If supernatural is your thing, this book covers all the bases. It has vampires, ghosts, demons, witchcraft - but that's not really what makes it interesting. Lots of people write about those things. What makes Darkening Dream unique is its heroine - I mean, who thinks to put a young Jewish woman at the heart of a vampire novel? The idea injects a dose of freshness to a fairly stale genre and the inclusion of Jewish mysticism into such a tale provides some much-needed elements of surprise. My only problem with the book is that the end of it kind of left me hanging. Otherwise though, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
