A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1) by Deborah Harkness – 579 pages
Debut novelist Harkness has crafted a mesmerizing and addictive read, equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense–a richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together.
My Review: 4.5 stars
In The Discovery Of Witches, never did 600 pages go by so fast! A great story filled with humans, witches, daemons and vampires. A book that contains suspense, romance, time-travel and friendship. A current day novel with humor, great characters, romance and fantasy. This is the first of the trilogy and this author has a lot to live up to in her next book!!! P.S. Book 2 is planned for a July, 2012 publication, woo hoo!
Quotes I liked:

-“As fast as I can tell there are only two emotions that keep the world spinning year after year…One is fear. The other is desire.”
-“Yes, I see that you are behaving like a prince but that doesn’t mean you won’t behave like a devil at the first opportunity.”
