Dark Shadows continues with the full measure of spellbinding suspense and gripping storytelling that made the original television series a timeless hit.

Freed from his vampire curse, Barnabas Collins is ready to embark on a new life and marriage with his savior, the virtuous Dr. Julia Hoffman. But when Antoinette, a beautiful flower child with a shocking resemblance to the immortal witch Angelique, rebuilds the Old House, his past returns to haunt him. Discovering a grisly corpse in the basement--where his old casket once lay--Barnabas realizes another vampire has invaded his domain. His fight to protect his family from this new threat will take Barnabas back through time to an evil moment in America's history: the corrupt witch trials of old Salem.

A slow book to read, it does retain the feeling of the original show, and the words used by Barnabas Collins sounds like the words and cadence of Jonathan Frid. It has an interesting section of sub-plot in the problems of a vampire becomin human again, which is someting original to me. Read full review
