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.

This is a long book, so get comfortable. The author takes time to weave the story and develop the characters. You're going on a journey. This book, and the previous two titles in the trilogy, are well worth the listen.
I don't know. The Print version there are things I could go back and reread if I needed, however, the audio version was marvelous! The voices, languages, descriptions, everything came to life and it was hard to stop listening!
Too many to name.
Again, they were all great!
All 3 books are amazing and catch your attention so quickly. There were parts that I never saw coming, however, I don't try to guess. I enjoy letting the story take me where it will without overthinking things.
Excellent ending to an amazing story. I wish it would continue. Matthew Claremont and Dianna Bishop are a true union of opposites.
the story line is so interesting and suspense i love that about this series and the first one is just as good as the last
the man in it
all she was great
Very well written, good character build up, enough characters to make it interesting with out being convoluted. Narrator did a great job with both male and female voices, did not take long before you knew who was speaking just by the voice
Like the other books in the series the author provides a compelling, original story about witches, vampires, and demons that you can't put down. Beautifully narrated, the story comes to life so well I listened to it twice!
