Shadow of Night: A Novel by Deborah Harkness

Posted by Angel kk at Tuesday, September 04, 2012

 






 I have to admit, since I finished Discovery of witches I have been counting down to the release of Shadow of Night: A Novel by Deborah Harkness.

As I was eager to plunge back into Diana’ and Mathews world of witches, vampires, and demons. I wanted to learn more about Diana herself and I even found myself wanting to know what  secrets of the mysterious book Ashmole 782 hides .
The focus of  Shadow of Night  is more on character development than furthering the mythology of the series.
During  A Discovery of Witches, Matthew was a bit of a mystery. A riddle in a riddle . He seemed to know everything about Diana, but she knew very little about him.  But this all changes in  this book. As we delve into the story  Matthew’s past is put on display,
The setting certainly makes  the past come alive with  vivid descriptions. Which makes you feel as if you are really there.
The story itself is much like the first book in the series. It pulls you in and leaves you wanting more.
Harkness has an amazing eye for detail. While some readers may  try to predict where the novel is going to go, they will be surprised time and again by what the author has in store for them. I honestly cannot say enough can’t say enough wonderful things about this series. This is one of the best series I’ve ever read and I don’t say that lightly.


The Story 


Book Two of the All Souls Trilogy plunges Diana and Matthew into  Elizabethan London, a world of spies and subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the mysterious School of Night.  The mission is to locate a witch to tutor  Diana and to find traces of Ashmole 782, but as the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them they embark on a very different journey, one that takes them into heart of the 1,500 year old vampire’s shadowed history and secrets. For Matthew Clairmont, time travel is no simple matter; nor is Diana’s search for the key to understanding her legacy.
