Book Review by Bonnie Sabatini
This book is a richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together. If you like Historical Fiction, Vampires, Witches, Daemons, a mystery AND a good love story… then you’ll love this book!
I first read this book years ago, but I still recommend it to people. There are now 4 books in this series and a TV Series on the Sundance Channel. I recently finished the 4th book, “Times Convert” and remembered why I fell in love with the series in the first place all over again. The character development is so well done and the History that is woven into the story feels palpable.
In this book, “The Discovery of Witches,” the main character, 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. Discover the origins of the underworld and unlock the secrets lurking in the shadows with this book. Enjoy!
