Episode 67 – Sol in Denouement

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.

Unbreakable.

Without beginning or end.

Deborah harkness, the book of life

Clovers.

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 chamomileandclovecast@gmail.com if you’ve got something to say about this book or ANYTHING ELSE.

It’s time to talk about Sol in Scorpio, and all things New Orleans and babies. Full disclosure, somewhere between New Orleans and Baby Town we did find ourselves to be, ahem, distracted from the conversation. What else is new?

Happy Sunday, Clovers.

It’s a gorgeous, clean, bright October morning at C&C East — I hope you’ve poured yourself a cup of whatever pleases you and that you’re enjoying your long weekend.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about the end of Sol in Libra — Chapters 27 and 28 of The Book of Life! In these chapters, Diana tracks down the last page of Ashmole 782 and returns to the Bodleian… only to run smack into the clutches of the world conflict. We’re talking about divinity and mythology, conflict structure, antagonism, and dachschunds (SO MANY DACHSCHUNDS) and we hope you enjoy it.

Happy new episode day!
