Summary

From the Sunday Times number one best-selling author of A Discovery of Witches, soon to be a major Sky TV series, a novel about what it takes to become a vampire.

From human to vampire....

Marcus Whitmore was made a vampire in the 18th century. Over 200 years later, he finds himself in love with Phoebe Taylor, a human who decides to become a vampire herself.

But her transformation will prove as challenging now as it was for Marcus when he first encountered Matthew de Clermont, his sire.

While Phoebe is secreted away, Marcus relives his own journey from the battlefields of the American Revolutionary War, through the treachery of the French Revolution, to a bloody finale in New Orleans, his belief in liberty, equality and brotherhood challenged at every stage by the patriarchy of the de Clermonts.

What will he and Phoebe discover in one another when they are finally reunited at Les Revenants, beneath the watchful gaze of Matthew and his wife, Diana Bishop?

Sunday Times number one best-selling author Deborah Harkness returns to the spellbinding world she created in A Discovery of Witches and, through the prism of an unconventional love story, explores the power of tradition and the endless possibilities for change.

Bring back original narrator.. lackluster story

Bring back the original narrator from the All Souls books.

Lackluster and no plot, basic love story with no soul. This book didn't even seem to be written by the same author as the others.

Disappointing storyline

Love this addition to the All Souls Trilogy

Loved the story. Great addition to the All Souls Series. Not really sure why Matthew had an Australian accent though - found that quite irritating.
