Review of Deborah Harkness' new novel, "A Discovery of Witches"

Seldom do I pick up a novel and immediately dive into the imagination of the story.  This book is a rare exception to that rule as A Discovery of Witches captivated and transported me into an excellently crafted tale of a powerful witch discovering who she really was.

The numerous references to ancient writing within the story is well researched, obvious by the author's expert use of these texts to reinforce her plot.  The romance weaved between witch and vampire intially put this reader on guard for a possible repeat of another well-known vampire story.  However, this was not to be the case and Deborah Harkeness is to be commended for creating her characters richly with their own unique personalities, conflicts and conquests. 

An enjoyable read that does not present even momentary drag in the flow of the story, A Discovery of Witches is definitely recommended for the avid paranormal romance enthusiast's summer novel list.

This author highly recommends A Discovery of Witches and hopes Deborah Harkness has plans for a sequel.
