This book (which will become a trilogy) has been recommended vehemently by quite a few readers. I must say… I am convinced. I will read this. ASAP! Like… this week! Also I just found out, that after only one book, it will possibly be made into a movie! “Warner Brothers optioned A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES and its sequels in July”
As per Rebecca:
“For those of you who haven’t read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, Go and buy it now!!! Such a fantastic book. The first in the All Souls series and the next one due to be released in summer ’12. Its kind of a grown up Twilight, but better! And I never thought I would hear myself say that about any book!! Move over Edward Cullen, Matthew Clairmont is THE vampire :)”
As per Danette:
“Deborah Harkness – A Discovery of Witches. She is a new author, this is her first book so have to wait for the others (which we all hate)… but its a great read!!”
and Brandy told me:
“My newest love is A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. Wow! I would describe as supernatural meets Outlander.”
About book #1:
A richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together.
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.
