It begins with absence and desire

I learned about the "All souls" trilogy when I came across the series. I admit that I started watching the show for Ayisha Hart since witches, demons and vampires weren't the most original trop. However, the main idea seemed very interesting and even though I rarely read books I've watched on TV, "All Souls" found a place on my bookshelf. I've read some reviews before bying it and I was surprised to see that most reades were disappointed. I feared I'd be one of them but thankfully I'm the opposite. "A discovery of witches" left me breathless with all these complex yet likable characters and the well written story, of course. Diana Bishop, a fellow colleague - historian is a witch that refused to use her powers, mostly because she doesn't know that she posses every witchy power. Matthew de Clairmont, a predator - vampire and scientist gets close to that complicated creature in order to get his hands on a rare alchemy book. It wasn't a big surprise that they turned out star - crossed lovers, and maybe Matthew fell for her sooner than I would've liked but that was the only thing that made me frown. The rest was... magical. I like the historical references (of course) and I adored the fact that Matthew, Miriam and Marcus (I'll be calling them the 3 Ms) tried to give scientifical explanations about the supernatural world. They were conducting DNA tests to vampires, witches and deamons to find out why they exist and why they're different from one another and humans. That was very original and very 21st -century -like. I also enjoyed the fact that the author gave us equal stays in France and the witchy house in order to see the differences between the species. And I'd by lying if I said I don't want to live in a house that is alive and haunted. To sum up, it was a great book and a great start. It sure makes you excited about the next chapter and the moment when the alchemy book will come to Diana's hands and everything she already knows will turn into a mass knowledge about the unkown. Who knows, maybe a vampire and a witch can reproduse after all. And maybe there are more creatures out there...
