This week my WoW is Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness, the sequel to the epic/crazy A Discovery of Witches. (Check out Crazy Camper's review here.) This is not YA, but let me tell you, Harkness packs in the usual suspects--magical powers, insta-love, and cursed lovers, PLUS a healthy dose of French chateaus, yoga, and red wine. What is not to like?
Diana Bishop,Oxford scholar and reluctant witch, and handsome geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont discovered a magical manuscript known as Ashmole 782 and found themselves in a battle to unlock it's secrets in book one. In Shadow of Night the two love birds travel back in time to Elizabethan London. Diana looks to learn more about her magic and Matthew is forced to confront his past while the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens.
This book is part of a trend: shadows and night and blood (oh my!). My brain keeps trying to mix it up with Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman. Do you sense a trend, too? The good part is, they all look great. What are you "Waitin' on"?
