Blurb: Episode 3:

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.

Episode 1: Death Comes Home
Roman Socoli inadvertently releases a terrible evil when he has his Romanian ancestors entombed on his estate in Houston, Texas.

Episode 2: Death in the Shadows
Death has claimed a Socoli, but the family curse will not allow him to stay dead. Vanora and Alisha must battle the creature that stole their brother’s life while fearing the possible resurrection of Roman.

Lori’s Thoughts:
In this episode we meet Armando. Yes, finally. Vanora’s first encounter with Armando is in a grocery store where she feels the urge to run from him. He then shows up at their home. He befriends Roman, and Alisha. He seems interested and maybe drawn to Roman’s lifestyle, yet by the end of the episode we are left with the impression that all is not what it seems with Armando.

This weeks Discussion: ARMANDO

Do I want to kiss Armando or kick him? That is the question. He drives me crazy, and he only gets better and worse, and I get more crazy. Seriously people this is the most fun I’ve had reading in a long time. Rhiannon Frater bring her signature style, chaos and badassery and paints this baby all pretty, and soon enough she’s gonna rip it all to shreds because that’s what she does. I. CANNOT. WAIT. Love it.

The story is fast paced and well written, each episode just gets better and better building. Soon enough everything is going to explode. This is the first work I have read by Rhiannon that is focused on a relationship. It’s interesting and rewarding seeing her pull it off.

Here’s the thing about this serial. Each and every episode builds on the information that we have been given. It has partial resolutions and even those are not set in stone. I cannot wait to see where this story takes us.

Now for the giveaway. Rhiannon is giving away 5 ecopies of episode 4!
