Praise
"Harkness delights in lining up the living dead and modern academic history, as in her explanation of how a forger named Shakespeare, with supernatural prompting, takes up playwriting."
"The joy that Harkness, herself a historian, takes in visiting the past is evident on every page."
"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 [the characters do]."
"[A] fascinating . . . entertainment displaying Harkness' formidable historical knowledge and Renaissance talents."
