A Discover of Witches (All Souls Triology #1) by Deborah Harkness

A fabulous blend of fantasy, romance, thriller, suspense and historical fiction. Set in the modern day, the backdrop of the story jumps from England to France to New York. The characters are fabulous, varied, and intriguing, in that even the ‘invincible’ ones are flawed creatures. This book has taken the best aspects of stories like Twilight, and Harry Potter, and turned them into an addictive story, very much for adults. I loved everything about the book, and have already finished the second – I can’t wait for the third book in this trilogy to be released!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Novel Outline

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.

Debut novelist Deborah Harkness has crafted a mesmerizing and addictive read, equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense. Diana is a bold heroine who meets her equal in vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and gradually warms up to him as their alliance deepens into an intimacy that violates age-old taboos. This smart, sophisticated story harks back to the novels of Anne Rice, but it is as contemporary and sensual as the Twilight series-with an extra serving of historical realism.
