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. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!!!! In an earlier post I was only about a quarter way through the book and I was already in love with it. OMG I finished it and I want more! Warning… It ends in a way where you will immediately need to start book 2. I hope that book 2 doesn’t end the same way because book 3 isn’t out yet. This book is great for all ages.
