    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?"
    "Saccharine romance thinly disguised as Vampire"

    Story

    As a bodice ripper, this might be an okay book. As an interesting story line, it still might be just fine (witches and vampires do all sorts of interesting things). As a total story, it is horrible. The main characters are so inconsistent that they are unbelievable in terms of their actions. The main character (Dianna) is so dependent on her "man" that it is impossible to identify with her. Her man (the vampire) is so protective and controlling that even stereotyped hard core Republicans would be alarmed. The narrator is the only thing that saves this book. She is good, but she only had so much to work with.
