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.

    "Just wow"

    A beautiful ending to the trilogy that satisfies the readers hopes. Preformed by Jennifer Ikeda, who's voices for each character are unique and spot on with the readers imagination of them.

    "Outstanding"

    I've listened to all three books at least 10 times. They are the best books I've ever listened to and I can't help going back over and over.

    "Surprisingly excellent!"

    Quite a wonderful read. She weaves a great story for one who doesn't care for vampire stories. I couldn't believe I was drawn right in. Enjoyed the reader very much. She is on par with Jim dale or davina porter. Excellent
