It was a long wait for Shadow of Night and it's more than equal to Discovery of Witches. This book wraps you in a world of magic. It incorporates history, art, alchemy, romance, and adventure. The words flow from the reader in the voices of the characters. Jennifer Ikeda is part of the experience of this book.
Not as good as the first in the series, but a good listen. The performance was solid, the storyline good, but wrapped in many details.
I really like Jennifer Ikeda's narration. The story was not as good as Discovery of Witches. It was still entertaining. I would listen to another of Deborah's books.
She has a great voice that let the story come alive.
I would definitely recommend this book and the 1st book in the series
Deborah Harkness has created a whole world with noted people in histroy. I't realy pulls you into the story..
Audible addict! A friend told me to try this, and it was incredible. I travel for work and this is a great way to make the miles melt away.
I love the characters in her story line. I am attached to them and want to see how this will turn out for them.
Scenes from London court.
She portrays the characters well. You can feel each characters personality.
Yes, it kept your attention.
Great second book, awaiting third.
What a great read/listen! I listened to her first book A Discovery of Witches twice. So when this came out I was thrilled. I felt like I was right there with the characters in 16th Century England. A magical experience in so many ways. Lot's of unexpected events. I can't wait for her 3rd book in the series. I will be listening to this one again soon.
Matthew. So much mystery behind the man.
Jennifer Ikeda performs Diana extremely well. She brings the character to life.
Shadow of Night is the perfect name for the second book in the series.
The story is very interesting. Gives a great amount of historical detail.
Phillipe's relationship with Dianna.
The Transformation of a Witch
I'm a landscape architect by profession and an avid listener of audio books ! I particularly love the historical based fiction series, like Courteney, McCammon, and Gabaldon,. I listen in the car, while designing in my studio and most evenings.
The story line was really weak. The first book had good characters and a well developed story. This sequel just rambled and stumbled along playing off the original story and other books of this type.
No this book just turned me off!
I sure hope not, but considering the downward spiral of what is called "entertainment" today, who knows.
Don't waste your time, $$$, or points!!
This second book of the Discovery of Witches trilogy is as riveting as the first. I can't wait for the third book. Jennifer Ikeda is an outstanding narrator whose voice performance stirs the imagination and helps develop the characters in one's imagination. I'm betting this series is in queue to become a blockbuster movie-series, a-la-Twighlight.
I don't have one favorite character-they are all part of the tapestry of the story and they are all central to the plot in some manner.
The easy flow and connection from A Discovery of Witches. No unnessary
preamble - it began as if you had just turned a page from the first book.
