The phenomenal international bestseller and the first volume in the enthralling All Souls Trilogy, preceding Shadow of Night and the Book of Life. Soon to Be a Major TV Series.

Now a major Sky original production


The Number One International and Sunday Times Bestseller. A Discovery of Witches is the first in the must-have, must-read All Souls trilogy.

It begins with absence and desire. It begins with blood and fear. It begins with a discovery of witches.

Diana Bishop, a young scholar and descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she must navigate with a vampire, Matthew Clairmont.

This manuscript, Ashmole 782, holds the secrets of their past . . . and the key to their future.

About the Author

Deborah Harkness is a professor of history at USC, specializing in science and medicine in early modern Europe. She is the author most recently of The Jewel House (Yale, 2007), based on her ground-breaking work on how science was practiced in Elizabethan London. (And she really did once find a missing manuscript in the Bodleian Library!)
