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.GoodReadsAmazon
Rhiannon Frater is a cruel cruel mistress. Her death toll in this serial is climbing higher and higher and I fear who will be next. Yet, Frater never kills anyone for shock value. Each death is a blow to the story, but also adds to it, and moves it forward. The deaths are hard knocks to the reader as well. I have found myself weeping during this series quiet often.
Rhiannon continues to weave her modern gothic story in a creative and captivating way. Each episode is edge of your seat gripping, and though short they are fulfilling. Each episode is like a TV show (obviously) and gives me a glimpse into the world of some my favorite characters, and yes I have fallen in love with these characters. Plus Armando, swoon.
The title of this episode is semi-spoilerish, if you have been reading along then you know who the King is and how he will fall. It was tragic, and horrible. Like I said Rhiannon packs a powerful emotional punch!
If you haven’t started reading this serial yet, I highly recommend it.
