A Discovery of Witches

A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy, #1)A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dette er en bok helt etter mitt hjerte. Med kjærlighet, magi, spenning og masse trivia. Jeg leste dag og natt i hvert eneste ledige øyeblikk. Deborah Harkness har gjort en strålende jobb med å flette sin brede historiekunnskap med det overnaturlige. Jeg fikk denne anbefalt av en hyggelig dame på bokhandelen som sa at dette var Twilight for voksne og jeg kan på en måte være litt enig. Det denne boken utkonkurrerer Twilight sagaen med er at den har så kompleks og "stor" bakgrunnshistorie. Jeg gleder meg allerede til neste bind i trilogien kommer neste år!

"When historian Diana Bishop opens a bewitched alchemical manuscript in Oxford?s Bodleian Library it represents an unwelcome intrusion of magic into her carefully ordinary life. Though descended from a long line of witches, she is determined to remain untouched by her family?s legacy. She banishes the manuscript to the stacks, but Diana finds it impossible to hold the world of magic at bay any longer.

For witches are not the only otherworldly creatures living alongside humans. There are also creative, destructive daemons and long-lived vampires who become interested in the witch?s discovery. They believe that the manuscript contains important clues about the past and the future, and want to know how Diana Bishop has been able to get her hands on the elusive volume.

Chief among the creatures who gather around Diana is vampire Matthew Clairmont, a geneticist with a passion for Darwin. Together, Diana and Matthew embark on a journey to understand the manuscript?s secrets. But the relationship that develops between the ages-old vampire and the spellbound witch threatens to unravel the fragile peace that has long existed between creatures and humans?and will certainly transform Diana?s world as well.

Hei og velkommen til meg. Med denne bloggen håper jeg å få stilnet min uhelbredelige skrivekløe (utdannet journalist) med å skrive om det som opptar meg...og det er ikke så rent lite. Jeg er gift med en fantastisk mann som fyller livet mitt med hverdagsluksus. Kontakt: linda.gjerde@hotmail.com
