A richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together.

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's the only creature who can break its spell.

Reading Challenge

On the Back Burner

I am so super stoked to participate in my first ever Beat the Backlist challenge! Hosted by Novel Knight, the challenge consists of reading as many – or as few – backlist books you’d like in 2018. The only catch is – hence the word backlist – that all books read to count toward the challenge must have been published prior to 2018.
