A mysterious new vampire appears in the life of the Socolis. Is he friend or foe?

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.




This third installment was OUTSTANDING! Rhiannon Frater really knows how to draw you right back in where you left off, and leave you salivating for more at the end, just like a weekly television series. Everything about this installment was captivating. I bit off every one of my nails in the time it took me to read it. I want to talk about how much I love what an awesome young woman Vanora is growing up to be, and about how adorable her crush is, but I am supposed to be discussing Armando. Sexy, swoon-worthy Armando with his auburn eyes and dark lashes. His story had a slight Interview with a Vampire feel to it in some ways; the story he told to the Socoli’s, even though he wasn’t being honest with them. I feel like I am getting to know his character, just as the Socoli’s feel they are becoming his friends. I can understand how easily he was able to manipulate them with his charms. I have a feeling that, although Armando has an ulterior motive, he really does care for Vanora, and that he will end up protecting her at all costs, for his own sake, not because it’s what his Master has commanded. I am so excited to read the fourth episode! I want to curl up and devour this entire series in one night (preferably tonight!).

An easy five stars for episode three!
