The #1 New York Timesâ€“bestselling sequel to A Discovery of Witches is as â€śenchanting, engrossing, and as impossible to put down as its predecessorâ€ť (Miami Herald)
J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Riceâ€”only a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has done with books one and two of her New York Timesâ€“bestselling 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.
Harknessâ€™s 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 Matthewâ€™s 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 Matthewâ€™s past tightens around them, and they embark on a very differentâ€”and vastly more dangerousâ€”journey.
