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)

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.

There is more! Time's Convert (All Souls Universe, #1) by Deborah Harkness will be out in September. I don't think Diana is a main character but Marcus and Phoebe will be so Diana will be around for sure.

Deanie Nelder | 1067 comments At first I was confused, then I realized I read the first book as a non-buddy read last month. But I'll comment...

Did anyone see that "A Discovery of Witches" was a clue on Jeopardy? The category was TV shows based on books by female authors. None of the contestants knew it, but I did :)

I recorded but haven't had a chance to watch any of the episodes from this season yet (maybe this weekend!). I'll keep an eye out for that question!
