Diana and Matthew time travel back from Elizabethan London to make a dramatic return to the present – facing new crises and old enemies. At Matthew’s ancestral home, Sept-Tours, they reunite with the beloved cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches, with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.
This book was my favorite in the series. It was also the craziest. It had a lot of plot twists I definitely didn’t see coming. Surprisingly, the ending was really satisfying. Usually the end of a series leaves me wanting more. I always wonder what happens next. But with this one, I didn’t need to. I got the “what happens next” before I reached the end of the book. It was nice. This book was really funny, too. Funnier than either of the others. This book – and series, for that matter – definitely holds a special place in my heart.
