A Discovery of Witches is the story of Diana, an American witch in England, who tries to ignore her powers and live life as a normal human. However, when she inadvertently summons a magical tome that has been lost for centuries she attracts the attention of witches, vampires, and daemons--and such a gathering of magical creatures starts to attract human attention as well. One vampire in particular starts paying special attention to Diana, but she soon realizes he's a friend, not a foe, and all her beliefs about magic and supernatural creatures may be wrong. But witches and vampires are not supposed to be friends--so this starts a whole new mess of trouble...
An enjoyable romp; good vacation read. First in a trilogy.

Some of the characters are annoying because they have gotten themselves in some stupid messes, but the Shakespeare references are fun and you do come to care for the characters and hope they turn their lives around. Good read overall, nice ending.
