A Discovery of Witches tells the story of Diana, the last of the powerful Bishop witches, who wants nothing to do with magic. Instead she chooses to study alchemy at Oxford. When she finds an enchanted manuscript during her research, daemons, witches, and vampires are drawn to Diana and the power the manuscript could bring. Among those looking for Diana and the manuscript is Matthew Clairmont, a vampire interested both in the manuscript and Diana herself.

The Dark Tide: Swirling copper waves encircle the text on a black background. A blood red moon waxes and wanes in the background too.

The Dark Tide is a book with excellent characters, amazing storytelling, and a plot that'll make you never want to put it down. In a setting where mundane people and magical events collide, once you start reading you won't be able to stop.

Apr 28, 2014

Nathan is the seventeen-year-old son of a White Witch and a Black Witch, and in the viciously divided community of English witches that makes him an outcast.  Questioned, brutalized and eventually imprisoned, the Council will stop at nothing to make sure that Nathan's half-Black Magic side doesn't corrupt the rest of the underground magic community.  It doesn't help that his father is one of the most violent Black Witches in the world, responsible for more deaths than any other living witch.
