Shadow of Night Giveaway!



I love my book club! It's a group of librarian friends and we call ourselves the NOprah book club. We read whatever we want (typically fantasy and YA) and we don't worry about having literary discussions about the book-it's OK if we just want to gush over the hot literary boys! It's seriously the best book club ever.

Last year, a book came out that my book club was all abuzz about. We read and loved A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. So of course, with the sequel coming out, my book club is eagerly anticipating the release! You know what we'll be reading in July!

I know we're not the only ones waiting to read Shadow of Night, so I'm thrilled to offer one lucky reader a chance to win a copy of the book (plus some very awesome swag!) thanks to Penguin Books.

About the Book: (From Publisher) SHADOW OF NIGHT picks up right where A Discovery of Witches left off.  Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont, a witchhistorian and vampire geneticist respectively, have timewalked to Elizabethan England on their hunt for a magical alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782—its sudden appearance and sudden disappearance have upended the delicately orderedworld of magical creatures (witches, vampires, and daemons), threatening tounleash unprecedented metaphysical chaos. 

Though Diana and Matthew have escaped thethreats of the present, they soon find the past holds its own challenges—Dianamust find a witch to continue her magical education, a task made difficult by arash of witch hunts across the British Isles.  And Matthew finds himself back in a life he thought he left behind, reuniting with friends and familythat had long been reduced to memory, opening wounds he thought hadhealed.  Some of those friends comprise the infamous School of Night, acoterie of visionaries that includes Christopher Marlowe and Sir Walter Raleigh. Together, Matthew and Diana must navigate the new dangers of an oldcentury—bringing them closer and closer to solving the mystery of Ashmole 782.
