    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.

    Story

    I agree with some of the earlier reviews:
    Twilight for adults. Sappy. Romantic fiction.
    But what teed me off is that this is 24 hours of set up for a series.
    Asa King and Rice fan I was disappointed. As a Christie fan I was livid.
    In all that time the mystery doesn't get solved. Poirot we need you.
    I resented being sucked into a series without warning.
    Series are great as long as each book will stand on its own. This one does not.
