A Discovery of Witches *Now a major Sky original production*

THE NUMBER ONE INTERNATIONAL AND SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. A Discovery of Witches is the first in the must-have, must-read ALL SOULS trilogy.

It begins with absence and desire. It begins with blood and fear. It begins with a discovery of witches.

Fall under the spell of Diana and Matthew in the stunning first volume of the No.1 internationally bestselling ALL SOULS trilogy.

A world of witches, daemons and vampires.

A manuscript which holds the secrets of their past and the key to their future.

Diana and Matthew - the forbidden love at the heart of it.

When historian Diana Bishop opens an alchemical manuscript in the Bodleian Library, it's an unwelcome intrusion of magic into her carefully ordered life. Though Diana is a witch of impeccable lineage, the violent death of her parents while she was still a child convinced her that human fear is more potent than any witchcraft. Now Diana has unwittingly exposed herself to a world she's kept at bay for years; one of powerful witches, creative, destructive daemons and long-lived vampires.

Sensing the significance of Diana's discovery, the creatures gather in Oxford, among them the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont, a vampire genticist.

Diana is inexplicably drawn to Matthew and, in a shadowy world of half-truths and old enmities, ties herself to him without fully understanding the ancient line they are crossing. As they begin to unlock the secrets of the manuscript and their feelings for each other deepen, so the fragile balance of peace unravels...

    This book kept me hooked all the way though, it starts a little slow but before I was five chapters in, I was reading until there was nothing more to read ! I recommend this book, it is a beautiful romance filled with enchanting history and characters that have so many unique qualities. Just give it a try.

    I noticed this book when it was featured on iTunes for free and, like many others couldn't stop reading it. I went on to download the rest of the trilogy which are equally enjoyable and then immediately re-read all three.
  • Loved it!

    By Kezzybean
    I absolutely loved reading this. It sucked me right in and I just couldn't put it down. Some of the terminology Diana uses sometimes threw me abit but you get used to it. Very exciting and spicy romance. Can't wait to read the next one now.
  • Bewitching!

    By MSH Wellbeing
    Described by other reviewer as the adult hybrid of Twilight & Potter, this book is that and more. Sophisticated writing that fuses the scholarly disciplines of history, medicine, alchemy, eugenics, evolutionary theory and genetics in a compelling and riveting read that it's hard to put down!
