A Discovery of Witches
- A Novel
- By: Deborah Harkness
- Narrated by: Jennifer Ikeda
- Length: 23 hrs and 59 mins
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.
Twilight. But they are in their 30s.

LOVED this book; sorrowful about the wait #2
A slightly slow start, then revved up to high speed and just wouldn't let me stop for anything (meals, the bathroom....). Listened to this book entranced and just loved it. How awful when it suddenly ended and I realized I must wait for MONTHS to hear the rest of the tale.

Tears of the Giraffe Review
The reader has marvelous pronunciation and a lovely accent; the story rolls along pleasantly. Made me wish for the next edition...
