The fantasy novel A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, reviewed by GeekMom at its release, has become a major international success. The story follows an academic who specializes in the history of science. Her research leads her to an enchanted alchemical manuscript so powerful that it may spark a war between witches, vampires, and daemons. To keep the peace, she must use her own witches’ skills and accept the help of a powerful vampire whose long past echoes the history she’s been studying.
This book is the first in a series called the All Souls Trilogy. Warner Brothers acquired screen rights to the entire trilogy. The second book, Shadow of Night, is due out next summer.
