Waiting on Wednesday : Shadows of the Night

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme
 hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine
It's a chance to spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.




Shadows of the Night
by Deborah Harkness
Publisher:Penguin
Publication date: July 10, 2012
Series: All Souls Trilogy #2
Gene: Historical Paranormal Romance

Buy: Barnes and Noble /Amazon /Book Depository


"Together we lifted our feet and stepped into the unknown"—the thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestseller A Discovery of Witches
Deborah Harkness exploded onto the literary scene with her debut novel, A Discovery of Witches, Book One of the magical All Souls Trilogy and an international publishing phenomenon. The novel 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’ cliffhanger 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.
Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries, delivering one of the most hotly anticipated novels of the season.(synopsis from Barnes and Noble)

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for this release. I have already pre-ordered Shadows of the Night and requested an ARC. Discovery of Witches quickly stole my heart when it was released last year. You can see my review: here.  What are you waiting on?

I still haven't ever gotten around to reading the first book in this series! I keep meaning to, or I'll check it out from the library - and then get distracted. *sigh* Maybe I can get it done if I listen to the audiobook.

Thanks for visiting my WoW!
