Darkening Dream by Andy Gavin book review

About The Darkening Dream
As the modern world establishes itself and pushes the supernatural into the shadows, the supernatural fights back.
An ominous vision and the discovery of a gruesome corpse lead Sarah and her friends into a terrifying encounter with a fledgling vampire in 1913 Salem, Massachusetts. Eager to prove themselves, the young heroes set out to track the evil to its source, never guessing that they will take on a conspiracy involving not only a 900-year vampire but also a demon-loving Puritan warlock, disgruntled Egyptian gods, and an immortal sorcerer, all on a quest to recover the holy trumpet of the Archangel Gabriel. Relying on the wisdom of a Greek vampire hunter, Sarah's rabbi father, and her own disturbing visions, Sarah must fight a millennia-old battle between unspeakable forces, where the ultimate prize might be Sarah herself.

My Review:
I have to admit that I have played Crash and Jak before, and I liked them a lot. So when I read that this was from the same mind I was interested in reading it. It was a little on the long side for me, but that was only because it was so involved. By the end of the book I knew the characters and I didn't want the story to end. I mean this book has everything from Salem Witches to Archangels. There are Egyptian Gods and of course vampires. I liked this book a lot because I like mythology and I enjoyed all of the "magic" in the book as well. I also enjoyed watching the friendships grow between the group of friends and I liked that they looked out for each other. I was also surprised towards the end of the book, without giving it away, about the battle and how certain characters took certain sides. If you like vampires, then you will like this book!  I am giving it a 4/5 because of its length!
