In The Book of Life, 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.

Devoured this trilogy! Jennifer Ikeda delivers a stunning performance, bringing Harkness' rich world to life. Ikeda's mastery of accents and tonal shifts to differeniate between characters is truly wonderful and just adds that extra layer of depth to these audio books.
The book itself brings the trilogy full circle and to a satisfying conclusion while leaving it possible for Harkness to revisit this world and it's characters in the future.
If you're a fan of paranormal fiction this series is a definite must have.

The witnesses are legion, scattered across the world and dotted through history, people who looked up and saw something impossible lighting up the night sky. What those objects were, where they came from, and who - or what - might be inside them is the subject of fierce debate and equally fierce mockery, so that most who glimpsed them came to wish they hadn't. Most, but not everyone.

Loved it. Skeptical at first but it quickly drew me in. The characters are realistic and well-developed. DeLonge and Hartley take what most would scoff at as crazy UFO bullshit and present it as something not only serious and believable, but as a logical and rational conclusion. I look forward to experiencing more of this multifaceted project.
