Inhaltsangabe

From the Sunday Times number one best-selling author of A Discovery of Witches, soon to be a major Sky TV series, a novel about what it takes to become a vampire.

From human to vampire....

Marcus Whitmore was made a vampire in the 18th century. Over 200 years later, he finds himself in love with Phoebe Taylor, a human who decides to become a vampire herself.

But her transformation will prove as challenging now as it was for Marcus when he first encountered Matthew de Clermont, his sire.

While Phoebe is secreted away, Marcus relives his own journey from the battlefields of the American Revolutionary War, through the treachery of the French Revolution, to a bloody finale in New Orleans, his belief in liberty, equality and brotherhood challenged at every stage by the patriarchy of the de Clermonts.

What will he and Phoebe discover in one another when they are finally reunited at Les Revenants, beneath the watchful gaze of Matthew and his wife, Diana Bishop?

Sunday Times number one best-selling author Deborah Harkness returns to the spellbinding world she created in A Discovery of Witches and, through the prism of an unconventional love story, explores the power of tradition and the endless possibilities for change.

In many ways disappointing

If you’re looking for nice little stories about Diana and the Clairmont Family, this might be an interesting addition to your library. In this case I would give the book 3,5 Stars instead of 2.
If you’re willing to find read a new thrilling novel à la “All Souls trilogy”, you’re going to be very disappointed.

+ very nice to see what happens to Diana and the Children. I love the story of Apollo and the biting. I also like the children Dialoges and interactions with the other characters we already know and love

+ good recap of Marcus life. Cool “short stories” about his becoming a vampire and his life and struggles afterwards.

+ Phoebe story, getting to know her better and her family is great as well as Gallowglas and Freyas stories.

- The book has no real Plot, no adventure, no villain, no difficult situation to master, no real suffering or moving sequences.
If you’re acquainted with “the hero journey”, the basic storytelling guideline in literature, film, TV etc., you’re are going to miss it everywhere

- The character dialogues become very alienating at the end. It’s like if someone else took over to write the last couple of chapters. They don’t impersonate the personality we know. Specially the last sequence with Matthew, Diana, Chris, Sarah and the children. I find it really weird. You’ll have to find out yourself if you agree!

- Why is no one working ever? There’s important research to do.

- It’s sad not hearing the voices we already knew of the Characters. I really missed the voice of Jennifer Ikeda. The new reader, Saskia Maarleveld makes a good Gallowglas and most of the not so known Characters but Matthew and Markus voices scared me every time, again and again

Recap: nice to read but keep your expectations low. And please DON’T read it if you don’t know the “All Souls” series, wich I very much recommend!
