Although we were not lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this highly sought-after title, we will be joining the throngs of Harkness fans flocking to purchase it the moment it is released. Then our only challenge will be finding enough uninterrupted reading time to completely immerse ourselves in the conclusion to this amazing tale. A week on a deserted island with nothing but sun, sand, a tall glass of iced tea, and our shiny new book is sounding pretty darn good right now! Sadly that will never happen, but a girl can dream, right??
If you haven't read the first two books in this series yet (A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night) now would be the perfect time to do so. This is a complex tale, so reading all three books straight through without a break would undoubtedly be beneficial. Unfortunately, our high anticipation level and lack of patience will likely prevent us from doing a complete re-read before tearing into this final book...but maybe someday. These are definitely books that one could read again and again and still glean new details from the story each time.
Also, if you love these books but don't yet follow Deb Harkness' Facebook page, you should. She always posts the most wonderful and interesting extra content and is so lovely about answering questions. She is truly a class act and one of our favorite authors.
So, readers, are you waiting for this one? We hope you're as excited as we are for its release, and good luck to all of us in biding our time until next Tuesday rolls around! Happy reading, all!
