Is it ever good to keep a secret? Are secrets really lies in disguise? We discuss this and more in our Secrets in the All Souls Trilogy podcast. Come join us!
You can’t go more than about 25 pages in Deborah Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy without someone tripping over a secret—either one they kept or one they discovered or one they are being forced to maintain. The whole damn looking for Ashmole 782 is about trying to uncover the secret(s) that it holds for daemons, witches, and vampires. Keeping secrets never goes well, or at least almost never….so in this podcast, Secrets in the All Souls Trilogy, we’re taking a look at secrets and the trouble they cause, both in A Discovery of Witches and in real life.
Other Stuff You Should Know: The All Souls Discussion Group on Facebook is currently doing a Shadow of Night real-time read-along, and we are partnering with them to do giveaways during that multi-month event. We’ll be doing our giveaways during some of the full moons that occur during the read-along because, well, we’re witches and fans of the moon goddess in general and of the power that comes around the full moon, specifically.
We did our first Full Moon Magic giveaway when the read-along kicked off in November. We’ll be doing others in April and June so stay tuned by following us on our Facebook page and, of course, the All Souls Discussion Group page. Each giveaway will get bigger…
