Notă biografică

Deborah Harkness is a professor of history at USC, specialising in science and medicine in early modern Europe. She is the author recently of THE JEWEL HOUSE (Yale, 2007), based on her ground-breaking work on how science was practiced in Elizabethan London, as well as the international bestseller A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES. (And she really did once find a missing manuscript in the Bodleian Library!)


'Deborah Harkness has done us proud with her magnificent, enthralling, engrossing sequel... Her weaving of time and ancient lore, of modern science and alchemy, or vampires, daemons and all-too-mortal humans is magical, wonderful and utterly addictive. You won't be able to put it down' -- Manda Scott Praise for A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES: 'Intelligent and off-the-wall...irresistible to Twilight fans' The Sunday Times; 'A romp through magical academia' Guardian; 'A bubbling cauldron of illicit desire' Daily Mail -- Various
