A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night (All Souls Trilogy) by Deborah Harkness

Ok, I realize this post has nothing to do with theme of my blog but I feel compelled to give a shout out to a great author (Deborah Harkness) and her fabulouoso books. 

Last October, 2011 I read A Discovery of Witches (ADOW). From the first page, I was hooked.  I devoured the book and was left wanting more; however, Book II: Shadow of Night wasn’t going to be realeased until July 2012. I pre-ordered the book via Amazon and I kid you not when I say I had my Outlook calendar marked, counting…down… the… days until the book was released. A week before the book was due to be released, I re-read ADOW and I have to say, I am so glad I did because there were things I had forgotten.  It didn’t come as any surprise to me that re-reading ADOW was just as enjoyable the 2nd time around, so that says something about the book. 

Currently, I am about 1/2 way through Shadow it is soooooooooooooooooo good!  It is so good, in fact, that I actually made it a point to slow down so as to not finish the book too quickly.   That being said, I have no idea as to when Book III will be released and as far as I can tell, it hasn’t even been written so Lord only knows how long I am going to have to wait.  😦   [sigh]

In closing, if you love history, especially European history, literature, vampires (not Twilight, more akin to Anne Rice), witches and daemons then The All Souls Trilogy is a must read!

  1. Shadow of Night is very good. Better than the first book, I believe. I am slowing down too because I can’t even think that it’s going to end. I will reread as I wait for the third book.

    • Dear Mom305, thank you for commenting. When I finish Shadow, I think I am going to re-read it also, because I’m sure there is a lot I missed. 🙂

      • I finished Shadow this past Wednesday. Now i feel lost. Ha-Ha! Do you have any idea when the 3rd book is due to hit the bookshelves? I haven’t heard anything.
