    This review is for Legacy of Darkness by Jane Godwin the second book in the set I will add the others as I read themThe heroine Lucy Alleyne arrives at Tenebris an innocent young woman alone in the world Demelza Jago a cousin of sorts has brought her here as a companion to her Here Lucy meets the magnetic Uther Jago Demelza's brother and their nephew Tynan the Earl who will come into his inheritance in a few weeks time on his twenty first birthdayThe Jago's have possessed Tenebris and I say it advisedly for hundreds of years and there is a long history of Jago's who have been less than stellar citizensUther has a special interest in Lucy but she becomes aware that the brother and sister have another motive for befriending her that they keep from her The sickly Tynan holds his own secrets and as Lucy learns the history of Tenebris and the Jago family she becomes and disturbedFor some reason Victoria Holt kept coming into my mind although the beginning had faint undertones of a Daphne Du Maurier story I was amused by the reference to Northanger Abbey Jane Austen's very own gothic romance I also was reminded a little of Georgette Heyer's Cousin KateThis was certainly erotic than any of those books mentioned to the point of discomfort Not from the writing but the situation which was probably intentionalOverall it was a little slow to start with but once it gained pace I found myself enthralled I haven't read any gothics for years and it was like a step back into the past recalling the authors I enjoyed as a teenager I think I just dated myself

    Darkening Around Me by Barbara J Hancock25 StarsThe gothic scenes were really well written and creepy as hell but the plot lacked cohesion and felt like set peices The romance was 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 pages to flesh things outLegacy of Darkness by Jane Godman45 StarsNow this was the gothics I remembered reading as a kid with the scandal suspense and horror with a dash of the supernatural I always love when the heroine is torn between two men and neither she nor the reader know which is the evil one or the good one The sensuality is explicit than the Gothics of the 70's and 80's but it wasn't out of place and underlined the themes of the story There were a few things that seemed jarringly modern but I couldn't stop reading until the satisfying yet creepy conclusion Worth the price of the anthologyThe Devil's Eye by Dawn BrownBlack Rose by Jenna Ryan

    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
