Seriously, this is really good. And it took me two days to read as it is so long.
My "in a nutshell" story summary...
Diana is a witch and Matthew is a vampire. They must go back in time to find a very important book and keep Diana safe. Their lives in the past are turbulent and yet extremely exciting. Their love for each other...mesmerizing, tender, juicy and ten times better than any "shades" story.
My thoughts after reading this book...
Don't even try to read this without reading Discovery Of Witches. You just won't get it at all. This is a massive historical book...where at any given point you can run into William Shakespeare or Christopher Marlowe or Queen Elizabeth...among many others. It is fascinating to read because Diana and Matthew are living a history that they already know. They are there to find the book...Ashmole 782...and get back to the present time. At various points this looks very doubtful. Diana does not know how to use her magic...she is sort of bound...and she needs to find witches to help her.
Needless to say this book is huge...it is full of drama and history. Reading it is like living in the past while living in the present. There can be no summary of this book on my part. You will either love this series or not. I personally love it. I loved the first book and this book is a massive continuation of the first book. And it's not over yet. There is still more of this story to tell. I was awash in vampires and witches and spells and Diana and Matthew's story. Their love survives and grows as they work together to find this book.
What I loved about this book...
I pretty much loved everything. Matthew is my favorite vampire of all time. He is romantic and charming and protective...everything I would want in a vampire husband. I can only imagine his cold handsome fantastic good looks...white white skin and dark dark hair. I have no idea who might do him justice if this was a movie. I loved his father and his mother and Annie and Jack and Mop and the witches and the fire dragon and Gallowglass...so many complex characters to get to know. But I got to know and enjoy them all.
What I didn't particularly love...
I am a fast reader but this was not a fast read...there was so much book and so much to remember that I literally was reading this book for days...but that was not such a bad thing. I didn't love Christopher Marlowe...what a total creep he was and I wasn't that fond of Shakespeare either...lol.
If you loved Discovery Of Witches you will literally eat this book up...you will not feel as though it has been an entire year since you last were with Diana and Matthew on this time traveling adventure. You will be sad as you near the end of the book and you will pray that Ms. Harkness has again given up all semblance of a normal life and is tucked away writing.
It is almost with regret that I now turn to read the third book in the trilogy. I really don't want this to end.
Save your time and energy and skip directly to the third book to determine how the series ends.
