A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
This is a story about Diana, a witch who has been told that she has great power, but who chose never to use it. She has kicked magic out of her life and is content with her research job at the university. Everything changes the day she requests the manuscript Ashmole 782 from the library for her research. Soon, more witches, vampires and daemons than she has ever seen before are coming out of the woodwork and are converging around her.
I really enjoyed this adult novel! It has a great cast of characters and an element of mystery that keeps you guessing and trying to figure out what will happen next. It is also part of a trilogy, so there is more to read if you love it like I did 🙂
Shadow of Night – Book 2 – is already out for your enjoyment!
The Book of Life – Book 3 – comes out July 15th!
