'Rich in arcane detail, fans will relish this exotic cauldron of romantic fantasy' Sunday Mirror on THE BOOK OF LIFE

After travelling 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 in France they reunite with their families - with one heart-breaking exception. But the real threat to their future is yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for the elusive manuscript Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on a terrifying urgency. Using ancient knowl­edge and modern science, from the palaces of Venice and beyond, Diana and Matthew will finally learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.

From Publishers Weekly

19 May 2014 – In the final installment of Harkness's All Souls Trilogy (after Shadow of Night), witch historian Diana Bishop and her vampiric husband, Matthew Clairmont, freshly returned to the present from their sojourn in Elizabethan England, have ample challenges to contend with. They still seek the missing pages of Ashmole 782, the mystical manuscript known as the Book of Life and the key to the origin of all supernatural beings, and now must negotiate the internal politics of Matthew's extended vampire family. Also to be considered is the Congregation of vampires, witches, and daemons, who will not look at all kindly on the impending birth of Matthew and Diana's twin children. Meanwhile, Matthew and Diana are stalked by Matthew's murderous son Benjamin, and to save everyone, Diana must master her skills as a weaver one of the rarest witch powers. There is no shortage of action in this sprawling sequel, and nearly every chapter brings a wrinkle to the tale. The storytelling is lively and energetic, and Diana remains an appealing heroine even as her life becomes ever more extraordinary. A delightful wrap-up to the trilogy.

Customer Reviews

An excellent finale

After waiting impatiently, I got my copy downloaded at work the day of release. Reading instead of sleeping, this book kept me in thrall page after page. Harkness has completed a trilogy that you can enjoy over and over, falling into the lives of Diana, Matthew and their 'clan'.

I look forward to reading her next publication.


After patiently waiting for the conclusion to this amazing series, I preordered the final book to ensure I could read the book as soon as it was released on my iPad. To my dismay, many chapters have an error displayed in a pink box at the beginning of the chapter similar to the below:

This page contains the following errors:
Error on line 22 at column 297: Entity 'shy' not defined
Error on line 41 at column 91: Entity 'shy' not defined
Error on line 127 at column 223: Entity 'shy' not defined
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

Has anyone else experienced this issue and know how to fix it? Money was paid for this book and I would like to be able to enjoy it in full the way that the author intended.
Assistance in fixing this would be greatly appreciated.


Thankyou so much for this amazing series, it was a beautiful love story between to people that aren't supposed to be together, but love always wins out
