It is the turbulent 1960’s in an uncertain world, with civil rights, women’s rights, war protesters, free love, drugs and nuclear threat lying over the heads of everyone. In this chaotic atmosphere there are those who are trying to bring sanity back. Diana Chilton is dealing with her own internal chaos as a powerful witch recovering from a Great Working gone wrong, an encounter with the Fairie world, and a newly turned vampire. About the only thing that has not changed is her single-minded commitment to making the world a better place. Returning to her Boston home, she reconnects with the magical community and joins a coven of four with the same goals–or so it seems. After years in the making, she discovers that one of them, Jack, has his own plans and those plans threaten to destroy, not save, the world. Disheartened and disillusioned, she begins a personal search for others like her–vampires. And to her delight, her search is successful. She also finds a home on a commune and spends her days and nights building her own utopia. But the world continues to implode and she is finally forced to hunt and confront Jack. He must be stopped and it will take all of her power-–as witch and vampire. The Vampires of New England series takes a unique and modern approach to vampires. There is a sophistication to the writing and a clear sense of the deeply ingrained New England reserved nature. Unfortunately, for this book that reserve runs a bit too deep. The 1960’s were a wild and crazy time of great upheaval, but the main character, Diana, sees it as disorder rather than cultural change. Her background is as a wealthy, privately-educated witch with a strong drive to care for the less fortunate. She accepts the losses and tragedies in her life in a pragmatic fashion and her chosen vampirism seems almost a minor inconvenience, but necessary tool to accomplish her goal. Although there is great drive in her, there is little passion. Diana’s pragmatic and sensible approach to magic and vampirism takes out all the wonder and mystery of both. This attitude makes the book colorless in a time when there was a riot of color. I still highly recommend the series, but All the Shadows of the Rainbow misses the mark.
