My Halloween Read 2011.
Research historian Diana Bishop is a witch from a long line of esteemed witches, and yet she refuses to use her skills. Whilst researching ancient documents in Oxford's Bodleian Library, she unwittingly unleashes the power of Ashmole782 an ancient alchemical manuscript. But once unleashed, the catalytic effect of this ancient document will turn Diana's well ordered life upside down.
Meticulously researched, Deborah Harkness has created a world within a world, which is believable and utterly compelling to read.
I loved it, and can't wait until book two is published in 2012.
Book Two is entitled Shadow of Night , due to be published in 2012.
