This is book number 3 in the All Souls Trilogy series.
Harkness does not skip a beat with this, the third and final book in the All Souls Trilogy.
Diana and Matthew return to the present and re-unite with many of the characters from the first book, friends and family both. Diana discovers and embraces her full potential as a weaver, and along with Matthew, they bring together, and fully realise, the formidable family they have created.
The fullness of the characters in these novels is outstanding, as is the mythically magical world they live in. A wonderful ending to a much loved trilogy. — Becky Doherty
I JUST REALLY LOVE THIS SERIES!
What an EPIC conclusion to one of the most amazing book series I've ever read. It's crazy to believe that this all started with Deborah Harkness wondering what a more grown up version of Twilight would be like if she mixed in her historian knowledge.
The third book in the All Souls series takes us back to present day with Diana and Matthew, who are now expecting twins and the Congregation (and other mysterious foes) are still trying to take their happiness away. What this book did that was different from the previous two books was SEPARATE Matthew and Diana for a big chunk of the story, which was as hard for me as I'm sure it was for them. I love this couple so much guys, I just want them to be happy.
The conclusion to this three-book journey for Diana and Matthew ends the only way it can: bloody, brilliantly, beautifully. Nearly everything is tied up nicely and I definitely DID cry when I closed this book. I highly recommend this series! — Kirstin Swartz
