Publisher's Summary

It began with A Discovery of Witches. 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. But they soon realise that the past may not provide a haven. Reclaiming his former identity as poet and spy for Queen Elizabeth, the vampire falls back in with a group of radicals known as the School of the Night. Many are unruly daemons, the creative minds of the age, including playwright Christopher Marlowe and mathematician Thomas Harriot.

Together Matthew and Diana scour Tudor London for the elusive manuscript Ashmole 782, and search for the witch who will teach Diana how to control her remarkable powers....

Fall under the spell of Diana and Matthew once more in this stunning, richly imagined, epic tale.

    "disappointed"

    I found this book disappointing, mainly due to the plethora of characters from history. It was although the characters had to meet every character in that period of history. struggled to finish

    "Shadow of Night: A good follow up"

    I really enjoyed this book and the narration was very pleasant to listen to. I love how this series focuses on intelligence and academics in a supernatural context. It's something I find to be very lacking in this genre so this book is a breath of fresh air.

    Story
    "Annoyingly..."

    After a fantastic Book 1, Book 2 begins slow. .. remains slow... and picks up a bit at the end.
    Unfortunately as Book 1 was so good, even after somehow managing to listen to all of Book 2 I will be buying book 3!
    I just hope it goes back to the high standards of the first in the trilogy!

    "Still not disappointed"
    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to the first book I could hardly wait to get started on the second to find out what happened! Quite often I can be left disappointed by follow-up's as they fail to capture the excitement of the first but this did not disappoint. The cast of characters grew and so did the plot line and I found myself immersed in the story. Loved it.
