Scholar Diana Bishop fiercely denies her witching powers until vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont seeks her help with an enchanted manuscript. From the stillness of Oxford’s Bodleian Library to a turreted French castle, narrator Jennifer Ikeda embarks on a magical journey. Her narration is quietly charming. Often her voice holds a hushed rapture that reflects the magical world uncovered by Diana and Matthew. Medieval Occitan French and other accents make for a memorable listening experience. Ikeda conveys Diana’s panic at her emerging powers and her forbidden love for Matthew. Through the narration, Matthew’s polished façade transforms to reveal a fierce knight determined to defend his mate. This epic tale of the origins of magic will make listeners wish they could conjure the sequel. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
