Riveting adult occult trilogy

Attention adult fantasy fans of Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and The Game of ThronesDeborah Harness's Shadow of the Night, the second book in a trilogy, is sexy, smart, and thrilling. Her first book, A Discovery of Witches, made the New York Times Bestsellers list. It began the trilogy by introducing Diana Bishop, a generational witch, academic, and expert on alchemy and Matthew Clairmont, a sexy, wealthy scientist – and vampire.
 
Shadow of the Night picks up as Mathew and Diana land in Elizabethan England. Diana has time “time-walked" them back to find out what is behind the secrets and rivalries that pursue them in the present. 
 
Harkness, an academic herself, writes with authority about the period. The tale is littered with fascinating references and personages. I also love the way she develops the relationship between the modern witch Diana and the age-old vampire Mathew as they grow into their relationship.
 
The sexy thriller takes the couple to England, France, and to Prague as they are befriended ands pursued by a host of fascinating witches, demons, vampires, and historical figures. Shadow of the Night is a page-turner of the first order and must-read for lovers of the genre!
