Description: Deep in the stacks of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, Diana Bishop—a young scholar and the descendant of witches—unearths an enchanted alchemical manuscript. Wanting nothing to do with sorcery, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery has set a fantastical underworld stirring, and soon a horde of daemons, witches, and other creatures descend upon the library. Among them is the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont, a vampire with a keen interest in the book. Equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense, A Discovery of Witches is a mesmerizing tale of passion and obsession that reveals the closely guarded secrets of an enchanted world.
