Title: A Discovery of Witches
Series: All Souls Trilogy #1
Author: Deborah Harkness
Deep in the stacks of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.
I was really excited to read this after it was recommended to me by so many people!
A witch and a vampire…….
‘What a complicated, delicate business it was going to be to love him.’
I actually thought that wasn’t true, it’s not how I saw it at all. For the 2 of them it wasn’t complicated. They loved each other. It was simple as that. It was glorious….well despite all the trouble that followed them!
But maaaaan they both had crazy families! The Bishop family house is somewhere I’d love to live and Matthew’s Mum, Ysabeau was also someone I loved after initially I thought I wouldn’t!
So they have found their purpose and the journey begins……..
Can’t wait to read book 2!
