'A bubbling cauldron of illicit desire...all the ingredients for an assured saga that blends romance with fantasy' - The Daily Mail 

In a world of witches, daemons and vampires the fragile balance of peace is unravelling. Diana and Matthew's forbidden love has broken the laws dividing creatures. To discover the manuscript which holds their hope for the future, they must now travel back to the past.

When Diana Bishop, descended from a line of powerful witches, discovered a significant alchemical manuscript in the Bodleian Library, she sparked a struggle in which she became bound to long-lived vampire Matthew Clairmont. Now the coexistence of witches, daemons, vampires and humans is dangerously threatened.

Seeking safety, Diana and Matthew travel back in time to London, 1590. But they soon realise that the past may not provide a haven.

Reclaiming his former identity as poet and spy for Queen Elizabeth, the vampire falls back in with a group of radicals known as the School of Night. Many are unruly daemons, the creative minds of the age, including playwright Christopher Marlowe and mathematician Thomas Harriot.

Together Matthew and Diana scour Tudor London for the elusive manuscript Ashmole 782, and search for the witch who will teach Diana how to control her remarkable powers.

“Excellent set up for book 3”

Sometimes sequels don't live up to the first book, not so with Shadow of Night. It rushes you off to Elizabethan England and keeps throwing new challenges at Matthew and Diana and barely seems to pause for... More

“Unforgettable”

At first I was slightly disappointed, missing the modern Oxford/medieval France settings of the first book in this trilogy. And I wondered whether the erotic charge between Diana and Matthew could be sustained now... More
