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 enchant-ing 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 re-unite 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 miss-ing pages takes on even more urgency. In the tril-ogy'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 knowl-edge 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 and translations, "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.

This book didn't go at all where I thought it would go, which is a good thing. I'm not going to write anything else and suggest you read it. The book was a fitting end to the trilogy.

Well Worth Your Time!

This trilogy by Deborah Harkness is an example of excellent writing with a gifted narrator and a story line that is enthralling. Even though a work of fiction, the characters come alive. There are so many of them but you find yourself getting to know each and everyone one, feeling their pain and their happiness. It is definitely a different type of book but entertaining nonetheless!
