Our tale dances through time, ensnaring us in the lives of Matthew de Clermont, a centuries-old vampire and Diana Bishop, a spellbound historian and a weaver witch, whose love is the core that holds the fragments of history together. But, the heart of this tale is Matthew’s transformation from a mortal man to a creature of the night. Once a man named Matthew Roydon, this enigmatic being’s journey to immortality is intertwined with the love, turmoil, and history that shape him into the vampire that Diana falls in love with.

In parallel, we follow the tribulations of Diana, who is pregnant with twins. Her struggle to embrace her heritage and powers as a witch while forging an unbreakable bond with Matthew and his vampire family, the de Clermonts, is portrayed with sublime finesse. Not to mention her endeavor to find acceptance among the daemons, witches, and vampires that populate this mystical universe.

As we traverse the contours of history, we meet Marcus Whitmore, Matthew’s vampire son, who was once a young man on the brink of death during the American Revolution. He is inexorably woven into the fabric of the story as he wrestles with the haunting shadows of his past, and the new love he finds with Phoebe Taylor, a bright-eyed and quick-witted Sotheby’s employee. Phoebe’s enraptured and willing plunge into the world of the supernatural, as she transitions into a vampire, reflects a mirror to Marcus’ own transformation.

From the elegant salons of France in the 18th century, where Matthew, now mingling with the likes of playwright Marlowe and Queen Elizabeth, finds himself torn between duty and love, to the rolling hills of New England where Diana must harness her powers and protect her growing family, Time’s Convert ebbs and flows through the rivers of time.

It is with the harmonious convergence of characters such as Ysabeau, Matthew’s fierce and protective vampire mother; Gallowglass, the loyal, battle-hardened nephew; and the enigmatic daemons and witches that Deborah Harkness ensnares our senses and ensconces us in a world we never want to leave.

Drenched in history, brimming with the supernatural, and heart-achingly centered around the many facets of love, Time’s Convert is an elixir that, once tasted, leaves you yearning for more. As Saskia Maarleveld’s voice, like an ancient whisper from the past, carries the echo of the ages, we find ourselves entangled, enchanted, and irrevocably in love with the tapestry woven by Deborah Harkness. Magic and ancient history painted A Discovery of Witches and The Book of Life, this phenomena is used by the author in this classic creation too.
