A Discovery of Witches

I picked this book up last fall from my library.

It is an incredibly creative novel about a witch, a vampire, and a coveted secret manuscript that pulls them together.  Debut novelist Harkness presents an  addictive read that is part history, part magic, and part mystery.  I like the interesting way that Harkness plays with the mythologies.  (Of course, I’ve been known to watch awful movies just to see a new treatment of vampire lore.)  Don’t get in a hurry like some bloggers we know.  (ahem.) This is the first in a new trilogy.  3 a.m. is an awfully late (or early?) and inconvenient time to figure that out.

Good news?  The second installment is coming out this Summer.
