Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated finale to the number-one New York Times best-selling trilogy that began with A Discovery of Witches.

After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy's final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.

With more than one million copies sold in the United States and appearing in 38 foreign editions and translations, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night have landed on all of the major best seller lists and garnered rave reviews from countless publications. Eagerly awaited by Harkness's legion of fans, The Book of Life brings this superbly written series to a deeply satisfying close.

    "WHERE IS REHAB"

    I have spent the better part of a week blowing through this trilogy. I've been so engrossed I did my best to ignore reality. Now that I have finished...WTF am I gonna do? Withdrawals are sure to set in! I absolutely LOVED all of the books AND Jennifer Ikeda did a masterful job with not just the character voices, but making the story come alive.

    "DEEP AND WONDERFUL!"

    The Book of Life is a beautiful conclusion to a story so wonderfully written. The author does a fantastic job of tying up all the loose ends and weaving everything together. She also throws in some edge of your seat suspense.
    I truly loved this trilogy and can't wait to read future writings by Deborah Harkness. She is an extremely skilled author and Matthew and Dianna will forever be in my heart.
    Jennifer Ikeda did an incredible job and brought the characters to life. I will be looking for other audiobooks narrated by her.

    "Amazing!!!!"

    Ditch your love of Twilight, moms!!! This is the grown up version, only ten million times better! I love the whole series, Deborah Harkness did her research for this series and you can definitely tell! This series is smart, funny, dramatic, intense, and incredibly romantic! Jennifer Ikeda is a great narrator, her reading is smooth and her character voices are believable. Fair warning though, don't listen to this series with children or even teens as this series tends to have some very sensual moments between husband and wife, they are not explicit or "X" rated, but they will tease your imagination just enough to make you uncomfortable if your kids are listening. I highly recommend this series!!!

    "Wonderful wrap up to a great trilogy!"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was a great ending to the All Souls trilogy. This book was more like the first than the second, which I preferred. I'm sad to say goodbye to Matthew and Diana but look forward to reading this series again! I'd highly recommend this series if you enjoy a little magic and make believe.

    "Fun book good message!!"

    Fun listen!! A real "page turner"!!

    Would recommend to anyone. It's about accepting all creatures/humans in an unique way of sending that message. No preaching, no over the top sex. Just a easy listen!!
