A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
Vampires, witches and daemons, oh my! This book has all of those fanatical elements–a grown-up cross between Harry Potter and the Twilight series.

She comes across a mysterious text that has supposedly been missing for centuries. This text catches the eye of many creatures on campus, including vampire Matthew Clairmont. But Matthew is drawn to Diana for more than just this magical manuscript and he ends up being her protector. Can romance between a vampire and a witch be possible?
