More than that, the ouroboros symbolized our partnership. Matthew and I were an alchemical marriage of vampire and witch, death and life, sun and moon. That combination of opposites created something finer and more precious than either of us could ever have been separately.
We were the tenth knot.
Without beginning or end.Deborah harkness, the book of life
We can’t believe that the day has finally come, but it’s time to close the last cover on Deb Harkness’s The Book of Life and close out our chapter discussion of the All Souls Trilogy. Hours and hours of planning and note-taking, laughing, crying, recording, and editing has come to an end. In this episode, we’re talking about Chapters 40 and 41 of the Book of Life, including the narrative conceit of blood rage, Diana’s character arc, and an unexpected (and apparently VERBOTEN) reference to Grease 2.
We managed to get through it without getting super emotional, but this feels momentous. As we close out the trilogy (and 2019), we want to make sure you know how blessed we are to be a part of this fandom and to have shared this incredibly detailed and magically expansive world with you. Thank you for your comments and e-mails, your tweets and hugs, your thought-provoking and inspiring engagement with this text. What an honor it’s been to go on this journey with you.
There’s still time to e-mail us your questions and comments for both our Book of Life and trilogy wrap discussions, so please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ve got something to say about this book or ANYTHING ELSE.
If you’d like, you can also follow us on Twitter @chamomilenclove or join our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers. You can also support us by visiting our Redbubble store, our Patreon page, or simply by leaving a rating and review on Facebook, Podchaser, or the podcast app of your choice.
Thank you for making this so much fun. We love you.
With love, from cover to cover,
Cait and Jen
