*This is episode 12 in a serial. My Review may contain spoilers for previous episodes, but it does not contain spoilers for this one. I think I have kept it pretty spoiler free in general, but continue at your own risk. 

Vanora’s only hope to escape her destiny and save those she loves is wrapped in a magic ritual that will not only reveal the supernatural conspiracy formed by a millennia of magic, but also unlock her secret powers.

Deep in the throes of the spell, Vanora witnesses Aeron the White and Terrible's journey from a kindhearted warrior to a deadly creature of prophecy. But the longer she spends time with him, the more dangerous the situation becomes, and Vanora must face the truth hidden in her heart and soul.

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

Okay, these are getting a lot harder to review. I love this serial because it's awesome, but also because each one is like a story all in itself. I love that they are readable in just a short period of time, but it all contributes to the story as a whole. This one is probably one of my favorite episodes so far. It's not fast paced or super scary, but we get to know the story of Aeron. We get to see the changes in him from a child to where he ends up and how he got to be the way he is. I also loved how the future and the past were so integrated together and it made things make a whole lot of sense.

In this episode, we get mostly all Aeron and his past. Vanora unlocks the memories of the past and she takes the journey through parts of Aeron's life with him. Even though it is just a vision, somehow she is present in it. He may not be able to see her, but he knows that she's there. He can feel her and sense her presence. At first I thought it all weird since she technically didn't exist yet, and she can't actually change the past, but the way it was done makes sense if you have followed along and loved this serial like I have.

Vanora has become increasingly stronger as she goes through things. I love her character so much. She doesn't deny the connection she has with Aeron, she doesn't deny the love, but she can choose not to follow her destined path and that's exactly what she does. She won't let fate or a prophecy rule her. She is more determined than ever after this to make sure the prophecy doesn't happen.

I know that this is such a super vague review, and they all seem to be getting this way, but this episode was outstanding. I love Rhiannon's writing and I love her characters. It's so easy to connect with the stories and fall into them. Even not being a huge fan of third person perspective, the way she writes makes me love it. I don't feel the disconnect as I often do with this type of writing. I know I have said this a million times, but if you haven't started this, you really should. The first two seasons are being sold as a set so you don't need to buy them individually and you can just read the episodes straight through. I wish I could buy this serial for everyone because I am seriously in love with it!!
