In the final book of Deborah Harkness’s New York Times bestselling All Souls trilogy, historian Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to central Europe in search of a medieval manuscript rumored to contain the recipe for creating an immortal being. As they race against time—and power-hungry vampires who would stop at nothing to possess the spell—Diana and Matthew must decipher clues from centuries-old letters and manuscripts to uncover the true story of the book’s creation. And if they fail,shadowy forces will forever prevent them from finding what they truly seek: redemption for themselves…and for humanity.
