Praise for Deborah Harkness and the All Souls Trilogy "Packed with gorgeous historical detail and a gutsy, brainy heroine to match . . . Harkness writes with thrilling gusto about the magical world." --Entertainment Weekly "Wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter or Twilight . . . An irresistible tale of wizardry, science, and forbidden love." --People "Romantic, erudite, and suspenseful . . . Harkness attends to every scholarly and emotional detail with whimsy, sensuality, and humor." --O, The Oprah Magazine "Enchanting, engrossing, and impossible to put down." --Miami Herald "Completely bewitching . . . Harkness works her own form of literary alchemy by deftly blending fantasy, romance, history, and horror." --Chicago Tribune "A big supernatural canvas . . . ranging across history and zeroing in on DNA, human and otherworldly. Age-old tensions between science and magic and between evolution and alchemy erupt as Diana seeks to unlock the secrets of Ashmole 782." --Los Angeles Times "The charm in Deborah Harkness's wildly successful All Souls trilogy lies not merely in the spells that its creature characters cast, but in the adroit way she has insinuated her world of daemons, witches, and vampires into ours. . . . Harkness casts her own indelible spell of enchantment, heartbreak, and resilience." --The Boston Globe "Deborah Harkness takes us places we've never been before. . . . Lucky for us." --USA Today "A stirring, poignant saga." --Us Weekly
