The Cover is here! The Book of Life

My countdown clock has been going for a few weeks and now there is finally a cover for the book I have been waiting for so impatiently, The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness.  The cover is gorgeous (in my opinion of course) and it goes perfectly with the two previous book covers.  This is the third book in the All Souls trilogy.  The first two are A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night.  If you haven't read them yet, you still have time before this book comes out in July!

Synopsis (no spoilers):
“After traveling through time in SHADOW OF NIGHT, the second book in Deborah Harkness’s enchant­ing series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew’s ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they re­unite with the 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. In the tril­ogy’s final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowl­edge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.”

I am super excited to finally read the final installment of this book but it is just a tad bit sad also, because once i read it, it will be over.  I can't wait to see what adventures our witch and vampire couple encounter this time around now that they have returned to the present.
