Book two of the All Souls trilogy plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies and subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the mysterious School of Night.  The pairs mission is to find Ashmole 782, but as the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them, they embark on a very different – and vastly more dangerous – journey.

This book was crazy – in a good way.  So many things happened, it was hard to keep it all straight.  But somehow I managed.  The similarities with Outlander continue, this time reminding me of Dragonfly in Amber.  There were lots of new characters, some good and some, well, psycho.  But psycho is what makes things interesting.  If this was any indication, book three promises lots of interesting.  I can’t wait.
