Product Description

Product Description

Diana Bishop est la dernière d'une longue lignée de sorcières, mais elle a renoncé dpuis longtemps à son héritage familial pour privilégier ses recherches universitaires, une vie simple et ordinaire. Jusqu'au jour où elle emprunte un manuscrit alchimique : l'Ashmole 782. Elle ignore alors qu'elle vient de réveiller un ancien et terrible secret, et que tous - démons, sorcières et vampires - le convoitent ardemment. Parmi eux, Matthew Clairmont, un vampire aussi redoutable qu'énigmatique. Un tueur, lui a-t-on dit. Diana se retrouve très vite au coeur de la toumente, entre un manuscrit maudit et un amour impossible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to devour and to savour 24 July 2012
By ClaudeD - Published on
This is the kind of books people adore and hate at the same time. I adored it; I had a hard time put it down. I hated it; it would not let me take my time with it, to savour the style, the plot, the delicacy of the descriptions and the wonderful balance between action and contemplation. This book is splendid. It reminds me of Donna Tarth for its writing. The plot and the "four species" society has nothing to envy to Anne Rice's vampires series (I think I even noticed a reference to that when she describes how Matthew put some things in order in New Orleans). It has the complexity of "the Historian", "the eight" and the sweetness of "Rebecca". Like Proust, this book brings tastes to your mouth and scents to your nostrils.

My only reproach is that the last part (which takes place in the US) is slower paced than the other two (in Oxford and France).

You need to read this book, and fall under its spell.
