Dark Shadows Barnabas Collins and Quentin's Demon

Barnabas Collins and Quentin's Demon is the fourteenth of the novels written by Marilyn Ross as part of a separate continuity.

Publisher's summary[]

When Quentin Collins invited Lara Balfour to Collinwood, they knew each other only from the correspondence that had grown out of Quentin's admiration for the haunting waltz her father had composed.

Soon Quentin professes to love Lara -- but is his love really a threat? His first wife's throat was torn out by a wolflike creature who escaped capture. Since then, other young women have died in the same grisly the full of the moon, when Quentin's mysterious "attacks" occur.

Lara faces the terrifying possibility that her brooding, sensitive host is a werewolf. She won't leave Collinwood, for that would mean leaving Barnabas, whom she has come to love. But will Barnabas be able to save her, if she stays?


In 1895, Quentin Collins is so haunted by the recording of a waltz that he seeks out its composer. A romance ensues between Quentin and Lara Balfour, the composer's daughter. She is attracted to the young man but becomes frightened when she learns that his first wife was brutally murdered and the killer was never found.
