A Discovery of Witches by Deborah E. Harkness

I’m always on the lookout for the “next Harry Potter” and while this book isn’t quite it, I’m going to recommend it for people who like a mix of fantasy and history in their novels. It’s the story of a Professor who is also a witch, her discovery of an ancient and magic book at Oxford University, and the different supernatural individuals who want to help her and fight her as she learns about the book and its powers.  The sequel, Shadow of Night, is coming out this July, so if you get hooked on the story in A Discovery of Witches you’ll have more to delight you this summer.
