really a great book ~ long and I thought it would be slow, but it was surprising in keeping you glued to over 500 pages.

I loved this book and can't wait for the second one to come out. In the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, Diana Bishop calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Diana is descended from a distinguished line of witches, but Diana wants nothing to do with magic; so she banishes the book back to the stacks. But her discovery has already set things into motion--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 one who can break its spell. A combination of fantasy, historical fiction, romance and thriller--this is definitely one to read. 5 out of 5.
