    This is a companion book to the author's trilogy about Diana Bishop and Matthew de Clairmont. I shouldn't have to say it because it's obvious, but just in case: one really should only read this book AFTER having finished the trilogy because of major spoilers. The book contains th...

    Imaginary worlds are just as deserving of guidebooks as the real world places we all love, and the All Souls universe now has a Baedecker's worthy of it. The World of All Souls is an amazing guide to my favorite universe. Talk about a swoon worthy total package. It's a work that defini...

    All this book is, is retelling what the entire trilogy is about. There's about 2 hrs of just going over each character's name and what the names mean. Very boring. You must be a die hard fan of this trilogy to enjoy this and care about any of this. I was very disappointed. Not what I e...

    The World of All Souls is the perfect companion to the All Souls Trilogy. It allows the reader to experience the All Souls universe in vivid technicolor! As a reader, you not only get to know some of the minute details of the characters, their backgrounds, and origins, you?ll also...

    I wasn?t even aware that this book was a thought until it popped up on my library?s website. I grabbed it thinking it was the new book coming out, didn?t pay that much attention, just knew it was in the series. Turns out this book is essentially the bible of the series. The autho...

    I love the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness so I was thrilled to get to read this preview of the guide to the series. It looks to be fascinating and engaging even though I only saw a few pages of it. I eagerly look forward to reading the complete work later this year. I am reviewi...

    Honestly, this was not for me. You SHOULD NOT read it while you are reading the series, because even if you wanted to look up a specific character you would be treated to spoilers for the series. Spoilers are throughout this and I can seriously only recommend you read it after you have...

    Great information and insight. I will use the book as a reference guide when I need to refresh myself about something in the All Souls Trilogy. ...

    Great book. A book that delves into the details in the All Souls series....insights, back history.....just a great book to accompany the series. The history of locations and characters.....it is hard to find the right words but this is a wonderful book for those that "live" the All Sou...

    I read bits here and there. But I don't think this is a book I'll finish straight through. It's an interesting reference. I read all the cut chapters/outtakes for books. There is one for DOW and one for SON. Unfortunately, nothing from BOL. I enjoyed those and the author notes. I t...

    Wow! Not an encyclopedia but a compendium of interesting information about the All Souls Trilogy. The drawings are fabulous and render the images from the books faithfully and creatively; truly the images are a joy to behold. Definitely a must for All Souls trilogy lovers. ...

    Enjoyable, though missing some things I really hoped to learn (e.g. all of Gallowglass's names--we know one of his names because one of the twins is partially named for him, but in his entry under full name it just says "Gallowglass de Clermont")--there are a few instances like that wh...

    The format was a pleasant surprise- the various narrators, the author herself, the organization of the book, it?s all new to me; as a long time Harkness fan, it was not what I expected yet it turned out to be better than I expected. Harkness answers nearly every question a reader mig...

    A must-have for fans of the All Souls Trilogy! Filled with all the background (and more) to make the Trilogy's world come even more alive, it has history and fantasy and wonderful art. Not one's usual compendium, it's a beautifully researched and drawn expansion of the world we've come...

    I wanted this to be another addition to the book series because I really loved the whole story line. It is a fantastic series but this is not what I expected. I got it last night and returned it this morning. Just a guide and not of any interest to me at all. Read the outline is my bes...

    All this book is, is retelling what the entire trilogy is about. There's about 2 hrs of just going over each character's name and what the names mean. Very boring. You must be a die hard fan of this trilogy to enjoy this and care about any of this. I was very disappointed. Not what I e...

    As always love anything relating to Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. ...

    Brilliant! Must have for any DOW fans. ...

    This book is a compendium of information about the All Souls Trilogy. Some of the information can be found in the books, but much of it is only hinted at or not mentioned at all in the books. For fans of the All Souls world, this book is an excellent read as it gives you insights both ...

    Honestly, this was not for me. You SHOULD NOT read it while you are reading the series, because even if you wanted to look up a specific character you would be treated to spoilers for the series. Spoilers are throughout this and I can seriously only recommend you read it after you have...

    Excellent. Very informative. Beyond all the historical references, including photos, glossary, etc. one of the most enjoyable parts of the book were two small sections where the author gave you a quick short story from a place in the books where she could insert a little something inte...

    Great information and insight. I will use the book as a reference guide when I need to refresh myself about something in the All Souls Trilogy. ...

    Great book. A book that delves into the details in the All Souls series....insights, back history.....just a great book to accompany the series. The history of locations and characters.....it is hard to find the right words but this is a wonderful book for those that "live" the All Sou...

    I read bits here and there. But I don't think this is a book I'll finish straight through. It's an interesting reference. I read all the cut chapters/outtakes for books. There is one for DOW and one for SON. Unfortunately, nothing from BOL. I enjoyed those and the author notes. I t...

    Wow! Not an encyclopedia but a compendium of interesting information about the All Souls Trilogy. The drawings are fabulous and render the images from the books faithfully and creatively; truly the images are a joy to behold. Definitely a must for All Souls trilogy lovers. ...

    Enjoyable, though missing some things I really hoped to learn (e.g. all of Gallowglass's names--we know one of his names because one of the twins is partially named for him, but in his entry under full name it just says "Gallowglass de Clermont")--there are a few instances like that wh...

    The format was a pleasant surprise- the various narrators, the author herself, the organization of the book, it?s all new to me; as a long time Harkness fan, it was not what I expected yet it turned out to be better than I expected. Harkness answers nearly every question a reader mig...

