A Discovery of Witches Quotes

I'm still not comfortable around magic, especially after what happened to my parents. I still find it... I just find it difficult.

Diana

Once the world was full of wonders, but it belongs to humans now. We, creatures, have all but disappeared. Demons, vampires, and witches hiding in plain sight, fearful of discovery, ill at ease even with each other. But, as my father used to say, in every ending, there is a new beginning.

Matthew
