A Discovery of Witches Book Summary

"A wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter and Twilight."
-People


In a sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches became the "it" book of early 2011, bringing Deborah Harkness into the spotlight and galvanizing fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and the descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript 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 story of magic and suspense. And the story continues in Book Two, Shadow of Night.

A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness Book Reviews

  • Wonderful! (Msvaldez80)

    It really is a great book, it’s like a grown up Harry Potter!
  • Couldn't Put It Down (NoppNopp)

    Enthralling
  • A Discovery of Witches (Skipit76237856)

    This was a great read very well written just loved it.
  • Slow starting off, but ending is great! (Whit0409)

    Booked was very detailed. Almost hard to get the the story with all the details. But then it all ties together where you needed to know about these details. The second book in the trilogy is 5 stars. Great imagination and love the characters.
  • Compelling for sure, but... (Doctorbrooke)

    ...the author seems to have read the Twilight series a few two many times and taken it as vampire gospel. Apparently it is historically accurate that there are good vampires which abstain from killing good people and who fall desperately in love at a moment's notice.
  • πŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘πŸΏ (Ginga12)

    This was the most amazing trilogy I have ever read
  • So boring... (JaredLambert)

    It is just so boring. The characters and the setting, hell even the creatures are boring. She makes demons boring. Which is pretty impressive in itself.
  • Amazing book (Madd 311)

    This book will keep u on ur toes when u think I got other plot figured out it changes this book is a great mix of vampire and witches and even daemons a must read for anyone who likes the super natural
  • Fantastic Through Every Page (awesometastical)

    I could not put this down for a full weekend (poor neglected fam), but for good reason! Its been a long while since a book interested me this much, and I know it will be a book I read again. I would 100% recommend anyone into magical fantasy books read this.
  • Amazing book (Goofy redneck)

    Started out a little slow but the more and more I read the more I became part of the story myself imagining I was there with Matthew and Diana
