Teaser Tuesday: 16th October 2018

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.

This week my teaser comes from A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, which is the first book in the All Souls trilogy. I finished this at the weekend and while it’s a little on the long side I really enjoyed it. The fact I’ve now read it also means I can binge watch the TV show 🙂

My Teaser

‘A little book can hold a big secret – one that might change the world. You’re a witch. You know words have power. And if your vampire knew the secret, he wouldn’t need you.

loc 1209 A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

BlurbA Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy, #1)

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.
