Author: Rhiannon Frater
Series: In Darkness We Must Abide

Episode 2
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.
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 (Available now)
Roman Socoli inadvertently releases a terrible evil when he has his Romanian ancestors entombed on his estate in Houston, Texas.

After what happened in the Episode 1: Death Comes Home, I was nervous for Vanora as to where the story was going to go. I will have to say, I like the unexpected turn that the story took, and I have hopes for the next episode. There is a lot of changes going around in the Socoli family in the episode. These are such short episodes, but so much happens in just a short amount of time. I love that I felt connected to the characters right away, and you start to feel for them almost immediately. There are many full length books cannot accomplish that feat right off the bat. Rhiannon Frater has a talent for sucking readers into the story right away, and I think the In  Darkness We Must Abide episodes prove that. 

How do you think Vanora's life will be affected by all the changes around her?

My Opinion: I think that Vanora is already use to living the dark since she suffers from Albinism , so the changes are not going to be major. I think she still needs to be cautious, because of the circumstances of the change could still pose a risk to her safety. I am curious to see the extent the changes will affect her in the next episode. 

5 copies of the next episode, The Arrival of Amando DeLeon!
