Disclaimer: I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.
I was wasn’t alive yet to watch the series when it was first run. I have, however, seen it many times in reruns throughout the years. Plus I absolutely loved the remake with the ever sexy Ben Cross as Barnabas.
Even though I had not read the first two by author/actress Lara Parker, I did thoroughly enjoy this book. I loved being able to revisit the old characters that I knew from the two versions of the TV series. Plus she introduced a host of new characters that fit into the world of Collinswood so seamlessly.
The book carries on with the same feel that the original series had. There are areas that are somewhat campy like the old show and other areas that are just downright eerie feeling. Lara Parker (who originally played Angelique in the series) really knows how to describe the inhabitants of Collinswood in great depth. The characters seemed to pop off the page.
This is one book that I didn’t want to end. Hopefully, there will be more in this series.
