SNEAK PEEK! THE BOOK OF LIFE by Deborah Harkness

The highly anticipated finale to the #1 New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with A Discovery of Witches


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.

The thrilling final installment to the beloved, New York Times bestselling All Souls trilogy – hits shelves July 15. Over a million copies have been sold, and readers have fallen in love with Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont, whose adventure in THE BOOK OF LIFE picks up right where Shadow of Night ends as the couple travel through time to continue their hunt for Ashmole 782, the enchanted alchemical manuscript that every magical being desperately wants their hands on. Booklist has said of THE BOOK OF LIFE, “Harkness proves to be quite the alchemist as she combines elements of magic, history, romance, and science, transforming them into a compelling journey through time, space, and geography…The conclusion of this paranormal adventure is guaranteed to fly off the shelves.”
