I enjoyed the academic aspect to it and the idea that a book can change the world. The light romance was good. Good character development for the most part. Book leaves you wanting to know what happens next. ( )

Short Review: Perfect Book For Adults Who Loved Twilight But Felt Kinda Guilty About It.

I enjoyed this book but it was a VERY slow read. While I was curious to see where the story went, which made me want to read it every night, it wasn't an easy read so I found myself needing breaks. There's a lot of history talk (the lead character is a Historian) and even a lot of science talk (she studies alchemy and the male lead studies genetics/evolution) so I found myself needing breaks. I couldn't read it for long chunks of time without putting it down, like I can some books.

HOWEVER...it's a great love story. If you loved the Twilight books and kinda hated yourself for it? This book is perfect for you. It has the same type of love story but a lot more intellectual fodder between to make you feel less guilty about reading it.

I would probably give this a 3.5 star rating if I could because I did "Really Like It" which is FOUR stars, but it took me so long to read, I feel like I should knock it a few points for that. ( )

This book is amazing. It is an exciting page turner that draws you in, makes you want more, and leaves you unable to do anything but read the next book in the series. I highly recommend reading it. ( )

Not only does Diana start off studying in the Bodleian in Oxford (which I’ve done, squee!), but she eventually returns home to her family’s old farmhouse in Madison in upstate NY (20 miles from our 200-year-old farmhouse—though our house is not nearly as alive or opinionated). Includes witches, like Diana’s family, vampires, and daemons, old manuscripts with secrets, old vampire families with secrets, some unpleasant enemies, and a remarkably likeable bunch of allies. ( )

"With books about fictional witches, it’s all too easy to fall back on tongue-in-cheek descriptors like “enchanting” or “spellbinding,” but both adjectives aptly describe the superbly entertaining saga Harkness has crafted. This is a riveting tale full of romance and danger that will have you on the edge of your seat, yet its chief strength lies in the wonderfully rich and ingenious mythology underlying the story. Entwining strands of science and history, Harkness creates a fresh explanation for how such creatures could arise that is so credible, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself this is fiction."

As will be obvious by now, this is a very silly novel. Characters and relationships are stereotyped. The historical background is a total pudding. The prose is terrible. And yet, the ideas have just enough suction, somehow, to present an undemanding reader with some nice frissons. I liked, for example, the way Diana tries to sublimate her magic powers in running and rowing and doing yoga – at a mixed vampire-witch-daemonic yoga class, participants struggle not to levitate during their vinyasas. And I liked the way Matthew and Diana smell to each other like Jo Malone candles: Diana is "horehound, frankincense, lady's mantle", Matthew is "cinnamon and clove".
 
"a thoroughly grown-up novel packed with gorgeous historical detail...Harkness writes with thrilling gusto about the magical world. Whether she's describing a yoga class for witches, daemons, and vampires or Diana's benignly haunted house, it's a treat to suspend disbelief. ... As the mysteries started to unravel, the pages turned faster, almost as if on their own. By the most satisfying end, Harkness had made me a believer.
 
"a romantic, erudite, and suspenseful first novel by Deborah Harkness. The first in a planned trilogy, it sets up blood drinkers and spell weavers as enemies for eternity in a feud as old as the Crusades; the duo confront social disapproval and intolerance as they elude evildoers and puzzle out enigmas throughout history. ...Harkness attends to every scholarly and emotional detail with whimsy, sensuality, and humor.
 
The protagonist is a witch. Her beau is a vampire. If you accept the argument that we’ve seen entirely too many of both kinds of characters in contemporary fiction, then you’re not alone. Yet, though Harkness seems to be arriving very late to a party that one hopes will soon break up, her debut novel has its merits; she writes well, for one thing, and, as a historian at the University of Southern California, she has a scholarly bent that plays out effectively here.
