Review:

'What a rich, thrilling and educational tale it is... A captivating and romantic ripping yarn' ( E L James, Books of the year 2012, Guardian)

'Deborah Harkness has done us proud with her magnificent, enthralling, engrossing sequel... Her weaving of time and ancient lore, of modern science and alchemy, or vampires, daemons and all-too-mortal humans is magical, wonderful and utterly addictive. You won't be able to put it down' ( Manda Scott)
