Synopsis

The highly anticipated finale to the #1 New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with A Discovery of Witches

After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness’s enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew’s ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches—with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy’s final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.

With more than one million copies sold in the United States and appearing in thirty-eight foreign editions, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night have landed on all of the major bestseller lists and garnered rave reviews from countless publications. Eagerly awaited by Harkness’s legion of fans, The Book of Life brings this superbly written series to a deeply satisfying close.

The book Of Life
May 16th, 2015
I truly enjoyed this book and the series. I had a difficult time putting it down to attend to other things. The story was complete, though there are characters I would like to know more about. The history was well researched and explanations relevant. I will watch for other books by Deborah Harkness.

Tedious
May 13th, 2015
This series could have been wrapped up in 2 books. The final book was tedious and I had to force myself to finish it. Weak ending and overall a very disappointing read.

Perfect ending to a perfect series
March 6th, 2015
I stumbled across the first of the series "A Discovery Of Witches" through a review in People magazine. Was not disappointed at all and got hooked but the story and the wonderful writing. The second "Shadow of the Night" was equally as wonderful. "The Book of Life" wraps it all up and was the perfect end to a series you won't want to end. I hear it is going to be made into a movie and can't wait to see how it is brought to life on screen. Get all three and settle in as you won't want to put them down.
