Dark Passages is a coming-of-age story encapsulating the romance and innocence of JFK’s Camelot era and the tumultuous “dark passages” of Meg Harrison, a vampire raised by her mother to resist the temptation of human blood. Meg arrives in New York determined not to use her vampiric gifts to fulfill her dream of becoming an actress. She joins the cast of the cult hit Dark Passages, only to face her nemesis, a beautiful 300-year-old witch bent on destroying her. "eir rivalry leads to a final confrontation as the telekinetic vampire and spell-weaving sorceress engage in a spectacular battle for supremacy. It takes all of Meg’s wit and tenacity to defeat the witch and win the affections of a handsome young mortal with a secret life of his own. In the end, Meg realizes that the powers she always denied within herself are not a curse, but a blessing.
Gothic undertones and a removed voice mark Scott's first novel, a thinly veiled reminiscence of her star turn on the 1960s supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows. Meg Harrison is a closeted vampire who only feeds on animals. She flees farm life for the big city to become a Playboy bunny and join the cast of Dark Passages, a daytime show with vampires. A merry-go-round of supporting characters and events adds detail if not depth. Scott plows through the story arc as though it were a sequel to her memoir, The Bunny Years, rather than fiction meant to entertain. Vegetarian Meg is a sheep in vamp's clothing and unlikely to appeal to paranormal romance or horror fans, but her story will be a hit with Dark Shadows aficionados whose appetites have been whetted by news of Tim Burton's forthcoming film adaptation of the show.
