Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
Shadow of Night

nancy clifton, January 1, 2013

Deborah Harkness continues to deliver a well written tale of love, fantasy, and historical fiction. She stretches our minds as we explore the world through her characters: what does commitment, loyalty and love mean? What makes others so afraid of change and to embrace the new order? There are no pauses or moments of boredom in her writing. It is wonderful to find an author that can not only indulge my guilty pleasure but also to teach me a few things along the way. A great read that ends in a proper place as we contemplate the ending to come in the third book.

I took a nap in the afternoon - hoping, upon waking, to see black and white tents in the near distance.
