A Discovery of Witches

 I picked up the audio book, A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness.  It kept popping up in reviews and magazines so I thought I give it a try.  I was not really expecting much.  What I found was a beautifully written love story.  This story has witches, vampires and daemons as the main focus of the book, not usually my thing, but I could not stop listening to it.  The story is absolutely addictive, it is full of magic and romance and history, and I did not want it to end.  Deborah has created a world where it all makes perfect sense.  This is Deborah Harkness’s debut novel and she hit it just right.  I am very happy this is going to be a trilogy and I can’t wait until the next installment, Shadow of Night comes out July 2012.  This book is a keeper, one that is going on my “favorites” list.  For more information and updates check out Deborah Harkness’s webpage.  I would be very remiss if I did not mention Jennifer Ikeda, who read the book, she did a fantastic job!
