Crossfinn Since you're a librarian, see if you can read it through NetGalley. http://www.netgalley.com/

Erica Thank you for the tip! I've seen mentions of NetGalley before, but never looked into it. I submitted my request, so we'll see how it turns out. :)

Linda Hi Erica, I also loved this book and am anxiously awaiting Shadow of Night!

Julie I read Shadow of Night and LOVED IT even though I think the editing missed a few things. I keep going back through it the find out what happened to Aunt Em. Towards the end, Yasbleau said to Sarah who was drinking and smoking and mourning Em, that the people who killed her will be revenged by the de Cleremonts. What happened to her? Did I read the book so fast (3 days) that I missed something? Did they leave out the birth of Margaret on purpose? What do you think? I, too, am not patient. I absolutely was so engrossed in this book that several parts made me cry.

You didn't miss anything, and there was no editing mistake--Em's death happened "off camera," as did the birth of the baby. I'm sure we'll learn about these events in Book 3.

Erica Yes, I agree with Crossfinn. These are the unresolved plot lines that I mention toward the end of my review. I'm very much hoping that Ms. Harkness delves into these issues and how they came about within the first 50 pages of volume 3. It's almost like talking to a good friend on the phone when she mentions something amazing that happened, and then her battery dies and you have to wait several hours to find out all the juicy details. So agonizing, I know, though it is reassuring to hear that I'm not alone in my desire to find out what will (and has) happened. :)

Julie thanks so much the help! I spent hours re-reading parts of the book trying to see if i missed something.

Serena I totally agree. I am so impatient for the next book!

Anne Marie I felt the same way about the character list at the end of the book--I also was reading on a Kindle, so I was thinking many times during the story that I wish I had a character list to refer to and didn't know it was there all along. I also thought the beginning of the book was a bit of a rough start. Before long though, I had a hard time putting it down, and now I am so frustrated to have to wait for the next book!
