A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1)


Now an original series on Sundance Now and Shudder




Book one of the New York Times bestselling All Souls trilogy--"a wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter and Twilight" (People)

Deborah Harkness's sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches, brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.

Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, Shadow of Night, and concludes with The Book of Life. The story now comes alive in an incredibly lush eponymous TV series, starring Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four, Hacksaw Ridge) and Matthew Goode (Match Point, The Imitation Game). The show will premiere on January 17, 2019 on Sundance's new streaming platforms Sundance Now and Shudder.

DNF - 60% Eu não sei bem o que achar desse livro. Em alguns momentos, eu estava bem interessada e envolvida nele, e não acho que ele é de todo ruim. A mitologia de bruxas, vampiros e demônios que ele traz é bem interessante, os vários aspectos da trama - o mistério do Ashmole, por que as criaturas sobrenaturais estão minguando com os anos, o mistério da morte dos pais da Diana, tudo isso prendeu sim minha atenção e queria saber mais sobre tudo isso. Porém, o ritmo do livro é extremame... leia mais
