Description
Book one of the New York Times -bestselling All Souls trilogy--"a wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter and Twilight " ( People ). Now "[a] hot show that's like Twilight meets Outlander " ( Thrillist ) airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, as well as streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder. 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. Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, Shadow of Night , and concludes with The Book of Life .
