A Discovery of Witches

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

This is book #1 of The All Souls Trilogy. I read this series a few years ago, and was recently reminded of it when hearing someone suggest the series as their “go-to” Fall read.  I remembered that I liked the books, but as I picked them up again, I was reminded that I loved them!  Re-reading them is like coming home to an old friend.

The Premise: Humans, Witches, Demons and Vampires – Oh my!  We have an Oxford historian witch, Diana Bishop.  She spends her time in the research area of the campus library, looking at old texts on alchemy.  She has a weird experience with an old book and soon she has caught the attention of some less than friendly witches, a few odd demons and the handsome and charming vampire, Matthew Clairmont. It’s everything there is to love about witches and vampires!

I especially enjoyed the yoga classes for creatures (no humans invited) and the wine tasting!!  Who wouldn’t want to experience the wine cellar of a vampire?  With libraries, wine, yoga and some witchy-ness…it’s like it’s written just for me!!

Occult fiction at it’s best, it’s Twilight for adults.
