Bringing the magic and suspense of the All Souls Trilogy to a deeply satisfying conclusion, this highly anticipated finale went straight to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. In The Book of Life, Diana and Matthew time-travel back from Elizabethan London to make a dramatic return to the present—facing new crises and old enemies. At Matthew’s ancestral home, Sept-Tours, they reunite with the beloved 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.

FINALLY AT THE END.
Well, I’m neither happy nor sad this is over. It was an okay series.
Yet again, you can honestly skip whole chapters and have missed nothing. The story finally swung around and started focusing on the actual, Book of Life (solid pun, right?).
There was also the addition of more characters that took a front running, THAT WERE HARDLY MENTIONED THE ENTIRE TIME. Turns out, this vamp was rather important to the plot of the series. Too many side stories that only kinda helped everything.
More on the adult side, a tiny bit of language. A few semi-descriptive love scenes. Descriptions of violence and torture.
