    Historian Diana Bishop, descended from a line of powerful witches, and long-lived vampire Matthew Clairmont have broken the laws dividing creatures. When Diana discovered a significant alchemical manuscript in the Bodleian Library, she sparked a struggle in which she became bound to Matthew. Now the fragile coexistence of witches, daemons, vampires and humans is dangerously threatened. Seeking safety, Diana and Matthew travel back in time to London, 1590.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The relationship between Matthew and Diana lost the fire and passion from the first book. It needed this to continue and grow and the storyline to move faster.


    What was most disappointing about Deborah Harkness’s story?

    It was to long the pace needed to be picked up. To much history lessons and not enough story and where had the Passion gone.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Needed a much farster pace and the story line to maybe for Diana's magic to move at a greater rate it seamed for Diana to take forever to get anywhere as the story went along.and along....


    What character would you cut from Shadow of Night?

    To many of political historical characters


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the first book like everyone i looked forward to the second but was disappointed this is not to say i will not read the 3rd book. I missed some of the original characters from the first book mainly Diana's family. I hope we can get some of the fast pace and story line again and Matthew becomes again the strong leading man in the 3rd book