    The format was a pleasant surprise- the various narrators, the author herself, the organization of the book, it?s all new to me; as a long time Harkness fan, it was not what I expected yet it turned out to be better than I expected. Harkness answers nearly every question a reader mig...

    More through and detailed than I could have ever hoped for. Just fantastic. ...

    A must-have for fans of the All Souls Trilogy! Filled with all the background (and more) to make the Trilogy's world come even more alive, it has history and fantasy and wonderful art. Not one's usual compendium, it's a beautifully researched and drawn expansion of the world we've come...

    Gives lots of background to the characters, places, things from the series. I like that many of the houses or things are real and historic. I did not realize how many characters were real figures in history. I love the Elizabethan era of history, sometimes so much so I feel I missed my...

    This is a companion book to the author's trilogy about Diana Bishop and Matthew de Clairmont. I shouldn't have to say it because it's obvious, but just in case: one really should only read this book AFTER having finished the trilogy because of major spoilers. The book contains th...

    All this book is, is retelling what the entire trilogy is about. There's about 2 hrs of just going over each character's name and what the names mean. Very boring. You must be a die hard fan of this trilogy to enjoy this and care about any of this. I was very disappointed. Not what I e...

    All this book is, is retelling what the entire trilogy is about. There's about 2 hrs of just going over each character's name and what the names mean. Very boring. You must be a die hard fan of this trilogy to enjoy this and care about any of this. I was very disappointed. Not what I e...

    The World of All Souls is the perfect companion to the All Souls Trilogy. It allows the reader to experience the All Souls universe in vivid technicolor! As a reader, you not only get to know some of the minute details of the characters, their backgrounds, and origins, you?ll also...

    I wasn?t even aware that this book was a thought until it popped up on my library?s website. I grabbed it thinking it was the new book coming out, didn?t pay that much attention, just knew it was in the series. Turns out this book is essentially the bible of the series. The autho...

    I received this as an ARC from Netgalley.com. First line: Dear Reader, Welcome?or welcome back?into a world of daemons, humans, vampires and witches, where a reluctant witch and a fifteen-hundred-year-old vampire discover the secrets left in a mysterious manuscript. Summary:...

    I love the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness so I was thrilled to get to read this preview of the guide to the series. It looks to be fascinating and engaging even though I only saw a few pages of it. I eagerly look forward to reading the complete work later this year. I am reviewi...

    As always love anything relating to Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. ...

    Brilliant! Must have for any DOW fans. ...

    This book is a compendium of information about the All Souls Trilogy. Some of the information can be found in the books, but much of it is only hinted at or not mentioned at all in the books. For fans of the All Souls world, this book is an excellent read as it gives you insights both ...

    Honestly, this was not for me. You SHOULD NOT read it while you are reading the series, because even if you wanted to look up a specific character you would be treated to spoilers for the series. Spoilers are throughout this and I can seriously only recommend you read it after you have...

    Excellent. Very informative. Beyond all the historical references, including photos, glossary, etc. one of the most enjoyable parts of the book were two small sections where the author gave you a quick short story from a place in the books where she could insert a little something inte...

    Great information and insight. I will use the book as a reference guide when I need to refresh myself about something in the All Souls Trilogy. ...

    Great book. A book that delves into the details in the All Souls series....insights, back history.....just a great book to accompany the series. The history of locations and characters.....it is hard to find the right words but this is a wonderful book for those that "live" the All Sou...

    I read bits here and there. But I don't think this is a book I'll finish straight through. It's an interesting reference. I read all the cut chapters/outtakes for books. There is one for DOW and one for SON. Unfortunately, nothing from BOL. I enjoyed those and the author notes. I t...

    Wow! Not an encyclopedia but a compendium of interesting information about the All Souls Trilogy. The drawings are fabulous and render the images from the books faithfully and creatively; truly the images are a joy to behold. Definitely a must for All Souls trilogy lovers. ...

    Enjoyable, though missing some things I really hoped to learn (e.g. all of Gallowglass's names--we know one of his names because one of the twins is partially named for him, but in his entry under full name it just says "Gallowglass de Clermont")--there are a few instances like that wh...

    I will come back to this book regularly, even just to find new reading suggestions ...

    The perfect tell all companion reader to the All Souls trilogy. This book has dictionary style lists of characters, places and events from the books. Lovers of this series will find the book invaluable and will go back and reread with new understanding. Illustrations of dress and place...

    I had to snap this beauty up right way, I did PreOrder it the minute I knew it was available thanks to DH's FB page, I did PreOrder the next book from her too, that name is so not coming to my mind, nuts!! too much info. in that brain-O of mine, LOL!! can not wait!! ... I love Deborah'...

    The format was a pleasant surprise- the various narrators, the author herself, the organization of the book, it?s all new to me; as a long time Harkness fan, it was not what I expected yet it turned out to be better than I expected. Harkness answers nearly every question a reader mig...

    More through and detailed than I could have ever hoped for. Just fantastic. ...

    A must-have for fans of the All Souls Trilogy! Filled with all the background (and more) to make the Trilogy's world come even more alive, it has history and fantasy and wonderful art. Not one's usual compendium, it's a beautifully researched and drawn expansion of the world we've come...

    Gives lots of background to the characters, places, things from the series. I like that many of the houses or things are real and historic. I did not realize how many characters were real figures in history. I love the Elizabethan era of history, sometimes so much so I feel I missed my...

    I love watching and reading "behind the scene" stuff so this was awesome! Lots of background information on the characters and the historical lore that Harkness pulled upon to make her series magical. Just wish I had the physical copy so I could see the illustrations! ...
