A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sometimes scholars should be more careful: Youthful researcher Diana Bishop briefly consults an medieval alchemical manuscript; then, after jotting down a few notes, sends it back to its prison in the stacks. Unfortunately for Diana, her quick dabbling has unleashed a long suppressed curse—and now only she can break the spell. Carefully researched, this debut novel will appeal to fans of historical novel infused with strong paranormal elements.
This is book one of a trilogy and I just fell in love with the story line and characters. Did I think I would like a book about witches and vampires? Not really. While the part about witches and vampires is a factor, this is really just a love story. Book two comes out in 2012 and I am looking forward to seeing how the story will progress.
