School of Night

by Deborah Harkness

The disappointing sequel to A Discovery of Witches, School of Night is a long and torturous tale of Diana and Matthew walking through time. I refuse to go into much detail!

In a nutshell: The couple travels back in time to find the enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782. That’s it.

This was really tough to read, which surprised me. A Discovery of Witches was so engrossing. To me, this was the author’s way of displaying her knowledge of history. With this sequel, Harkness has proven that she cannot craft a sequel worthy of the bestselling A Discovery of Witches. Too bad!
