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.

    "Great listen!"

    I love time travel stories and after really enjoying A Discovery of Witches, the first book in the All Souls trilogy, I found this one just as good. The narration is very good, though one or two of the "English" accents are very bizarre. Overall it's really gripping though and if you like stories that mix fantasy, history and real life (and a handsome vampire thrown in) I thoroughly recommend this audiobook.

    Story
    "A chance encounter in Waterstones"

    I picked up the first in this trilogy of books, as I was browsing through Waterstones, searching for a good holiday read. I was totally captivated by a Discovery of Witches and went on to buy all three. I was delighted to find them as audio books.
    The sort line is intriguing and very well written. The character development is very good. The performance in the audiobooks is excellent and I really like the voice of the American performer (some female American voices in other audio books are quite irritating).

    "I enjoyed the 1st book more."

    Obviously the author knows her stuff re the past. It shows. I started this 2nd book in the trilogy over a year ago & gave up after 5 hours. I started from scratch just lately & plodded my way through. Way too long for me. I would look glumly at the number of hours I had left to listen to, & sigh. Probably would be better to present all 3 books as one film. To read it was an arduous task.

    "Some secrets are revealed..."
    Where does Shadow of Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Entertaining listen, which brings on to life a world of witches, demons and vampires and does not disappoint. You want to listen and listen till you know how the story of individual characters ends.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    A mysterious and scary Matthew - vampire, night, scholar...


    What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

    Jennifer's performance brings each character to life.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Before it all started...
