At Matthew’s ancestral home, Sept-Tours, they reunite with the beloved cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches—with one significant exception.

The Book of Life
The third book in the series opens with the deceased witch Emily Mather and vampire Philippe de Clermont, as ghosts, seeing Matthew and Diana arrive to Sept-Tours. They realize that Diana is pregnant with twins by Matthew. When Emily says that Diana has never liked change, Philippe responds it's because Diana is afraid of what she must become. Emily was at the temple dedicated to the goddess near Sept-Tours, as well as vampire Gerbert of Aurillac and witch Peter Knox. Phoebe is iron-willed and diplomatic. Peter Knox was touching Emily's head, then, when Emily's partner, Sarah, arrived and shouted her name, Knox released Emily, who crumpled to the ground unconscious and could not be revived.
I am so glad of the various mediums of books us readers have at our hands these days. I had wondered then, if the second book will give me further answers on these two questions:. At this point, I know that the final book will definitely have answers to my first question, but my second question needs to become a given, for the purpose of the story, I guess. In fact, in this book, there are more and more references of how Mathew hated witches and would have never considered to be with one, rather mate one. All that said, oh my goodness, was I blown away with the detailed description of the 16th Century England and some parts of Europe!
This trilogy has been about preconceived notions, misconceptions, love, duty to family, acceptance, tolerance, and faith. When I looked at this way, then it made perfect sense. The Book of Life is a mystery we all want answers to — witch, vampire, demon, and human — where do we come from. Though the focus of this book is on the first three, creatures, the point is made. I was the human looking into their lives and understanding through their struggles, strife, joys, happiness, wonderings, and wanderings.
