Shadow of Night
Books | Fiction / Occult & Supernatural
The #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to A Discovery of Witches, book two of the All Souls series. Look for the hit series “A Discovery of Witches,” now streaming on AMC+, Sundance Now, and Shudder!Picking up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night takes reluctant witch Diana Bishop and vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont on a trip through time to Elizabethan London, where they are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the School of Night. As the search for Ashmole 782—the lost and enchanted manuscript whose mystery first pulled Diana and Matthew into one another's orbit—deepens and Diana seeks out a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew's past tightens around them. Together they find they must embark on a very different—and vastly more dangerous—journey. “A captivating and romantic ripping yarn,”* Shadow of Night confirms Deborah Harkness as a master storyteller, able to cast an “addictive tale of magic, mayhem and two lovers.”**Chicago Tribune

"Didn't like it as much as the first book. Found it a little harder to get into but still an enjoyable read. much more emotional than the first one. so many characters. interesting mix of fiction and history. some surprise twists just like the first."
"This second book was so hard to get through. I only made it half way…. I gave up for now. The characters are just so unlikable for me personally and they make decisions that are just crazy for their age. The relationship timeline is also bonkers fast but the pace of this book is slow. I may give it another shot. I just didn’t want this to throw me out of my reading kick. "
"I love the Allsoul trilogy."
"Here’s another brutally honest review. I loved this book and I loved this series. I relate to the characters heavily and it was enough to make me get emotional when certain things happened in the book. Deborah does a wonderful job and what really impressed me is her attention to detail. Everything was historically accurate and you can tell she’s done her research. Absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to read the 3rd book!"
"I’m onto the Garth Nix Sabriel series! "
"It’s a really great trilogy if you’re okay with slow pace! "
