This author is devious as you read what you think is a run of the mill book, then it starts to get good and by the time you realize how good it is you cant put it down. I advise anyone who is reading it to make sure they are where they cannot be disturbed then they can really enjoy the story. I know I did.

Sounds a Bit Familiar

I rated this with 4 stars because I thought it really was a good book. I was thoroughly entertained. The first couple of chapters were a bit weighty, and difficult to get through because there was so much set up and world-building going on. But I finally slipped into the pacing of the story and found it to be a great ride.

I waffled between rating this 3 or 4 stars because, although there wasn't a werewolf to be found, in a few places it really had a TWILIGHT feel to it, which was disappointing to me. But, that aside, overall it was a great read. Harkness' writing style is easy and unencumbered and would be a great fit for fans of vampires, magic and old folk lore. I recommend DISCOVERY OF WITCHES as a good book to curl up with on some lonely weekend.
