A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
Deep in the heart of Oxford's Bodleian Library, Diana Bishop -- a young scholar and the descendant of witches -- unearths an enchanted alchemical manuscript. Wanting nothing to do with sorcery, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery has set a fantastical underworld stirring, and soon a horde of daemons, witches, and other creatures descends upon the library. Among them is the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont, a vampire with a keen interest in the book. Equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense, A Discovery of Witches is a mesmerizing and addictive tale of passion and obsession that reveals the closely guarded secrets of an enchanted world.

I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me a bit of Jennifer Lee Carrell's Kate Stanley books, but with a more fantastical storyline. In fact, just when you thought it couldn't get more fantastical, it does. Yet she correlates the fantastical with science in such a way that you just go "Wow, never thought of that." This is one where I can't wait for the next installment as I fell in love with the all the great characters, and love to hate the bad guys.
This was a great book. Held my attention to the last page. I can't wait for a new book in this series if it is to be one. I hope so.
