Loved this, like a supernatural Da Vinci Code!

Similar to the Da Vinci Code, this book has scholars, secrets, Knights Templar, origin stories and all the intrigue you can handle, but it also has Witches, Vampires and Daemons. It is intellectually stimulating and well written. I loved the entire ride and all the kooky characters.

“Matthew?” I croaked, swiveling my head to the side to look for him. His face appeared.
“Yes, my darling?”
“Where did the pain go?”
“It’s magic,” he said, attempting a lopsided grin for my benefit.
“Morphine,” I said slowly, remembering the list of drugs he’d given to Marthe.
“That’s what I said. Everyone who has ever been in pain knows that morphine and magic are the same.

9.0% "I am 5 chapters in and loving this book so far. Also it is kind of cool knowing already that a TV series made of it, so I can picture Teresa Palmer as Diana Bishop and Matthew Goode as Matthew Clairmont. I love the mystery of the book she finds, the fact that Diana is a Witch but never wanted to be and never honed her powers. Also that she wanted to be a scholar and do it on her own without any help from witchcraft."
