A Discovery Of Witches: Plot
A brilliant historian Diana Bishop is a witch who refuses her own heritage. However, one day she unexpectedly calls up an ancient, enchanted composition from the Bodleian Library of Oxford. It was the one that was thought by the creatures to be lost and could answer the mysteries of their existence. At that instance, Diana finds out that she is hurdled deep into a treacherous mystery and into the path of the cryptic geneticist and vampire, Matthew Clairmont. Matthew is driven to solve the looming threat of the extinction of creatures. But their agreement to find the book before it falls into the wrong hands along with their deepening relationship, threatens to violate the age-old prohibitions and shake the fragile peace that exists between the species.
