I enjoyed this book more than the first one. It was long at times and still with a lot of characters but the story picks up right after the firt one and it was well written and fun to read. ( )

Good book - but sometimes reasoning behind the character's decisions break down.

SPOILER:

The main character is becoming continually more annoying. The assumptions she makes about her magic get forgotten and she has to start over. That can get old. ( )

I really enjoyed this book, and felt the author enjoyed writing it. A couple of unexpected moments I didn't see coming! Though I had a couple of teeny gripes, I really enjoyed it and cannot wait for book three. (I did write a longer post on my blog but thought it too long to post here) ( )

Epigraph
The past cannot be cured.
~ Elizazbeth I
Queen of England
Dedication
To Lacey Baldwin Smith,
master storyteller and historian,
who suggested some time ago that I should think about writing a novel.
First words
We arrived in an undignified heap of witch and vampire.
Quotations
You're impossible. Stop worrying what other women do. Be your own extraordinary self.
All that Children have need of is love, a grown-up to take responsibility for them, & a soft place to land.
~ Matthew Roydon
It was as Matthew said, Chidren needed love, a reliable source of comfort and an adult willing to take responsiblity for them.
~ Diana Roydon
One should find wholeness in marriage, but it should not be a prison for either party.

Book description
"Together we lifted our feet and stepped into the unknown."

A Discovery of Witches, Book One of the magical All Souls Trilogy, introduced Diana Bishop, Oxford scholar and reluctant witch, and the handsome geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont; together they found themselves at the center of a supernatural battle over an enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782.

Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens.
