Shadow of Night review
To say that I loved this would be an understatement. I devoured it. I read A Discovery of Witches and immediately feel in love with the characters. Shadow of Night just deepened that love. It's so beautifully written, I was transported right along with Diana into the past. You almost forget that it's not really happening.
Matthew becomes a different sort of vampire than Diana is used to. Diana becomes a person she doesn't know as well. Watching her explore who she really is, and learning to harness it is like doing it right along with her. They were sent to the past to keep them safe, but is the past any safer? They are thrown into a world of secrets and intrigue. Who can really be trusted? The jumping between past and present normally bothers me in other books, but for some reason with this one it seemed natural. I liked seeing the family in the present time looking for them in the past. I highly recommend this book!! 5 stars
