A Discovery of Witches was a wonderful story. Shadow of Night picks up right where the first book left off. I listen to audio books when I drive, and I had a really hard time turning my car off. I didn't want to stop listening, and didn't want to book to end. (Although it does have a nicely wrapped up ending.) Can hardly wait for the next one! It'll take a long time, no doubt. These are long, well thought out books. The story captivates, and the narrator does a GREAT job! (She does mispronounce a few words and names, but it's easily overlooked.) Bottom line....I love this author's writing style! Buy this book! Buy the first one, too!
Couldn't stop listening!
Great accents, she really made it easy to know who was speaking by using her voice.
This book did make me tear up at the end.
When is the next in the series coming out?
You have to keep reading them, they stop practically mid sentence. I kept forgetting the point of the book.....
My son Noah set up my account But my name is Robin and I read like crazy, I am either reading a book or listening to one. Audio Addict!
Great story, Not your typical vampire store, has it all. And not a boy meets girl....you really feel like you are part of their lives, has so much history info too.(thats why long in the tooth) almost too much detail. All in all a great book!!
If I'm not reading, I'm listening.
Rich with Detail and meets all expectations
I love Diana's encounter with Queen Elizabeth
Wonderful accents. She does a fabulous job portraying the partially deaf Henry Percy
Gallowglass. When I met him, I was ready not to like him, but he became a cog in the wheel.
Ms. Harkness has made 1590's Europe and time travel feel perfectly reasonable and realistic. The research she must have done to provide the level of detail is enviable and I kept dreading that the end of each chapter was the end to the book. Diana and Matthew's relationship and personalities become deeper and they really flesh out as characters. Love this book. Better than the first one.
I enjoyed Shadow of Night much more than Discovery of Witches. I liked Matthews story.
Jennifer does a great job reading.
I'm a Joyful Vegan/Artist-Photographer who has become passionately addicted to Audible.
Shadow of Night and A Discovery of Witches are both in my top 5 books of the year.
My favorite characters are Matthew and Diana. They are an awesome team I can't pick one over the other.
You need to read the first book "Discovery of Witches", then you will understand the second, which has references to the first book and a lot of historical references, albeit with some literary license. Book two is Ok and sets you up for Book 3
Don't have one
Don't think so
I hope it doesn't keep going and going and going,,,, I will eventually loose interest
love listening to great books while I work, clean, and drive...a great way to experience great books!!!
mystery, magic, history
Diana, she comes into her own and grows in her magic
when Diana was tied to the post, her life in danger her dragon opens up from with in her and protects her and traps her attackers.
Magic, Mystery... Alpha and Omega..the world will never be the same!
I can not wait for the final book
This novel is why I joined up with audible. I was so upset where the first novel left off I had to find out when this one was available. It was only a few days old! Audible was the fastest way for me to get my hands on the story.
I enjoyed the idea of moving through time and some of the people Diana was able to meet and interact with.
Yes I have and no complaints.
Something focused more on "time".
