After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness’s enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew’s ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches—with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy’s final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.

Deborah Harkness is a professor of history at the University of Southern California. She has received Fullbright, Guggenheim, and National Humanities Center fellowships, and her most recent scholarly work is The Jewel House: Elizabethan London and the Scientific Revolution. She also writes an award-winning wine blog.

My review for A Discovery of Witches
My review for Shadow of Night


With the third season on the television, I knew I needed to get this Third book read before I sat to watch it.
Geez, the chapters are ginormous!! It such a slow-paced book that it felt like forever to read it. Although this story has more action and is more enjoyable than the previous two books, it still took forever to read!
As I said, the action surpasses my expectations here. The story is intense at times. The ending is beautiful and what I wanted and more! Like how does one root for a witch and a vampire to find some form of happiness, but I did.
Now there is only one book left, Time's Convert. I look forward to it, but trepidaciously. Will it be another chunkster? Probably. Do I think this story came together and I have no idea what the last will be about? Absolutely!

  1. I had never heard of this trilogy until I happen to find the TV-series 'A Discovery of Witches'. I started and I think I got through the three seasons and all in all 25 episodes in about 10 days. It was so good. I don't really think I will read the books after having seen the series. I prefer, like you, to read the books before watching the film or series. I can imagine the books are very well written, considering Deborah Harkness background. I am thinking to read Time's Convert though. As far as I know they have not made a series of that yet.

    1. Yeah, Time's Convert I am told has not much to do with the series itself. It's a future look, I guess. It is definitely not part of the tv show, which I agree is amazing. The books are great but the series moves at a faster pace. The books are endless at times.

  2. Maybe a good choice then to watch the series. I think I read somewhere that Time's Convert is about Matthew's son, Marcus Whitmore. Might be interesting as well.

    1. I'll end up reading it at some point, out of mere curiosity.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
