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.


  • Not nearly as good as DoW

    This book starts slow and then bores you to death. Halfway through the book it improves a little, but the end is where all the action is. Tons of boring conversations between and about Elizabethan philosophers and playwrights. A lot of sitting around and waiting. I loved the first books so much I pushed through so I could get to the third.

    Like many here was absolutely captivated by the first book. Couldn't put it down. Second book and all of my favorite characters were gone and replaced by historical figures of the 16th century. ?? What? Was the author a history major in college and just never was able to do anything with it? She should really spend more time listening to her fans/readers. Yea of course I'll buy book 3 but just because I need to get the taste out of my mouth and figure out what happens to the characters. Sure hope she brings it all back.

  • Fantastic!

    A book that makes you compromise with yourself over the consequences of no sleep is always a book worth buying!
  • Boring.

    I loved the first book. This one took me a year to finish. That's how much it kept my interest. I'll be reading the last book though just to finish the series.

    A wonderful flight into the past. Many twists and turns keep you turning pages. Can’t wait for the next book.
