from the author in exchange for an honest review
All is not well in the Socoli world. Vanora is on the cusp of adulthood and preparing to move way to attend college. Used to their sibling being their anchor to the mortal world, Roman and Alisha are already feeling adrift in their dark world. Meanwhile, the mysterious Armando, shrouded in all his secrets, draws ever closer to Vanora as her feelings for him deepen. Soon their small world will explode into chaos, leaving Vanora to wonder if all she believed to be true were lies.
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.
Read Along Discussion:
Simply put: Episode 5 blew my freaking mind! I have read it several times already, and the shock factor hasn’t dwindled. The Vampires was the best episode of the five, and that’s saying a lot because every episode has been remarkable. Frater built me up with excitement, anticipation, and hope — that warm, fuzzy feeling that wraps itself around me whenever I read a blossoming love story — and then WHAM! I’m left with a gaping hole through the center of my security blankie and everything quickly spirals out of control. It was dark and gruesome, and I loved every moment of it. The pages of this final episode are dripping with sordid drama and intense action. The imagery is vivid and horrifying. I can’t believe how Frater ended this season!! There is so much to look forward to when season two comes out next month. I can’t wait to read the complete first season in paperback, right before moving onto even more Awesomesauce in season two.
Thank you so much, Rhiannon, for including me in this read along. I am in awe of your incredible talent.
