I give this book 4 stars
I have been given this book by Netgalley to read and leave an honest review. I have been at a disadvantage however because I have not read Discovery of Witches or Shadow of Night which are the first two books in this trilogy, so I had no knowledge of these characters. Having said that I found this book to be enthralling as I love stories of Vampires, Witches and Daemons. Diana (WITCH) and Matthew (VAMPIRE) are in a race against time to find the Book Of Life ( or the missing pages of Ashmole 782 – an enchanted alchemical manuscript) in order to save themselves and everyone they love. This book is about family, love, secrets, spells and battles, its an action packed adventure full of suspense.
I am now going to buy The Discovery Of Witches as I enjoyed this book so much that I want to start at the beginning.
About this author
My life has been a series of left turns that nevertheless took me in the right direction (though it didn’t always seem so at the time). I went to college to be a theater major and ended up studying the Renaissance. I went to grad school to become a college administrator and loved to teach so much I became a college professor instead. I thought I wanted to be a Tudor-Stuart historian, and found myself a historian of science. I started blogging because a friend needed help on a project in 2006 and am still blogging about wine today. I started writing a novel in the fall of 2008, and it became a New York Times Bestseller in February 2011: A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES. The second volume in the All Souls Trilogy, SHADOW OF NIGHT, came out in July 2012 and debuted at #1 on the NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller’s List. What’s next? The final volume of the trilogy, of course: THE BOOK OF LIFE, coming July 15 2014 to the US, UK, Canada, and Republic of Ireland.
