    Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Would you listen to A Discovery of Witches again? Why?

    Yes. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it has set the foundation for the following book. To me, this book not only speaks to an individual's struggle to understand oneself but also looks at our differences with others. How love and understanding can bridge our differences even when we don't necessarily want to. To me it shows our flaws, vulnerabilities and compassion and at times humor. I particularly enjoyed references to history and how this is expanded on in the second book in the trilogy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I had two favorite characters; Diana and Matthew. Not hard to imagine since they are the main characters in the story. I can identify with Diana trying to understand herself and at the same time explore her budding relationship with Matthew. Matthew who has lived for centuries knows what he wants and is assertive in pursuing it as well as being protective.


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Ikeda – was your favorite?

    I loved Isabo in this story. She is righteous in her beliefs and makes no apology for herself or her actions. I loved the accents Jennifer performs for all of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    I've thoroughly enjoyed this book and it has made me look forward to the following books in the trilogy. I would recommend this book for reading.
