Summary "Brilliant historian Diana Bishop ... is a witch denying her heritage. But when she unexpectedly calls up an ancient, bewitched manuscript from Oxford's Bodleian Library, she finds herself thrown into the heart of a dangerous mystery--and into the path of enigmatic geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont ... . Matthew is driven to solve the looming threat of magical creatures' decline and believes that the lost manuscript could answer the mysteries of their existence. Their unlikely alliance to find the book before it falls into the wrong hands--and their deepening relationship--threatens to violate age-old taboos and shake the fragile peace that exists between the species."-- Container.
