A Discovery of Witches, Author Deborah Harkness

A woman who ignores her innate magical abilities and a vampire who seeks the scientific answer to the existence of witches, daemons and vampires. From their first meeting in Oxford’s Bodleian Library Diana and Matthew or inexplicably drawn to one another. Despite the prejudices and taboos they find common ground and forge an alliance of sorts. Unexpectedly they find themselves falling in love.

I found myself searching for answers in every paragraph and page of this book. Will Diana and Matthew ignore Centuries of prejudices and taboos? Will Diana embrace her magical abilities? Should she choose to will she be able to control the magic, or will the magic control her? Will Matthew and Diana find acceptance among the non humans? Or will they have to fight for their right to be together?

I guess I’ll have to wait until I can read Book two of the All Souls Trilogy to find the answers I’m searching for, I’ll probably end of finding a few more that need answering too.
