A Discovery of Witches

Deep in the stacks of the library at Oxford, Diana Bishop cannot
reach one of the works on the highest shelf. And she calls for it. And it comes to her. Matthew Clairmont, a distinguished scholar observes this. And so begins the tumble from a quiet researcher's academic life to a tumultuous brilliant love affair between an extraordinary witch and a brilliant, beautiful vampire. Their communities forbid their love and dangerous connection. Their families are shocked. Diana and Matthew search for the secrets to a mysterious manuscript called Ashmole 782, the spells of which have been bound for centuries and may hold the answer they have all been waiting for. Hundreds of years of history unfolds as Diana and Matthew build understanding and trust to try and scientifically explain the difference and similarities between their two races. Suspenseful and romantic, this is a great beach read that is quite unputdownable. It is as long as it is delicious and I warn you if you get hooked you will be dreaming of magic spells and very busy this summer as it is the first of a trilogy. #perfectsummerread
