Why did I love this book?
This book had me at the outset with an old, magical manuscript that stirs up the otherworldly beings and binds a witch and a vampire together—I love that witches get their due here! Descended from a long line of witches, Diana Bishop is the only one who can break the spell, despite her resistance to the task. Harkness made her writing debut with this book, and it has all the magic, strong female characters, and beautiful prose to keep me enthralled. Great show too!
