Publisher Description

Book one of the New York Times-bestselling All Souls trilogy—"a wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter and Twilight” (People).
Look for the hit TV series “A Discovery of Witches,” streaming on AMC Plus, Sundance Now and Shudder. Season 2 premieres January 9, 2021! 

Deborah Harkness’s sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches, has brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.

Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, Shadow of Night, and concludes with The Book of Life.

A discovery of witches

A fun story. Little confusing at times but still kept me hooked. Can't wait for second book

Read this book for the second time, and realized that it’s really rather misogynistic. When you meet Diana, you meet someone who is purported to be strong, intelligent, and independent. By the end of the book she is vapid, weak (in contrast to the males in this book), and insipid. So sad, because her character had such potential. If you are looking for a paranormal romance-the equivalent to an adult version of twilight-you’ve found it.
