Selected by Indie Booksellers for the July 2012 Indie Next List
“How fantastic to find a second book that is every bit as compelling as the first. Harkness follows up A Discovery of Witches with a tale that moves confidently around Europe at the turn of the 16th century, and has readers mingling with Marlow, Shakespeare, John Dee, Raleigh, and, of course, Elizabeth I. Espionage and intrigue tangle with magic, mythology, and religion, while hints at who may become important players in the final book of this planned trilogy left me in happy anticipation of much more intelligent entertainment to come.”
