Giveaway: Buttons for The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness


The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness

July 15, 2014

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.

Remember last week when I mentioned that the conclusion to one of my favorite trilogies was coming out? Well, now you can win a button to celebrate the occasion! Leave me a comment below with your favorite witchy read and your email. Giveaway open from June 4-June 11.

Waiting On: The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness

If you’re a long time blog reader you know that I read and reviewed A Discovery of Witches and then waited with bated breath for its sequel Shadow of Night.  I’ve re-read both books more times than I can count, gaining new insights each time I pick them up. Since Shadow of Night came out in Summer 2012 I have been eagerly awaiting the final book in the trilogy.
