Review: The Book of Life, Deborah Harkness

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book on Netgalley from the publisher in return for an honest review*
The Book of Life, Deborah Harkness
After travelling through time, 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 family, 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.

Deborah Harkness is a student and scholar of History. She has two non fictional works in her name and is the founder of the Good Wine Under $20 blog.

You must know that feeling. You want to read the next book in a series, in this case a trilogy, but you know it is the last and when you are done reading... it is over. Though I never really gave the All Souls Trilogy very high star ratings I love it. It is an engaging story with a lot of action and one very powerful woman. I totally love Diana Bishop and she should be president of the world. But you know it is vampires and witches and romance and all that so it is not really a book I would quickly recommend or that anyone would like.

As said Diana is a woman who knows how to handle herself. In The Shadow of the Night a lot happened and with a lot of new knowledge and other surprises Diana and Matthew return home. Knowing what happened (trying to be spoiler free here) I would have expected her to be more careful but her goal is clear and she just goes for it trying to make everything right for her future and that of her family. I loved the developments in the third book and felt that most story lines were closed in a correct way.

I didn't know this was a trilogy when I first saw this book pop up everywhere. Sounds good!
