After traveling 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 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. (Goodreads Synopsis)

The Book of Life is a thrilling and satisfying end to what has been an amazing trilogy from Deborah Harkness. Well, worth the wait, the final instalment in the series sees Matthew and Diana face their toughest challenge yet. Wonderful characters, an exciting story and excellent prose make this series a must read for paranormal fiction fans. If you read the first two books, you will love this final chapter. If you haven't begun the series yet, what are you waiting for?
