A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches—now a hit series streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder, and coming to television this April on AMC and BBC America—comes a novel about what it takes to become a vampire. 

On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood.

Fast-forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor--the young employee at Sotheby's whom Marcus has fallen for--is about to embark on her own journey to immortality. Though the modernized version of the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable than they were in the eighteenth century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever.

A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not just for change but for revolution, Time's Convert channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the All Souls Trilogy instant bestsellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 20, 2018 – In Harkness's rich but meandering new novel, the first in a new series set in the world of her All Souls trilogy, vampire Marcus Whitmore, son of Matthew de Clermont, is set to marry 23-year-old human Phoebe Taylor, who will be made a vampire herself. Marcus's required 90-day separation from Phoebe during the process inspires him to seek comfort at the home that his father shares with his wife, the witch Diana Bishop. Diana, through her magic, senses that Marcus hasn't come to terms with his past as a field doctor during the Revolutionary War and the events leading up to his rebirth as a vampire in 1781, and attempts to draw him out. Meanwhile, Diana and Matthew's delightful brightborn (half-vampire, half-witch) twins Philip and Becca are already manifesting an alarming aptitude for magic, and Philip has summoned a new familiar, a griffin named Apollo. Harkness's busy, meticulously researched narrative moves back and forth between present-day Paris and the days of the Revolutionary War, and her easy familiarity with her fully realized characters will make readers feel at home. Phoebe's transition from warmblood to vampire is particularly fascinating, as is the fraught history of vampires and witches. The large cast can be daunting, and those not already familiar with the All Souls trilogy may be lost, but returning readers will find this a delightful excursion.

Time’s Convert

Had to stop reading after 500+ pages. Seriously boring — seemed like nothing happened after all those pages.


Loved Harkness’s other works, but Time’s Convert felt like the kind of book a serial fantasy or romance author rushes out to make a deadline. All fluff and no substance.


I loved the all souls trilogy. As soon as I could, I preordered this book. Unfortunately this book fell short for me. The trilogy was full of suspense and I would stay up late into the night turning pages. This book has very little suspense. It was nice to see how the Claremont’s are doing, especially the kids, but I didn’t get enough of anything. The book just plods along until it ends. I kept waiting for the excitement that never came. I was shocked when I looked down at the page numbers to see the book was almost done. Where was the exciting plot? Just Marcus and Phoebe deciding to mate for life? Boring!
