Veteran police chief Eli Gallagher doesn't ask for much, but he does insist that his officers uphold the "serve" part of "serve and protect". Conscientious young Deputy Stan Leach takes Eli's moto to heart, maintaining a high standard of personal accountability. When Eli's long-distance boyfriend, Gilbert Nees, telephones from Philadelphia, Eli thinks he intends to further cement their relationship. Unfortunately, Gilbert's news is anything but good. But Eli doesn't have time to wallow, because a violent act results in murder in the small town of Morristown.

I liked the characters and the way the story was going but I feel like the ending and character development was rushed at the end. But at least everything was wrapped up neatly. Overall a good listen, K.C. Has a great voice.

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.

Jennifer Ikeda was wonderful to listen to. I had a distinct image of every character in my head, because she managed to changed her inflection or voice or accent enough to embody the characters.

When a witch and a vampire realize that they really can trust one another and be friends.

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

Matthew

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A Discovery of Witches is Only the Beginning....

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for the next installment - I really hope that Jennifer Ikeda is the narrator once again.
