Time's Convert | Deborah Harkness
153 posts | 98 read | 5 reading | 102 to read
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches, a novel about what it takes to become a vampire. Set in contemporary Paris and London, and the American colonies during the upheaval and unrest that exploded into the Revolutionary War, a sweeping story that braids together the past and present. On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life, free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply-held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood. Fast forward to contemporary London, where Marcus has fallen for Phoebe Taylor, a young employee at Sotheby's. She decides to become a vampire, too, and though the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable in the modern world than they were in the 18th century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever. A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities for change, Time's Convert will delight fans of the All Souls trilogy and all readers of magic, the supernatural, and romance.

Rating: 10/5 stars.

My rating scale isn't broken, it's just this book was amazing. We have learned Diana's and Matthew's story and kept hearing about Marcus'....well, here you go. Pick this up and read because it will knock the air out of your body.

I finished in time for seeing Deborah Harkness. I enjoyed reading about Marcus and Phoebe, but Diana and Matthew still have my heart. I liked the way you got both stories.

Didn‘t like as much as the first series. I will probably still read the rest, because I occasionally feel the need for light and fluffy vampires 😁😁

CarolynM I haven't read this one yet. The 2nd was my favourite. I quite liked the TV series. Not sure if I'd have liked it at all if I hadn't read the books. 4mo
TrishB @CarolynM agree totally 👍🏻 4mo
Caroline2 I was kinda meh about the first book so I haven‘t read the rest of the series. But I enjoyed the TV series. 😉 I know what you mean about a bit of vampire fluff! Sometimes you just need bubblegum for the mind!!! 😁 4mo

TrishB @Caroline2 the book series gets better with 2 and 3. I enjoyed the TV series too as a bit of fluff 😁 4mo
catsuit_mango @TrishB I can't remember if you read those (and there is no feature to search for a book in someone else stacks) but if you want something light and fun with vampires I highly recommend Gail Carriger's parasol protectorate Serie. :) 4mo
TrishB @catsuit_mango thanks 👍🏻 have stacked to have a look at! Not read these. 4mo
catsuit_mango @TrishB you should be in for a treat, it's one serie I recommand to everyone :) 4mo

Decided to start this one finally after staring at it for a while lol. I have so many books going at the same time right now. I feel like I shouldn't have so many books started but I do like having the option to choose which world I want to live in for a little while. #DeborahHarkness #AllSouls #ADiscoveryofWitches #TimesConvert

This is the story of Marcus and of Phoebe‘s transformation into a vampire. I enjoyed Marcus‘s backstory of the American and French Revolution, but found both Marcus and Phoebe obnoxious during her transformation. The remaining story (which wasn‘t much) was just blah. They also had a new narrator, who was not on par with Jennifer Ikeda, who did the All Souls Trilogy.

I love love loved the All Souls Trilogy. I didn‘t love this quite as much... the plot didn‘t seem to add up to much. I expected more to have happened in New Orleans- the reveal was a bit of a let down. It‘s a pick only because it was fun to revisit old characters.

I love this universe! I really enjoyed getting to read more about Marcus and his history. I also loved that she still wrote Diana‘s parts in first person and that her and Matthew‘s story was still very much apart of this book. I hope she continues this universe and explores even more characters!

Very anti-climatic! I‘d only recommend this to die-hard All Souls trilogy fans. Most of it I found rather boring. And when something exciting finally did happen in the story, it was glossed over. It was missing the thrilling plot lines and romantic tension of the original trilogy.

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being Right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more concerts than reason. - Thomas Paine

The audiobook was excellent. The new narrator was not as good as Jennifer Ikeda, but then that is hard to achieve. If you are a fan of the previous trilogy by Deborah Harkness, this book is less adventure and action and more the background story of one of the secondary characters of the original work. I would not mind a couple more books in this universe, but I hope the author will eventually give us a totally fresh book in a new world.

It had everything I love - - a taste of the paranormal, American history, great character development, warmth, and it came full circle at the end by revisiting Hadley, Mass. Harkness always makes me feel for her characters - - even if they are vampires and witches! The only thing I wish it had was a summary of characters in the beginning as I read the trilogy so long ago that I forgot some of the story lines associated with each.

My Christmas audiobook. I loved the All Souls trilogy, and this is pretty good, but I Wish they had kept Jennifer Ikeda as the narrator. She is the best!

I just can‘t quit All Souls. Reading the last book of the actual trilogy was ho-hum for me, but I kept going. There‘s not a lot of conflict or action in this book, and I‘m not sure where the story is headed, but I enjoyed the backstory for Marcus, and also Phoebe‘s transformation. Weird that the Diana/Matthew parts were my least favorite, but she still annoys me.🤷🏻‍♀️

This was not a challenge book, so idk wtf I‘m doing with myself. 😂

sprainedbrain Look at all of those acronyms! I‘m feeling 17 tonight, I guess. 14mo
sprainedbrain @MidnightBookGirl That‘s the one I‘m waiting for! I really think I‘m annoyed with Diana because of the Gallowglass thing. I‘m so petty! 14mo
Ashley_Nicoletto I can‘t quit reading this series either. It‘s my guilty pleasure. I love it. 14mo
SW-T The Matthew-Diana parts were my least favorite bits too. Overshadowed the rest for me, though I get she was probably trying to tie things together. 14mo

I really hope this isn‘t the final book set in the world of All Souls. Though I did enjoy this book, learning more about Marcus, the twins development & a bit more about vampire rules & fledglings,I think it suffered from too many POVs. There was Marcus both now & 1700s, Phoebe, Diana etc. It just didn‘t feel as cohesive as the rest. That being said, if you‘re a fan of the series already, you will enjoy it. But where is my Gallowglass?!?

melrailey I saw Harkness on the tour and (1) she has many more books planned and (2) one is a Gallowglass novel. Apparently she gets asked for that book a lot. 1y
LeeRHarry I‘ve started to watch the series on Foxtel and I‘m enjoying it more than I enjoyed the book - maybe because of the beautiful scenes in Oxford 😊 1y

The hubby & the boys have gone to a comedy gala at the Sydney Opera House tonight, so I‘m taking advantage of the quiet to finish my book & drink some of the yummy tea I‘ve just received. This one is called Trifle Delicious & has berries, apple, hibiscus, currants & white chocolate.❤️ I‘m halfway through the tagged book but I find myself dragging it out because it‘s the last one so far. I really hope there‘s a new one next year🤞
