    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Hallie says: "Even better than A Discovery of Witches"
    "Overall - boring"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The author's first book was an OK read - had a story line that was entertaining. This one, however, was agonizingly slow-moving and the story line was boring.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not another one by this author.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Ikeda?

    This would have been a better listen if it could have included various readers. Jennifer's voice changes were interesting, but male characters lost their masculinity with her voice.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend this one for audio book. Perhaps it reads better on your own.
