    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.

    haesel says: "Where was this woman's editor?"
    "so-so. a book written like a film."

    Would you try another book from Deborah Harkness and/or Jennifer Ikeda?

    There is little depth to the story or the characters. I was disappointed. The reading had typical TV genre inflection. The story itself can be told in 10 minutes. All of the filler was descriptive, not insightful. I can see why people like it but not my style.
