A Witchy Review

I recently read a pretty good book, A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness. I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to ordering the second book. If you are looking for a novel with witches, vampires, and daemons, this is a great book. It is a fun book in the fact that the story is good, and the characters rich, but it is a drama, not a comedy.

The main character is having internal struggles and realizes that she needs to embrace who she is, while on top of that, falling in love with her enemy. It has all the conflict and action you are looking for when your forte is urban fantasy. I enjoyed the setting, Oxford, and I enjoyed the European details and history she brings into the story. Then, off to France. The details and style rich and satisfying. 

I normally don't read a lot of urban fantasy, usually prefer medieval, but I'm glad I downloaded this one. So if you're looking for a new read to take you away from the mundane, then download this series. The second book is her newest, but I have to read the first one before I read the second. I prefer to know everything about the main character first. I believe if you like vampires, and of course witches, you will like this.

Now on to announcements. Robin Calkins won the draw for Marilyn Rice's giveaway  Congratulations Robin! I hope you enjoy her book! Get back to me and let me know what you thought. 

I know today was supposed to be a new guest, Michelle Benavidez, but unfortunately, she was unable to get back to me. She has had a few medical issues. I hope that she is feeling better and have her on here next week. In the mean time, thank you for reading my blog posts and I hope that all of you have a great weekend, and don't forget to read a good book!


Take care, Lisa
