Description

The highly anticipated finale to the #1 New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with A Discovery of Witches

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.

With more than one million copies sold in the United States and appearing in thirty-eight foreign editions, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night have landed on all of the major bestseller lists and garnered rave reviews from countless publications. Eagerly awaited by Harkness’s legion of fans, The Book of Life brings this superbly written series to a deeply satisfying close.

    The three books are an excellent escape to fantasy and our own historical past. What a combination. Her companion book should be read along side the books as the pictures and references to people, places and things that gave her inspiration add greatly to this wonderful read.
  • Outstanding Read!

    From the moment I picked up the first book in the "All Souls Trilogy" I was hooked. The trilogy is a delightful mix of fantasy, history, science, and of course a love story. I found myself completely vested in the story and the lives of the characters. I read whenever I had a spare moment to get in a few pages. When the story ended, it was like parting ways with good friends. I wanted there to be more.
