After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

I have listened to this trilogy three times and will listen to it again. I love the characters, also the minor characters who are very well depicted. The story line is long, fascinating and convoluted but the author keeps knitting the ends up and I didn't lose sight of the whole.
The reader does the story justice and added to my enjoyment of it.

An internationally best-selling phenomenon and queen of the Regency romance, Georgette Heyer is one of the most beloved historical novelists of our time. She wrote more than 50 novels, yet her private life was inaccessible to many but her nearest friends and relatives. With access to private papers, correspondence, and family archives, this classic biography opens a window into Georgette Heyer's world and that of her most memorable characters, revealing a formidable, energetic woman with an impeccable sense of style and, beyond everything, a love for all things Regency.

No secret stays hidden forever. A phone call from an old friend sets mysterious book researcher Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery that has eluded him for centuries. Little does he suspect a young librarian holds the key to an ancient secret, nor could he expect the danger Beatrice De Novo would attract. Now both will follow a twisted maze leading from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a passion that could destroy them both.

Welchen drei Worte würden für Sie A Hidden Fire treffend charakterisieren?

Accents must be learned. Europeans read the story too and are disturbed by strange accents.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

The reader makes the reading exciting.

Würden Sie sich auch für ein anderes Hörbuch interessieren, das Dina Pearlman spricht?

Yes, but I wish she would learn a Welsh accent.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Americans won't have problems with coq au vin being pronounced " kokobong" and perhaps don't know what a Welsh accent sounds like. Britons may find the pronunciation irritating.
