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. The Salem Branch "Inspired by the s 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.

The flashback sequence plays like a loose sequel to the story and is the novel's centerpiece.
I suspect it's also going to be the most troublesome section for some readers. Edith Collins, for example, died twice on the show. Her second death was either a product of editorial oversight, or was collateral damage created by the show's many timeslips. Parker had something she wanted to say with the characters and valued her story more than she did fan service. She gets it better than Tim Burton, who loves the show without really understanding how it works.
She gets it better than the various writers who have worked on the tie-in novels, comics and audio dramas over the years, even though some of those products have had moments of brilliance. It can be a little unfocused at times as its ensemble cast fights among each other for prominence in the story. Sep 18, K. Morrison rated it it was amazing. Old friends and new, vile fiends. The living, the dead, the undead, and the immortal all existing together in the strange tapestry known as Collinwood. No one is as he or she seems, and secrets are as palpable and elusive as the shadows that lurk in every corner.
He blames Antoinette, who in turn blames her daughter, Jackie, for the disappearance of this most important piece of Old friends and new, vile fiends. He blames Antoinette, who in turn blames her daughter, Jackie, for the disappearance of this most important piece of artwork. But the only clue is a vision that Jackie has of its location, and it is not very clear. Meanwhile, other denizens of the paranormal are seeping out of the foundation of the house.

Barnabas, who has returned to the world of the undead, now has a companion: Julia Hoffman, the physician who had made him human again, and in the process turned the curse upon herself. Barnabas still yearns for Antoinette, and will do anything to have her. He despises Julia for her thoughtless decision to enter into his world of misery. His decisions almost costs him his existence. David and Jackie pursue their own ideas, about themselves, each other, and the portrait. When a short ride in a mysterious green Duisenberg causes them to travel back in time to the s, David finds that many of his forebears had dark secrets of their own.
He also finds—a second portrait. But will it do the magic that is needed to restore Quentin to a normal life? Who is hiding what? Can anyone be trusted? What is the relationship between Elizabeth, the matriarch of the family, and Quentin? What is the shameful secret intimated by Dr.
Blair, who ramrods his way into Collinwood, seeking answers and fame? And always, like the faraway beat of a drum in the night: Parker has done a beautiful job bringing these characters back to life. The nuances and gestures are exactly what I remember—made more clear by watching the series recently—and even the placement of furniture and room appointments are spot-on.
Any child who was ever a victim of bullying would definitely be delighted by how Jackie solves the problem of the boys who follow her through the woods, their purposes far more sinister than mere taunting. That was a lot of fun. There are the original characters, of course, but Ms. Parker has brought us new villains to boo and new heroes to cheer. Perhaps you are… And, just like the series, it ended all too soon. Parker, I hope you have another story on its way. I miss the world of Collinwood already. In this latest novel written by the woman who played Angelique in the o Cross-posted from: In this latest novel written by the woman who played Angelique in the original series we find that teenager David has fallen madly in love.
The girl he has fallen in love with is living in the old house with her mother. What could possibly be wrong with that set up especially when neither Jackie nor her mother seem quite right? Barnabas, unhappy with his marriage to Julia, is lurking in the background watching over his family, mainly from afar. Quentin wants Blair there , as he promises to be able to hold a seance and as we know those lead to time travel. Someone does end up back in time — right where Quentin wanted to end up — just not Quentin. As I said, the craziness that is Dark Shadows… it is all here.
Witches, vampires, werewolves, seances, time travel, magical paintings, family members in love with each other, curses, deaths, near deaths, possession. This series is a bit over the top with sooooo much crazy stuff happening though that it only feels a little off, not enough for me to be truly bothered.

I received this book at no cost in order to review it. Sep 01, Brad Middleton rated it liked it. In she wrote her first novel, Dark Shadows: Parker followed this with Dark Shadows: The Salem Branch Tor, , which was also reissued last year. Although the author definitely does justice to the characters and setting of the television series, the story features some elements that seem too out of place for Dark Shadows--and her writing style leaves something to be desired.

Add in Barnabas Collins' vampire, and the residents This is actress and author Lara Parker's third book based on characters in the gothic soap, Dark Shadows. Add in Barnabas Collins' vampire, and the residents of Collinsport have some real problems on their hands. Other subplots include young David's relationship with the mysterious Jackie, who may or may not be a witch, seances and time travel, sending David and Jackie back to the s, where David learns some of the secrets his family has kept for decades.
All in all, a wonderful return to Collinwood for us fans of the show. Nov 07, Stephen Osborne rated it it was ok. Overly written and frankly dull. The characters often don't act like they did on the show, and I find it hard to believe that Elizabeth was a film star a la Joan Bennett and this is the first we've heard of it. Jan 07, Sarah Crawford rated it it was ok. There's a whole lot going on in this book and that may be its main problem. There's just too much going on. David, 16, is in love with a girl named Jackie. Jackie is partially Angelique. It's sort of complicated Barnabas gets savaged by a wolf.
Julia ends up a vampire. The portrait of Quentin that keeps him young is destroyed, painted anew, unsigned, and worked with. A Dusenberg car takes David and Jackie back to No explanation how, of course.

We find out about how nasty one of the Collins was back then. A woman named Antoinette falls under Barnabas' power.

Massive destruction of a greenhouse. A Blair that is a mad scientist who is into vivisection. And that's not all. I think you can see that there is just too much going on. I think a book about Quentin's origin and past could have been doing including the portion of this book and the hunt for the artwork but Blair and Julia both could have easily been dropped.
Even David and Jackie could have been dropped. Those things put together could have made a separate book. May 12, Lisa Marie rated it liked it. First off I do really enjoy these books by Lara Parker.

But sadly, this book just didn't hold my attention and I simply read in a skimming fashion through most of it. I was hoping to learn more about Quentin much like the first book was dedicated to Angelique but I just didn't get that. I was very annoyed by the paranormal doctor character perhaps it is from so many show characters like him these days with his more sadistic side than having any true interest or belief in the paranormal - ugh, First off I do really enjoy these books by Lara Parker.

I was very annoyed by the paranormal doctor character perhaps it is from so many show characters like him these days with his more sadistic side than having any true interest or belief in the paranormal - ugh, his character was just so unnecessary. Aug 19, Larry Sampson rated it it was amazing. Fun book for fans of the old 60's soap opera horror series Dark Shadows. It's like meeting old friends again. You can hear the voices of each character as you read the novel. The author Lara Parker played Angelique on the series so she knows these characters and how to make them come back to life for the fans.
Aug 21, Julie rated it really liked it. The "Dorian Gray" type portrait of Quentin Collins has gone missing. This portrait keeps Quentin forever young, but also prevents him from turning into a werewolf during the full moon. Barnabas Collins is a vampire once again. However, he soon discovers he is no match more the werewolf side of Quentin Collins.
David Collins, is in love with Jackie, who lives at the "old house" with her mother.
Jackie is the reincarnation of the notorious witch, Angelique. Parker forgotten that she, herself, played Angelique in the 20th Century? Differently a story worth reading or listening to. Lara Parker pushed the limits on this one. Brilliantly written book by one of the stars of the original TV show Dark Shadows Lara Parker who played the amazing and mesmerisingly eyed witch Angelique.
