Overview

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.

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

Roman Socoli inadvertently releases a terrible evil when he has his Romanian ancestors entombed on his estate in Houston, Texas.

    Still haunting, it gets going pretty well on the gore factor in

    Still haunting, it gets going pretty well on the gore factor in this episode, but it does take a while still, to get there. Vanora, now a mature young lady, is pretty much getting ready to leave to go to college and maybe lead a somewhat more normal life. How will her undead siblings Alisha and Roman fare without her and deal with it? It’s not looking good, especially since she has already spent an entire summer with her human side of the family. This let us see the vampire siblings slip further into the darkness of the vampire culture and nature…and embrace it.

    This also takes you deeper into Armando’s feelings for Vanora. Though I loved what happens between them, it was timed so wrongly and made for a mess that left my head spinning once Vanora leaves. ***Spoiler alert… I hated how the vampires screwed up Vanora & Armando’s lovely moment. Left me hanging. End Spoiler***

    A very intense episode and the sneak peek at the end into Armando’s gruesome master’s world was amazing! It was so gothically grotesque and ominous; I wanted to read more after that. If the rest of the episodes dive into that world, it’s going to be even more amazing than the first season.

    After season 1, I’m taking a break from this series…but will definitely be returning soon to read the rest of it and look forward to all of season 2. I enjoyed my forage into the world of serial novels and I highly recommend reading stories this way.

    If you like chilling, vampire reads that will be an ongoing series with extra dark undertones, this is it.
