I briefly saw the recommendation for "A Discovery of Witches" and decided it was worth the one credit it cost. Little did I imagine what treasure was in store for me. Most books I read or listen to are just a good story, something that briefly occupies your mind and time in a pleasurable way. Rarely are there books that sweep you up in the arc of the story and puts the characters in your heart and mind in such a way that when you can tear yourself away from the story you find yourself thinking about the characters while you cook dinner or go about your daily life. This is that kind of book. I am thankful to Ms. Harkness for imagining such a wonderful richly written story. It's a grown-up book. If you are looking for gratuitous sex it's not there. It reminds of the way they used to make movies where you used your imagination to fill in the blanks instead of having it spelled out in front of you with graphic detail. Most books I read I can compare to junk food, a small bite of pleasure and then gone. This wondrous book is like a 10 course meal spread in front of you. I only wish it had not ended. I hate it that I cannot find any information as to when the next in the planned trilogy will be out. But I will be waiting......it's worth it. Thank you again Ms. Harkness
Yes, i have read this whole series on kindle and it's even better to listen to it on audible. I like the main character and her story flows very quickly. I just want to know when the rest of her series will be out on audible. Because this book ended in quite a cliff hanger
Watching how the main character evolves and adapts to circumstances way beyond her control
When a book has a good narrator I am never really aware of them. That's how good Traci is
The last paragraph !
Anyone interested in a good series with vampires, other supernatural characters, a strong female lead and a little romance mixed in will like this series.
