Episode 7:

Despite the terrors of her past, Vanora has managed live a normal life in Austin with her roommate Rhonda and her boyfriend Dan. When it all falls apart and Armando comes back into her life, she realizes that she can't escape her destiny. Evil threatens her family, and Vanora must venture into the darkness to save everyone she cares about.

Serial Synopsis:

In Darkness We Must Abide is the epic saga of one young woman caught in the dangerous world of the creatures of the night.

Already living in the shadows due to her albinism, Vanora is just a little girl when her older brother inadvertently unleashes a terrible evil from the family crypt that changes their lives forever.

As she grows up in a world where beautiful deadly beings hunt by night, one captures her eye and her heart. Yet, can she trust the mysterious Armando? For there is a powerful entity plotting to claim her when she reaches adulthood in order to fulfill an ancient prophecy, and her enemy has enveloped her in a web of deceit, casting doubt on all she believes to be true. Soon, she will have to fight not only to save those she loves, but also for her very soul.

Rhiannon Frater delivers a chilling adventure once again with this multi-part epic serial with a dynamic cast, old school vampires, bloody action, a smoldering forbidden love, and a terrifying villain set against the backdrop of a modern day vampire war.

My Thoughts

Dude!! This serial is seriously freaking epic. As you get further into the story, you become more and more invested so it really hits you hard when things get intense. Now being quite far into this, I am having a hard time knowing what to say in my reviews!! Things are really getting intense now, and it's getting super scary. Aeron is not someone to be messed with and he is terrifying!!

Vanora is still away at school, she has an apartment with Rhonda, and is dating Dave who is a nice guy. She finally is having a somewhat normal life. The only thing is her dreams are getting worse and she is in constant fear. She is afraid for everyone around her and also her family back home. When Armando comes back into the picture, I really love how strong she is. She really keeps a pretty clear head about things. When something really tragic happens though, she has no choice but to listen to what Armando is telling her.

I can't really go into much more about this except to tell you that I did have tears in this one. The story is really taking it's toll on me at this point. Each episode is totally addictive and I need the next one the secon I read the last sentence! Rhiannon Frater is a master at investing you into a story and making you really feel the whole atmosphere along with all the emotions! I need to know where this is going, but am also afraid of what will happen next. The suspense is killing me, but in a really good way!! I need more now!!

  6. Ahh I'm really happy you're loving this serial! I've heard nothing but glowing reviews for all of Rhiannon Frater's books, so I'm super happy that you loved this one just as much as you've loved all of her other novels. A serial sounds like such a creative idea for a story, and having tears while reading is always a good thing, even if it's because of something really sad :D
