Eine Liebe, stärker als das Leben selbst ... Diana Bishop ist Historikerin mit Leib und Seele. Dass in ihr zudem das Blut eines uralten Hexengeschlechts fließt, versucht sie im Alltag mit aller Kraft zu ignorieren. Doch als Diana in der altehrwürdigen Bodleian-Bibliothek in Oxford ein magisches Manuskript in die Hände fällt, kann sie ihre Herkunft nicht länger verleugnen: Hexen, Dämonen und Vampire heften sich an ihre Fersen, um ihr das geheime Wissen zu entlocken – wenn nötig mit Gewalt. Hilfe erfährt Diana ausgerechnet von Matthew Clairmont, Naturwissenschaftler, 1500 Jahre alter Vampir – und der Mann, der Diana bald schon mehr bedeuten wird als ihr eigenes Leben ... Ein mitreißender, wundervoll erzählter Roman über Magie, Abenteuer und Romantik.

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...

Historically, what do you see as the relationship between science and religion or mysticism? In college, I had a wonderful professor who taught a class on these subjects. To kick off the class, he asked us, 'How do you know what you think you know?' I've spent the last quarter century trying to answer that question. Because the world is a mysterious place and our relationship to it is not always clear, people have often turned to science, faith, and magic for answers. They help people find responses to the questions of, who am I and why am I here? Diana is an appealing heroine, determined, accomplished, and yet aware of her own weaknesses. In what ways, if any, does Diana reflect your own experience or personality? There are some similarities - Diana is also a historian of science, also interested in the history of alchemy, and shares some of my passions (including television cooking programs, tea, and rowing). Really, all the characters have some element of me in them. I think that's how authors create imaginary people who nevertheless feel real. The rest of Diana's character comes from a combination of qualities I admire in others, wish fulfilment, and my completion of the following statement: 'Wouldn't it be great if a heroine in a book was . . .

Amerika, Anfang der achtziger Jahre, ein College an der Ostküste. Madeleine Hanna, begeisterte Leserin von Roland Barthes, schreibt eine literaturwissenschaftliche Arbeit über die «Liebeshandlung» viktorianischer Romane. Während sie über den uralten Beweggründen des menschlichen Herzens brütet, bricht das wirkliche Leben in Gestalt zweier junger Männer über sie herein. Leonard Bankhead, charismatischer Einzelgänger mit scheinbar unerschöpflichem Elan, taucht Tabak kauend in einem Semiotik-Seminar auf, und schon bald verstrickt sich Madeleine in eine erotisch und intellektuell aufgeladene Beziehung. Zur selben Zeit lässt sich ihr alter Freund Mitchell Grammaticus wieder blicken, besessen von dem Gedanken, Madeleine sei für ihn bestimmt und er für sie. Wenig später, den Collegeabschluss in der Tasche, werden alle drei gezwungen, vieles in neuem Licht zu sehen. Leonard und Madeleine ziehen in die malerische Dünenlandschaft von Cape Cod; Mitchell, in Gedanken oft bei Madeleine, reist mit einem Rucksack voller Bücher über christliche Mystik bis nach Indien, stellt sich den Fragen nach dem Sinn des Lebens, der Existenz Gottes und dem, was Liebe ist. Gibt es die großen Liebesgeschichten des 19. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr, heute, in Zeiten von sexueller Freiheit, Eheverträgen, Scheidungen? Indem Jeffrey Eugenides eine totgeglaubte Tradition erneuert, meldet er sich als einer der bedeutendsten Autoren der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur zurück.

Quentin muss die sieben goldenen Schlüssel finden, um nicht nur Fillory sondern alle magischen Welten und damit die Welt selbst zu retten. Quentin und seine Freunde, Julia, Janet und Eliot, sind nach Fillory zurückgekehrt, um in dieser magischen Welt als Könige und Königinnen zu leben. Aber schon bald wird Quentin dieser so ausgeglichenen und unveränderlichen Welt überdrüssig – er will das Abenteuer und er will sich nützlich machen. Als die Außeninsel ihre Steuern nicht bezahlt, nimmt er das zum Anlass, sich dorthin auf die Reise zu machen. Er hat ein uraltes Segelschiff gefunden, dass er aufwendig restaurieren lässt und sticht schließlich mit Julia und seinen Freunden in See. Doch was sie nicht wissen, ist, dass Julia sich auf einen gefährlichen Handel mit einer Gruppe abtrünniger Magier eingelassen hat. Sie erhält außergewöhnliche Kräfte, büßt dafür aber ihre Menschlichkeit ein. Und diese Magier haben zudem die alten Götter heraufbeschworen, die die magischen Welten zerstören wollen. Nur wenn Quentin und seine Freunde die sieben goldenen Schlüssel finden, können sie die Welt retten. Eine fantastische Suche beginnt, die die Freunde von Fillory über Chesterton, Massachusetts, Venedig und die Jenseitsinsel bis ans Ende der Welt führt.
