The #1 New York Timesâbestselling sequel to A Discovery of Witches is as âenchanting, engrossing, and as impossible to put down as its predecessorâ (Miami Herald)
J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Riceâonly a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has done with books one and two of her New York Timesâbestselling 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.
Harknessâs much-anticipated sequel, Shadow of Night, picks up from A Discovery of Witchesâ cliffhanger ending. Diana and Matthew time-travel to Elizabethan London and are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthewâs 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 Matthewâs past tightens around them, and they embark on a very differentâand vastly more dangerousâjourney.
