Black Magic Woman

I can remember, when I was a kid watching Dark Shadows, I had a big crush on the witch Angelique, played by Lara Parker. I remember being very confused by why Barnabas kept passing her over for Josette and other women on the show. Having watched a few episodes featuring Angelique, I am officially renewing that crush. Oh sure, Angelique sold her soul to the devil and she murders and torments people, but just look at those eyes...

It's the eyes that get you every time.

Hi Charles
Have you read Lara Parker's gothic novel Angelique's Descent? It's fantanstic. A wonderfully written book and one of my favourites.

Sara, I haven't read the book but I've been eyeing it, and it's sequel, The Salem Branch, on the bookstore shelves. Since you enjoyed it, I'll pick it up and give it a read. Apparently a third volume, Wolf Moon Rising, is due out in October. Thanks for the recommendation.
