This was my first read of a Shivers Box Set and I really liked all the stories it contained.

Darkening Around Me, is set in the Pacific Northwest and is dark and haunting with The Thornleigh Bride having a hold over all who live there. Samantha has gone to have a clay likeness made of her by Miles O'Keefe, but no one is allowed to stay longer than a week for fear of what the ghost can do.

Legacy of Darkness is a Gothic romance set amongst the stunning scenery of a rugged Cornish coast. Lucy Alleyn

Darkening Around Me by Barbara J. Hancock
2.5 Stars
The gothic scenes were really well written and creepy as hell, but the plot lacked cohesion and felt more like set peices. The romance was more "tell" than "show" and unbelievable. The hero was really boring, lacking the danger and moral ambiguity of great gothic heroes. I did enjoy the gothic parts very much and I think the story would have benefited from about 50-100 more pages to flesh things out.

I just finished reading the first story in the complimentary copy of the Shivers box set I received. Gothic is not the usual type of story I read but once I started the first story "Darkening Around Me" I was hooked. I even started reading it aloud to myself. The descriptive an atmospheric elements are captivating. If all the stories are as intriguing and captivating as the first, then this set is a winner.
