Shadow of Night giveaway!

I have been a bit absent from blog land for the last few weeks. I have had to cut back on internet time and as a result I have been having trouble keeping up with with everyone else's blogs.

Somehow, I nearly missed a very important date though! Only the release date of my most anticipated new book for the year!

Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness has been released!

Here's the blurb:

"Together we lifted our feet and stepped into the unknown"—the thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestseller A Discovery of Witches

Deborah Harkness exploded onto the literary scene with her debut novel, A Discovery of Witches, Book One of the magical All Souls Trilogy and an international publishing phenomenon. The novel introduced Diana Bishop, Oxford scholar and reluctant witch, and the handsome geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont; together they found themselves at the center of a supernatural battle over an enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782.

Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens.

Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries, delivering one of the most hotly anticipated novels of the season.

I am so pleased to be able to offer a copy of this book as a giveaway. The lucky winner also gets a set of badges and a temporary tattoo!  (Click on the link to see the images)
