With the arrival of the new vampires, Vanora’s life has once more been changed forever. The only mortal among the undead, she feels like an outsider in her own home. As her seventeenth birthday approaches, she struggles not only with her deepening feelings for Armando, but also her own burgeoning powers.

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.

Each episode will be between 10,000 and 20,000 words with new installments being published every 2 to 3 weeks.


“The Gift”

Armando, the delectable vampire with his dark curls, hard body, and smoldering, golden eyes, is slowly gaining Vanora’s trust. He has been patient and calculating, biding his time, but does he really feel something for her? Can she ever trust a vampire? When Armando gives Vanora “the gift,” he surely gets his foot in the door. The gift was sweet and thoughtful, maybe even romantic. The intensity is building, and Vanora doesn’t know how much longer she can be a “good little girl.” Is she heading for a lifetime of love and happiness with this 400 year old vampire? Knowing Rhiannon Frater, it’s highly unlikely, but the romantic in me (yes, there is a tiny little girl inside of me that weeps for a good love story) wants to believe that Vanora and Armando go riding off in the sun… er, moonlight together. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next, and final *sniff*, episode of season one!

Five stars for episode four!
