadow" ramps up the supernatural suspense."
"--New York Daily News" "This novel is as much aw
