Description

This next chapter in the "Dark Shadows" saga is back in a new edition, with the full measure of eroticism, spellbinding suspense, and gripping storytelling that made the original television series a timeless hit. The roots of the Collins family's power and wealth go deep...Barnabas Collins is ready to embark on a new life and marriage with his saviour, the virtuous Dr. Julia Hoffman. But when Antoinette, a beautiful sixties 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 realises 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 itself.
