Review: The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness



The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy, #3)The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a delight for this last book in the All Souls Trilogy. Just when you think that the characters can't possibly grow any further, and there isn't any more that can be done Ms. Harkness pulls out a twist that can't be denied. I love how Diana is unable to live without Matthew and vice versa, not for the same reasons, but because they both are a type of medicine for each other. The Bishop-Clairmont family grows by leaps and bounds in this book with happy reunions and not so happy ones. But in the end most of the people who deserve to have it "stuck to them" get what they deserve. I feel though that there is a loose end hanging with one of the bad guys and that this trilogy could have become more of a series instead. Thank you, Deborah Harkness, for giving me the best books of 2016, and so far the best book of 2017. I hope that your endeavors are not finished, you are far too talented.
