All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness download in iPad, ePub, pdf
To me, it makes the book all the more disappointing to see that there was potential, that it wasn't a disaster from the start. She hasn't been interested in her powers or much of her family since a tragedy befell her parents when she was just seven years old.
Everything is so deliciously complex about these books. Evolution of creatures, evolution of love, evolution of family, evolution of ideas. The energy is constant throughout the book. Among them is Sophie, a pregnant daemon who was born from witches and is pregnant with a witch baby. Normally I'm not too particular regarding physical books or ebooks, but for these I'd definitely recommend reading the physical book.
Most of the action takes place off-screen while Diana sleeps, or waits, or sleeps and waits. There are, of course, a lot of other things happening, but for me the central theme was one of evolution. All of a sudden she is surrounded by daemons, witches, and a particularly bold vampire when she returns to the library to continue her research. It's not gory, it's not violent, the vampires don't sparkle, and the sexy parts are sexy, not pornographic.
No matter how brief our courtship, I certainly felt bound to him. She sends the text back to the stacks where once again, no one can find it.
The book started out promising. Whether she's describing a yoga class for witches, daemons, and vampires or Diana's benignly haunted house, it's a treat to suspend disbelief. The very next day, Diana's life gets immeasurably more complicated. But she doesn't use her powers.
Diana is no slouch as a teacher or a student and her excitement at all the things she learns throughout her journey is magnificent. Annoyance and fear override her curiosity and she sends it back to storage. Despite the huge discount, I hesitated, and instead checked the book out from the library. People are willing to kill her to get their hands on the manuscript or to keep it buried.
It is a tale about life, society, history, family, and acceptance. Anyway, Diana is the last in the line of very powerful witches. Anyway, let's talk about why this series is so yummy.
