Falcon will risk everything to save her, even if it means forsaking his king.

I’ve been in a book slump lately, and some ladies in a fan club of Diana Gabaldon’s book, Outlander, suggested A Discovery of Witches.   In fact, this book was suggested a lot.  I was pretty excited about everyone’s eagerness about it so I picked it up at Barnes and Noble and got started.

This book is about a witch named Diana, set in modern-day time.  She doesn’t want to be a witch; in fact she basically refuses to use her powers at all.  She’s a historian, a doctor in that subject in fact, and her daily routine is doing research at the library.  One particular book there soon changes her life.  Diana then meets a vampire, Matthew, and they become involved.

A forbidden relationship, magical powers, a vampire.  Sounds good right?  I don’t know guys; this book just didn’t do it for me.  At the beginning, I was enthusiastic, and actually got lost in the book, which made me more excited because I was like, finally, a good book!  But then I just got bored.  I know this is the first one in a series and I’m wondering if the series gets better?

Something trivial that bothered me was the main characters’ names.  I know Diana was used for a reason, but Matthew just seemed out of place for the vampire.  Also, there was only one suspenseful part in the book that left me wanting more, and in a book that’s over 500 pages, I want to want to know what happens more often!

It was good, just not awesome, and I’m looking for that next book that I can rave about.   So if this sounds up your alley, go ahead and I bet you’ll like it. Even for its length of 500 pages, it’s surprisingly a quick read.

Also, it ends on sort of a cliffhanger into the next book, which is already out on shelves.  I’m on the fence, because the ending was really good…..what to do, what to do…


My Rating:  3 out of 5 stars
