I stepped away from writing fantasy and paranormal for a while because my muse had shifted gears. Now it has pivoted yet again, and I'm back in familiar territory. The book I recently finished was a paranormal romance, and the one I'm currently writing is a fantasy romance.
While I'm writing in these genres, I tend to watch a lot of television series and movies that fit as well. Unsurprisingly, I've usually get addicted to one, two, or more. Like I did with A Discovery of Witches.
Folks, this series is based upon the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness, and can I just say it's fabulous? Seriously, if you love witches and vampires, you should check this series out. It's short, with only three seasons (or series as it's called in the UK) that total 25 episodes. So it's a quick binge, which is good because it's difficult to stop at just one or two episodes.
Matthew Goode plays the vampire, Dr. Matthew Clairmont (or de Claremont), and Teresa Palmer plays Dr. Diana Bishop, a witch. Their love is forbidden by a covenant that was established 900 years ago, but that doesn't stop them from falling in love. And their chemistry just leaps off the screen.
This show is rich in history and magic, introduces a different take on vampires, highlights the importance of equality, and is about love, friendship, grief, guilt, restoration, and so much more.
I knew the end was coming to the series this year, but I've still been secretly hoping for a fourth season or a movie, mini-series, something to continue Matthew and Diana's journey. If you haven't watched it already, watch it. Seriously. It's that good. You can stream it on AMC and Sundance or buy the individual seasons on Amazon. Believe me when I tell you it's worth every cent.
