    Travel along with Mia Kensington through this riveting mystery thriller. Based in an institution for the mentally incurable and the criminally insane, the twists and turns in this novel will keep you guessing.

    What would have made Asylum better?

    I bought the Audible version. MISTAKE - could I get bigger caps please. A gravely voiced old man reading the part of a young, supposedly sexy woman? What gives? It totally throws off the story. It needed a different narrator so bad. I could not finish it. I totally lost touch before the finish. I mean really, who can listen to a gravely voiced man getting the hots for a guy when it is supposed to be a young woman? It is just screwy. It didn't make sense in my head and it was all I could focus on and the story was out of sorts as a result.


    Has Asylum turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just lost interest because the narration was so poorly done.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Cameron?

    Female

    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.

    Story

    I thought when I finished the first book that possibly the author would not be able to keep the same pace of interest through another lengthy segment. I was wrong. It was wonderful! My only complaint was that the reader made several obvious errors that could have been edited better. Occasionally she forgets who she is portraying and uses the wrong voice. Not tragic, but noticeable. Overall a wonderful experience.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    It has been a long time since I read a book that so adequately paints the story in my mind. I felt that I was able to completely visualize the tale and players. I'm looking forward to the second very much.
