'Salem's Lot is a small New England town with white clapboard houses, tree-lined streets, and solid church steeples. That summer in 'Salem's Lot was a summer of home-coming and return; spring burned out and the land lying dry, crackling underfoot. Late that summer, Ben Mears returned to 'Salem's Lot hoping to cast out his own devils... and found instead a new unspeakable horror.

A stranger had also come to the Lot, a stranger with a secret as old as evil, a secret that would wreak irreparable harm on those he touched and in turn on those they loved.

All would be changed forever—Susan, whose love for Ben could not protect her; Father Callahan, the bad priest who put his eroded faith to one last test; and Mark, a young boy who sees his fantasy world become reality and ironically proves the best equipped to handle the relentless nightmare of 'Salem's Lot.

I am personally very fond of almost everything by Stephen King, but this is one of my favorites. I found it full of perfect horror and delicious evil. I love the way it comes so close to connecting with Dracula while being so fresh and original. The creatures of the night are so well characterized as to make them a single unit (probobly not to confuse with to many characters)yet each is different and their own self. Vampirism seems by Kings description to be a desease, it is a very intresting story and is well suggested

Salem's Lot is magical and bewitching. A good, almost true story of what it was like during the Witch Trials. A very very awesome book.

Salem is a boy in Sabrina but in this book Salem is taken on differently. You may be intimidated by the cover due to it's scarniess but you really will enjoy this book.

Read Salem's Lot and you will be introduced into a whole new world!
