Countdown to All Souls Con – Our Favorite Things about the All Souls Trilogy – Day Twenty-Five – The World-Building

Vadim Sherbakov

We really can’t say enough about the beauty of the world-building in the All Souls Trilogy. For Day Twenty-Five, it’s worth acknowledging how much work goes into creating a dynamic, colorful, coherent world for your characters to inhabit. We love the All Souls Trilogy for so many reasons — but one of them is definitely that it has such an incredibly strong and solid sense of place. The opening of a Discovery of Witches places you firmly, deeply, and beautifully in the midst of a melancholy, mysterious autumn in Oxford. Shadow of Night takes you deep into the magical world of 16th century England, full of witches, wearhs, and firedrakes. Book of Life conjures steamy summers in upstate New York, the sophisticated townhouses of London, and the sultry shadows of New Orleans. The genius of the All Souls Trilogy is the layering of the magical onto the practical — the definition of good genre fantasy.
