A friend let me borrow a book when she was done reading it. She told me not to give up - she didn't really get hooked until about page 75. Well --- I was hooked somewhere between pages 2 & 3! This is the first book in a trilogy - "A Discovery of Witches" in the 'All Souls Trilogy'. I highly recommend this book. It is about witches, vampires and daemons. But not like 'Twilight' or other juvenile books. These are more grown-up books with a lot of historical references included.
I'm just starting book two - "The Shadow of Night" and Book three comes out in July!
I'm looking forward to some good summer reading. I did find out last night that you can 'preorder' "The Book of Life" for your Kindle or other e-reader. On its release date - it will be downloaded to your device.
Oh - and while I was browsing to get the pictures of the book covers - I saw that Warner Brothers has bought the rights to make a movie of 'Discovery of Witches'.
