The author elaborates on some of the plot themes from the first two books and reintroduces some of the characters but she also tells a new story in this book as well as rounding off the whole trilogy. This is really a thriller as Diana and Matthew try to find their enemy before he can do them damage as well as prove to the supernatural community that much of what they have thought about their history is wrong and is stifling their future. Woven in with this is Diana and Matthew's story as they return from their time in the past, deal with Diana's pregnancy and try to save the lives of their friends.
The author doesn't make many wrong moves in this complex and engrossing story. It starts slowly but stick with it as it begins to pick up pace to a very satisfying conclusion. Lots of threads are woven through the story and there are many themes here - if you enjoyed the way in which the first two books are written you will love this too. This is the type of book that lives with you after you have finished it and I know that I still have some questions about some details which means that I want to reread all three books as soon as possible.Read more ›
I have never been gripped by a story in nearly 30 years of extensive reading.
Deborah Harkness has created a cast of characters to love and loathe and with nothing in between, and it would be a crying shame to never hear from these wonderful characters again.
Thank you Deborah!
Set in Matthew's Sept-Tours chateau, the duo had to deal with teething troubles brewing among the vampire family. Benjamin Fuchs, the vampire son of Matthew from an earlier marriage, is stalking them with intent to cause them grievous harm. In order to protect everyone, Diana needs to sharpen her skills as weaver, which is one of the rarest but most effective witch powers. Added to this is the advancing pregnancy of Diana with twins which upset the Congregation of vampires, witches and daemons. It is a ticklish situation because relationship between vampires and witches is considered unacceptable and against the covenant. Dark forces are at work seeking to destroy or separate them. Diana and Matthew must handle the delicate situation with wisdom and astuteness, and at the same time meet troubles head-on to survive.

out of the story. I loved harry potter books and films, and the story is on similar lines but different. have now passed the books down to my son to read on.. recommend people to read these books. - I only picked one these books up from a boot sale, and had to purchase the other 2 otherwise I wouldn't have heard about Deborah harkness.
