immediately loved both Finn and Megan. I liked the depth between them and the way the author kept us guessing who was really the satanists.

The first part did drag a bit, but once you get towards the end you realize there was a reason she had to tell the backstory, and a reason for the tension between the two main characters.

I hope to see more of Finn and Megan and definitely advise anyone looking for a good mystery with some romance to pick this up and read it.

Megan and Finn Douglas perform their musical act in Salem, Massachusetts hotel during Halloween week. Instead of a warm return home for Megan, who once lived here, nightmares plague her. She dreams that Finn is evil and wants to harm her. Sex after they fall asleep turns very rough and frightens Megan. At the same time, Megan hears tales about the history of Salem besides the highly publicized historical witch-hunt. She learns that at one time Satanists attempted several times to bring forth the demon Bac-Dal. Several people including her cousin warns her that Finn is evil.
Finn worries about his wife and the strange occurrences including a weird fog that engulfs them. He calls an acquaintance from New Orleans, Lucian, who arrives faster than a human could, comes to help. Lucien and his friends struggle to keep Megan and Finn safe, but against what and who are unknown.

Though ALL HOLLOW'S EVE takes time to set the cast and location, once the troubles begin, this becomes an engaging paranormal romance.

I love this series, however I could not get into this book. The first four books where so good, that I read them in 1-2 sittings. This took me about a month to get through. The premise is promising - witchcraft, vampires, Salem...what more could you ask for?? The second part of the book did pick up more speed and the author kept you guessing at who the "villian" was. So, I will give it another read through because I do love this series so much and enjoyed Kiss of Darkness (under Heather Graham) and just picked up Blood Red (also under the name of Heather Graham) book number 8 in the series.

I've been to Salem around Halloween and stayed in a very old bed & breakfast inn. Reading The Awakening felt like I was there again. I read into the wee hours of the morning I was so engrossed.
