I Am Hooked on A Discovery of Witches!
I will admit it here, I am hooked! I was excited to read A Discovery of Witches from the minute I heard the title. I have read many authors that have wrote books about witches. This one got me hook, line and sinker! Deborah Harkness writing was wonderful. It kept you wanting to turn the page after page. I carried this book around with me everywhere, because I just could not put it down.
I felt very in tune with Diana, as she tries to put the past of her family aside and live her own life, how she sees how it should go. And then she stumbles upon a man, Matthew, which makes her breath quake. Yet Matthew is not just some ordinary guy, he is a vampire. This just makes the book all the more interesting. Further on in the book, you read on how the dynamics of the witches, vampires and daemons are. There is a mystery to solve that takes on all different shapes and sizes and it makes you lose track of time as you get lost in the book.
If you are a Anne Rice fan, you will love this book. I have a long history on reading about vampires and witches thanks to Anne Rice and this book almost felt like she was the one writing it. I really do hope that Deborah will be writing another book to finish this one off. She leaves you hanging in the end and I so badly wanted more. This is truly a good book to pick up and take an afternoon to read it.
