Shadow of Night
A little spoiler here: In this book, Diana and Matthew have traveled back in time to 1591. That alone makes this book awesome. Especially when we are introduced to Sir Walter Raleigh, Queen Elizabeth, and William Shakespeare. In the first book, I felt that Diana was a very strong independent woman and was not frail and was a could-beat-the-crap-out-of-you-with-an-oar type. I feel like she lost that strong independent woman vibe in this book. I don't want to say she was weak, but Matthew was definitely the dominating force in this book. That being said, I still love her character. I loved reading as she discovered more about her powers and what it meant to be a witch. I do have to say that around the middle of the book it did slow down a bit and made it more difficult for me to get through. Once you get past that slower part though the book really picks up and you zoom through it. As I said previously, these books have a lot of story and are full of character developments. Yeah we meet big bad vampires and witches and one might die here and there, but no epic gory battle scenes. I am perfectly fine with that.
I cannot wait to move on to the next book. Oooh, the next book comes out next Tuesday! Woohoo! Barnes & Noble here I come!
