About this item

Deborah Harkness makes a captivating debut with A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES, the first in a proposed trilogy. Scholar Diana Bishop studies chemistry--but rather than cutting edge techniques, Diana's specialty is the science of the 1600s. Perhaps her interest in alchemy stems from her lineage, although Diana tries to ignore the witch-blood coursing in her veins. When she discovers a bewitched manuscript, however, she can suppress the magic no longer.
Discovering a magical manuscript in Oxford's library, scholar Diana Bishop, a descendant of witches who has rejected her heritage, inadvertently unleashes a fantastical underworld of daemons, witches and vampires whose activities center around an enchanted treasure.
