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."
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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.
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.
