Editorial review

Amazon easiest e-books of the Month, February 2011: all of it begins with a misplaced guyuscript, a reluctant witch, and 1,500-yr-old vampire. Dr. Diana Bishop has a in point of fact just right reason why for refusing to do magic: she is a direct descendant of the first woman done within the Salem Witch Trials, and her parents counseled her be discreet approximately her skills sooner than they have been murdered, presumably for having "an excessive amount of energy." So it is simply by accident that Diana unlocks an enchanted long-misplaced guyuscript (a ebook that each one method of supernatural creatures imagine to carry the story of all origins and the secret of immortality) at the Bodleian Library at Oxford, and unearths herself in a race to prevent an interspecies struggle. A glowing debut written by way of a historian and self-proclaimed oenophile, A Discovery of Witches is heady mix of historical past and magic, mythology, and love (cue the aforementioned vampire!), making for a luxurious, intoxicating, one-sitting read. --Daphne Durham
