Book 1: ALL SOULS TRILOGY

Deep in the stacks of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

Comments: This book had yuck in it, but it was longish and thus didn't feel overwhelming. Still it was enough to almost find the garbage bin. I really enjoyed the romance in this book. I liked the hero though he was a vampire. I liked Diane too, she was a great heroine. Also the book had great pacing and was well developed in the places it needed to be. However I couldn't recommend it for its morality.
