A Discovery of Witches: free exclusive chapter sampler by Deborah HarknessA latte-loving daemon?
A vampire who rather than needing to be invited in waits for a window to be left open?
A vampire who not only doesnt turn to a pile of ashes in sunlight but who liked to bask in its glow?
A vampire who along with daemons and witches, doing .... yoga?
Reading at times like a script for a spoof supernatural movie, at times its actually quite funny. Its just a shame that this isnt intentional and for the main part the novel takes itself too seriously.
A sort of Harry Potter/Twilight/Fifty Shades Of Grey hybrid. A witch, her parents the creme-de-la creme of their kind, orphaned at childhood and brought up by other family members? A mysterious, magical book? A vampire who spends considerable time watching a woman sleep unaware that he is there? A love affair that borders on the abusive? Sound familiar?
At least with Harry Potter and Twilight there is a certain honesty in that the reader knows what they are getting. Quite unlike A Discovery Of Witches which when it comes down to it is essentially just another vampire romance albeit one masquerading as a more intelligent read for grown-ups.
Given to me as a present along with the second book in the series (Shadow Of Night). Alas Ive been put off reading book two, an equally weighty novel, let alone buying book three (The Book Of Life).
