A Discovery of Witches
A Discovery of Witches is a inventive novel about witches, vampires, and demons. The heroine of the story is Diana Bishop, the last in the line of witch first killed in the Salem Witch Trials. While she wants nothing to do with magic, she uncovers a rare and bewitched manuscript in the Oxford library. Before she knows it Oxford is crawling with witches, vampires, and demons looking to get their hands on the manuscript. Diana meets a sexy and powerful vampire named Matthew who has appeared after the manuscript was discovered. Diana must sort through many conflicting stories and theories regarding the manuscript, her fellow witches, and her history. The characters in this book are amazingly developed. I really enjoyed Diana's hilarious and homosexual aunts who are her support though out this journey.
