The first all-new Dark Shadows novel in years, written by Lara Parker, one of the stars of the cult classic TV show!
When a portrait is lost that has maintained Quentin Collins’s youthful appearance for over a century—and has also kept his werewolf curse at bay—Quentin begins to dread the full moon.
Meanwhile, David, the sixteen-year-old heir to the Collins fortune, has fallen in love with Jacqueline, a young girl living at the Old House who is the reincarnation of Angelique. David and Jacqueline are swept back in time to the prohibition era of the Twenties, where David uncovers the dark secrets of the Collins family history.
Most threatening of all, Dr. Nathanial Blair, an expert in the paranormal, has come to Collinwood because he suspects they are harboring a vampire. Fortunately, Barnabas Collins has returned to his coffin after a disastrous flirtation with life as a human. Nevertheless, what Blair discovers places the entire Collins family in jeopardy.
Praise for Dark Shadows: The Salem Branch:
“Inspired by the 1970s television show Dark Shadows, Parker writes a layered story that catalogues not only Collins’s marital misgivings after falling for mysterious flower child Antoinette but also a large subplot dealing with one of Collins’s ancestors during the infamous Salem witch trials.”
“Fans of Dark Shadows have long awaited this second book by Parker. Parker has done her research. She takes us effortlessly from Collinsport in 1971 to Salem Village in 1692 and does a wonderful job of capturing the history of both periods. Her spellbinding plot and descriptive prose will please those who love a supernatural romance. She has captured the characters, the dialogue, and the spirit of the show perfectly.” —RT Book Reviews
