    Historikeren Diana Bishop, der er af hekseslægt, forsker i alkymistiske skrifter og falder over et fortryllet manuskript i Bodleian Library i Oxford.

Hvad hun ikke ved er, at den gamle alkymistiske tekst Ashmole 782 har været forsvundet i århundreder og tiltrækker sig opmærksomhed fra andre væsner.
