When the public learned that the Roman Catholic Church practiced sorcery with a group of dark magicians operating within the ranks, the church collapsed. The vampires, whose existence was made public, learned how the church deceived them and declared a jihad, destroying all those who practiced good magick which kept in check the forces of darkness. The Book of Shadows, the grimoire that contained the spells used to repel the forces of evil was lost leaving Earth open to malevolent beings from other dimensions.

While the church is trying to reconstruct the book so that when evil strikes they will be prepared, Peter Octavian, former vampire and the world¿s most powerful sorcerer, tries to lead a normal human life. When cities around the world start disappearing, Peter once again marches into battle but the enemy he fights is new to him and he is uncertain that he and his allies are powerful enough to stop it.

Fans of the ¿Shadow¿ saga will be happy to learn that there is another installment in this powerful urban fantasy series. Christopher Golden is a potent storyteller who places his fantasy creatures in modern times so credibly that the audience believes in their existence. That is the mark of a true storyteller and Mr. Golden is one of the best. The ending will leave readers satisfied yet holds out the hope there will be more books forthcoming in the series.

I've impatiently waited for the continuation of the Shadow Saga and am immortally thrilled with The Gathering Dark. Chris Golden brings you to the edge of suspense and just when you remember to breathe he surprises you with another twist. He engages his audiences brilliantly. It's a must read!
