|With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, Dark Shadows became one of the most popular daytime series of all time. Since first airing on ABC-TV from 1966-71, Dark Shadows has earned the reputation as being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in television history. The character of Barnabas Collins, a guilt-ridden 175 year-old vampire, brought the show tremendous success.|
In the mysterious world of parallel time, Barnabas is once again a vampire. Writer William H. Loomis discovers Barnabas' secret and traps him inside a chained coffin. Young Daniel Collins becomes convinced that his deceased mother named Angelique is coming back. Quentin Collins is stunned when Alexis Stokes, Angelique's identical twin sister, arrives.
Sabrina Stuart convinces everyone at Collinwood to participate in a seance to contact Angelique's spirit. She believes that someone at the seance murdered her. The ghost of Dameon Edwards starts haunting the mansion. Scientist Cyrus Longworth continues his laboratory experiments to separate the good and evil in man.
Upon drinking a potion, he transforms into the sinister John Yaeger and terrorizes barmaid Buffie Harrington. Housekeeper Julia Hoffman learns a dark and deadly secret. Maggie Collins suspects that her husband Quentin may have been responsible for Angelique's demise.
Editor's NoteThe chills continue in this Gothic soap opera of supernatural proportions, both in subject matter and popularity. Unfolding on the Collins estate in Massachusetts, the long-running series began with the arrival of Victoria Winters, a young governess who has come in search of her origins. What follows is the discovery of a family legacy that involves all manner of witches, vampires, werewolves, and other such beings, as well as familial drama and intrigue in the manner of more traditional soaps. In this volume, Cyrus Long pulls a Dr. Jekyll move and ingests one of his own potions, emerging as the evil John Yaeger. Daniel Collins believes his mother, the witch Angelique, is coming back, and Sabrina Stuart calls a seance at Collinswood to get in touch with Angelique's spirit. Meanwhile, Angelique's twin sister, Alexis, turns up unexpectedly, and Dameon Edwards's ghost takes up residence in the mansion.
