Shadow of Night
Shadow of Night: A Novel | Deborah Harkness
The #1 New York Timesbestselling sequel to A Discovery of Witchesas enchanting, engrossing, and impossible to put down as its predecessor (Miami Herald)J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Riceonly a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has with her New York Timesbestselling All Souls trilogy. A Discovery of Witches introduces reluctant witch Diana Bishop, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and the battle for a lost, enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782.Picking up from A Discovery of Witches cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night takes Diana and Matthew on a trip through time to Elizabethan London, where they are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthews old friends, the School of Night. As the search for Ashmole 782 deepens and Diana seeks out a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthews past tightens around them, and they embark on a very differentand vastly more dangerousjourney.The Book of Life, the much-anticipated conclusion to the All Souls trilogy, will be published by Viking in July 2014.

#NamasteNovember #NightReading This is where I read at night (without Coco, who snores terribly). I have to read, every night before I go to sleep, my understanding/exasperated husband bought me a Kindle Paperwhite for this purpose. The tagged book, is the second in the All Souls Trilogy (A Discovery if Witches, The Shadow of Night and The Book of Life), for those that love their Vampires and Witches with ton of history too - an excellent read.

Shadow of Night, did not demand my attention as A Discovery of Witches did. To me it felt like the book dragged on too much, which made it sometimes had to keep my concentration. There were just too many characters to keep track of. A few that was unnecessary. I did feel the Elizabethan setting of the book was done very well, and I did get hooked in the book near the end. Overall the book was good, but not great as the first. ⭐⭐⭐

Shadow of Night | Deborah E. Harkness

'So even if I see a monster in my dreams, it cannot reach me?'

Matthew nodded. 'But I will tell you a secret. A dream is a nightmare reverse. If you dream of someone you love, that person will seem closer, even if far away.'

What an adventure I really enjoyed it.
The story was time consuming with rich writing, and many characters so it took me a little longer but it was worth it.
I plan on reading the third book in the series 🧛🏻‍♂️🧙🏻‍♀️

megzlynn I started this book back last spring then went into a book slump. I am thinking about giving it another shot. 1mo
Areader2 @megzlynn you should it was a little time consuming because there are so many characters to keep track of and details but worth it, now I can‘t wait to the second season! 1mo

This had a very slow start. You can tell the author enjoyed immersing herself in the 16th century Europe, but I honestly couldn't care less. But halfway through (or something like that) things finally started to happen, and once again I was impressed with how much detail this world was created. Interesting 2nd half didn't manage to turn this on pick side, but I still plan on finishing this series because I really want to know what happens! 📚

HOTPock3tt I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said about this book. I felt the same way 2mo

If you loved Matthew and Diana's story in A Discovery of Witches, then you definitely need to find out the other half in Shadow of Night!! Diana learning more about herself, get powers, and her family in this book brought many new things and questions to light! The ever elusive book could possibly be within reach, but at what price? This book answered many questions but had left me on the edge to find out what happens next!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 💫3.5 Stars | This is the second book of the All Souls trilogy, and it definitely felt like the middle of a story rather than a book on its own. It had its moments, but didn‘t pack the same punch as the first book. I‘m hopeful the third (and final) book will be better. The writing was still superb (don‘t get me wrong), and I enjoyed it...but I don‘t feel like enough happened.

sebrittainclark I felt the exact same way! 5mo
baes @sebrittain Did you like book 3 more? 5mo
sebrittainclark @baes yeah, I enjoyed it more, and thought book 2 was better in retrospect. 5mo

Diane and Matthew travel back in time as Diane begins to understand a bit more about her magic. In the past, Diane struggles to find a tutor to hone her magic and Matthew struggles with the past he left long ago. I was truly invested in these characters and this didn't disappoint.

I love the historical details and Deborah Harkness excels at bringing everyday Tudor life alive. The introduction of recognisable personalities of the time such as William Shakespeare and Kit Marlow were interesting, but it was the witches which fascinated me. The pace is slower in This book not as page turning as A Discovery of Witches but it is still a strong book. The characters and twists keep the plot moving forward.

This has been an incredibly busy week, and I am exhausted 😴 As predicted, the final weeks of school combined with my spring skating show have left me with zero energy and zero time to relax. Hoping to turn that around, starting tonight! This book has taken me quite a while to read because of so many interruptions, but I am down to about 200 pages left 🎉

My reading buddy has been very happy about some recent spring days - which means reading outside ☀️ while she pulls me around the yard, of course. The rest of the week has lots of rain and my spring skating show ⛸ so I don‘t think I‘ll get much more reading done. Savoring some time tonight with Shadow of Night - I‘m halfway through! This series is taking a lot longer to read than recent Shadowhunters books, but it‘s so worth it.

When I fall deeply in love with a series, I tend to blow through the chapters just to find out what happens as quickly as possible. I don‘t worry about missing details—that is what a second read is for! Today I continued my second read of the All Souls Trilogy. Hidden on the first page was this quote, which couldn‘t have come at a better moment. Reading is THE best therapy. If you‘re in the market for a great series—please check these out!

dalma_st_paul Completely agree. I breezed through the first one, but the second one needed some stops. But the HBO adaptation is pretty cool (and beautiful photography.) 9mo
