The Book of Life Book Review – Deborah Harkness


The conclusion to Harkness Discovery of witches is at the edge of your seat nail biter! It opens up to many chapters where medical mumbo jumbo will float over your head. Don’t worry it will all make sense after awhile. Then flies into Diana finding her strength and kicking ass! The ending is thrilling and gut retching. Definitely hit me in the feels! But overall I have to say the whole series was a delightful challenge to read. Most paranormal reads are short and easy reads that you can devour in a couple of hours but these are more my kind of length in a novel. And there is no fun if you don’t learn and challenge yourself while reading. 

Diana and Matthews future has finally fallen into place and their strength comes from their love for each other and family see them through! Love conquers all!!


My Rating: 4Stars

After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness’ 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.
