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.

    "I shed a tear when it was finished"

    I listened to all three books in sequence and I am grieving the end of it. Jennifer Ikeda reads it masterfully breathing life into every creature. The story, multi layered grows and unfolds beautifully. Several times I had to pre plan my listen so I didn't need to interrupt it. I will listen to this again, when I can let go of it.

    "THE END AT LAST AND GOOD FUN ALMOST ALL THE WAY!"

    I never succumbed to skipping ahead but did get tired of leads' nobility-induced angst. I recommend reading the trilogy at a rate of 1 book per year instead of back to back as I did., to avoid irritation.

    "Great series"

    I loved all the twists and turns in the series. I love the love between the characters. They are perfectly complicated people and not cardboard cut outs.

    "I couldn't stop listening"

    The whole series was a great story. I found myself sneaking off to listen even when it was inconvenient, and listening even when I only had a couple of minutes. I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. The narrator was perfect.
