This is the second book in the All Soul series. It’s an engrossing and enchanting read with lots of suspense from beginning till the end. When you pick up this book, it will be impossible to drop until you come to the very last page. Just like A Discovery of Witches from the same author, Shadow of Light captures the imagination of the audience as it is with all the books in the All Souls trilogy.
The book’s main character, Diana and Mathew embarked on a trip through time to Elizabeth London. There, there are met with a mystical world of magic and spies. They are still searching for Ashmole 782, which is a continuation of the quest from A Discovery of Witches. Diana had to look for a witch who can teach her magic. But Mathew’s past keeps hovering around them, causing them to take a very dangerous journey that may cause doom for them and their ambition.
Deborah Harkness followed the same storyline as she did with A discovery of witches. In this book, she creates a beautiful story as the main character tries to wriggle her way into the past. There are new characters introduced into the story, and they are endearing and refreshing.
The only downside could be the narration of Jennifer Ikeda, which is not exactly perfect. But the plot and storyline covers up for the narration in part.
There are so many highs and lows in the storyline, which makes it even more interesting. Each action comes right after another in successive splits. This makes the reader always wonder what is going to happen in the next phase of the book. Overall, Shadow of Night is definitely an interesting read.
