My new discovery – A Discovery of Witches

Just a quick note in case you didn’t read a my previous post — for a limited time, you can get She Wore Mourning, book #1 in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries series for free. Pick it up while you have the chance.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am well into Deborah Harkness’s A Discovery of Witches, the first book in the All Souls Trilogy. I don’t think I’ve read anything else by this author, but I am certainly enjoying it.

A paranormal romantic suspense story about Diana, a witch with mysterious powers, and an ancient vampire. Well, you can guess what is going to happen. It is well-done, with lots of suspense and deep character building. It’s fun and mysterious, and I’m still trying to unwind all of the secrets and find out what is going on and how they are going to solve their problems.

Oh, and there has been some interesting DNA science thrown into the mix, which has been well-managed and presented. I love the mix of history, science, and fantasy.

A mild shock made me withdraw my fingers quickly, but not quickly enough. The tingling traveled up my arms, lifting my skin into tiny goose pimples, then spread across my shoulders tensing the muscles in my back and neck. 

Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches

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.
