Die Historikerin Diana Bishop öffnet in Bodley"s Library, Oxford, ein alchemistisches Manuskript - und damit die Tür zu einer Welt voll Magie. Diana ist eine Hexe, doch schon beim Tode ihrer Eltern wurde ihr klar, dass Angst viel mächtiger ist als Zauberei. Dunkle Kreaturen sammeln sich nun in Oxford, unter ihnen der enigmatische Matthew Clairmont, zu dem sich Diana seltsam hingezogen fühlt. Die Balance des Friedens gerät ins Wanken.
The phenomenal international bestseller and the first volume in the enthralling All SOULS trilogy, preceding SHADOW OF NIGHT and THE BOOK OF LIFE.
Fall under the spell of Diana and Matthew in the stunning first volume of the No.1 internationally bestsellling ALL SOULS trilogy.

A world of witches, daemons and vampires. A manuscript which holds the secrets of their past and the key to their future. Diana and Matthew - the forbidden love at the heart of it.

When historian Diana Bishop opens an alchemical manuscript in the Bodleian Library, it's an unwelcome intrusion of magic into her carefully ordered life. Though Diana is a witch of impeccable lineage, the violent death of her parents while she was still a child convinced her that human fear is more potent than any witchcraft. Now Diana has unwittingly exposed herself to a world she's kept at bay for years; one of powerful witches, creative, destructive daemons and long-lived vampires. Sensing the significance of Diana's discovery, the creatures gather in Oxford, among them the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont, a vampire genticist. Diana is inexplicably drawn to Matthew and, in a shadowy world of half-truths and old enmities, ties herself to him without fully understanding the ancient line they are crossing. As they begin to unlock the secrets of the manuscript and their feelings for each other deepen, so the fragile balance of peace unravels...
