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.

It took me 4 years to finish this series! Not necessarily because I’m a slow reader, but perhaps more because of the way the life is. Many events and obstacles came in the way. Loosing one copy of a first book, then the second copy being taken/stolen by a lady at a bus stop. Odd indeed.
This series had me in awe, stress, relief, laughter, and many other feels. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I’d say the whole trilogy gets 4/5 stars. There were a lot of good moments in the series. This book being the final one felt more longing and drier just to get to the end. There were moments which gave me a good boost. for that, I’m glad since it’s important not to feel like the story is dragging itself. Glad I stumbled upon this series.
