Time's Convert Reviews
This is a companion volume to Harkness’s All Souls Trilogy, which is like the thinking gal’s Twilight, as written by a historian of science. I read the first book, A Discovery of Witches, in 2011 and surprised myself by completely loving the story of the witch Diana Bishop, who researches alchemy at the Bodleian Library and falls hard for a centuries-old vampire, Matthew de Clermont. Although Time’s Convert is likely intended to stand alone, I felt it could do with a dramatis personae at the sta ...more
I absolutely loved The All Souls Trilogy! I was so excited when I saw this book coming out! I couldn't wait!!
I have now discovered that having read the Trilogy 4 or so years ago and not having it fresh in my mind is a large problem. It started on page one when I couldn't remember who the hell Phoebe is. It escalated from there.
The writing is good. The problem is I don't really care about the characters because I don't really remember who they are and there is no suspense or action occuring in ...more
The All Souls Trilogy is one of my all-time favourite series, a series I gladly tell everyone to read. Since finishing, I’ve been holding out for the next Deborah Harkness book I could read. Like many, I was expecting a certain story years ago only to be given Time’s Convert today. Time’s Convert may not have been the book I was originally anticipating in the universe, but I was more than happy to dive into it.
I would happily drown in any story set in this universe, but with Marcus being a chara ...more
A wonderful read for sure. This book went deep into history (fictionalizing it much like the Outlander series, not story but meshing history with fiction).
Having read the authors other books, I expected as much. I was very much invested in the main characters and their lives. I also appreciated former characters being included and the world building of a vampire from start to finish.
The only element that was missing that was in the previous books was that sense of danger. I never really got tha ...more
I think it's safe to call this one of my highly-anticipated reads of 2018! I mean, hello...Marcus!!!!
“Miracles should leave a mark, so that we can remember how precious they are.” p. 14
I do believe I owe Marcus MacNeil an apology. I've been so anxious to read Gallowglass's story (which Harkness, bless her forever, is writing next), that I viewed Time's Convert as somewhat of a placeholder. A way to bide my time until whenever Gallowglass's book arrives.
But I should have known better, as Marcus's story is just as worthy of being told. It was such a delight to return to the world of the All Souls ...more
To say that I am excited for this book is an understatement.
