Dark Shadows: Angelique's Descent a novel by Lara Parker

How Angelique Began, a book by Lara Parker

A Must for Dark Shadows Fans!

  • May 16, 2009
To all those fans who remember the classic 60's television program, here is a book that answers some of the perplexing questions from the earlier plotlines. Specifically, why would Barnabas Collins throw away an impending marriage to a desirable and beautiful society woman for what we thought was a night of passion in Martinique? What happened specifically between him and Angelique? How did Angelique come up with all those powers? What would lead her to be the precursor of Glenn Close's character in Fatal Attraction?

Ms. Lara Parker (who played to role of Angelique in the series) does a fairly surprising good job with what I assume is her first novel.

About this book


Two of the most popular Dark Shadows characters, Barnabas Collins and Angelique, were eternally bound by love and hate. Now, actress Lara Parker, Angelique herself, tells how it all began.

A passion born in ecstasy...

The dashing heir of a New England shipping magnate, Barnabas Collins captured the heart of the exquisite, young Angelique amidst the sensual beauty of Martinique, her island home. But Angelique's brief happiness is doomed when Barnabas cruelly deserts her and becomes engaged to another. Little, though, does Barnabas know of the evil his betrayal will unleash...

And destroyed by jealousy and betrayal

For Angelique is no ordinary woman. Raised in the mysterious black art of voodoo witchcraft, she has long ago pledged her soul to darkness and become immortal. Vowing to torment and destroy Barnabas, a vengeful Angelique damns him to eternal life as a vampire--a companion to accompany her forever. Little, though, does Angelique understand the depth of Barnabas's fury...

Vividly imagined, grippingly written, each Dark Shadows novel is filled with the eroticism, supernatural suspense, and spellbinding storytelling that has made this classic daytime serial a timeless hit.
