    Det begynder med fravær og begær.Det begynder med blod og frygt.Det begynder med en opdagelse af hekse.Historikeren Diana Bishop, der er af hekseslægt, forsker i alkymistiske skrifter og falder over et fortryllet manuskript i Bodleian Library i Oxford. Diana har ikke brugt magi, siden hendes forældre blev dræbt på grund af deres evner, men da hun mærker manuskriptets kræfter, aner hun farer og sender det tilbage i arkivet uden at afkode dets indhold og hemmeligheder. Hvad hun ikke ved er, at den gamle alkymistiske tekst Ashmole 782 har været forsvundet i århundreder og tiltrækker sig opmærksomhed fra andre væsner. Deriblandt vampyren Matthew Clairmont, som forsker i genetik. Meget imod sin vilje bliver Diana tiltrukket af Matthew, men et forhold mellem en heks og en vampyr er ikke problemfrit – især ikke da deres forhold strider mod en gammel pagt, som skal sikre ro og afstand mellem arterne og undgå at tiltrække sig opmærksomhed fra menneskerne. I takt med at Dianas magiske evner vokser, står det klart, at nogen vil hende til livs, og sammen med Matthew forsøger hun at finde ud af, hvad manuskriptet indeholder af hemmeligheder om arternes fortid og mere interessant; deres fremtid. Og det skal vise sig at blive noget af en rejse – både i tid og sted."Vidunderlig og fortryllende fantasy for voksne - en historie om hekse, vampyrer, dæmoner og mennesker spundet ind i medrivende historie om et forhekset gammlet manuskript og forbudt kærlighed." - LitteratursidenAll Souls-triologien er blevet filmatiseret til serien A Discovery of Witches, der bliver sendt på HBO. Hovedrollerne Diana Bishop og Matthew Clairmont bliver spillet af Teresa Palmer og Matthew Goode.

When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood.Fast-forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor--the young employee at Sotheby's whom Marcus has fallen for--is about to embark on her own journey to immortality. Though the modernized version of the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable than they were in the eighteenth century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever.A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not just for change but for revolution, Time's Convert channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the All Souls Trilogy instant bestsellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries.

    "Sammen løftede vi fødderne og trådte ind i det ukendte ... "Dette er den spændende fortsættelse af Heksenat om historikeren Diana Bishop fra Oxford, som er ud af hekseslægt. En dag støder hun på et gammelt, fortryllet manuskript, som det viser sig, at andre væsener – hekse, vampyrer og dæmoner – forgæves har forsøgt at få fingrene i i århundreder. En af dem er vampyren og genetikeren Matthew Clairmont, og et romantisk forhold udvikler sig mellem ham og Diana. I "Nattens skygge" er Diana og Matthew, ved hjælp af Dianas evne som tidsrejsende, søgt tilbage til Matthews hjem ved Oxford i år 1590. De vil skjule sig for dem, der misbilliger deres forhold, men de skal også lokalisere manuskriptet, før det bliver fortryllet. Rejsen tilbage til dunkle elizabethanske London er fuld af farer og spioner, men parret modtager hjælp fra Matthews venner i det mystiske selskab Nattens Skole, og Matthew bliver konfronteret med en del af sin lange fortid, som han troede var glemt og begravet. Deborah Harkness har endnu en gang kreeret en fascinerende og farefuld verden fuld af fantasi, alkymi, tidsrejser, kærlighed og magiske opdagelser.All Souls-triologien er blevet filmatiseret til serien A Discovery of Witches, der bliver sendt på HBO.
