Picking up from Harkness'' "A Discovery of Witches" cliffhanger ending, this tale plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh.
From the Publisher:

"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.

Annotation:
Searching for a teacher who can initiate her in the ways of witchcraft, Diana Bishop travels to Victorian England with her lover, the dashing scientist and vampire, Matthew Clairmont. As Diana works to learn about her magical powers, Matthew must confront his actual past. Meanwhile, the hunt for the ancient mystical manuscript known as Ashmole 782 continues.

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." 05/21/2012

"The joy that Harkness, herself a historian, takes in visiting the past is evident on every page." - Karen Valby 07/06/2012

"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]." - Carol Memmott 07/10/2012

"[A] fascinating . . . entertainment displaying Harkness' formidable historical knowledge and Renaissance talents." - Paula Woods 07/29/2012
