Vanora is haunted by the night her faith in her love and her siblings was shattered. After taking refuge in Austin in hopes of creating a new life, Vanora is tormented by dreams and visions of a mysterious albino vampire.
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.
What a perfect perfect perfect way to start Season 2!!! This review contains spoilers from Season 1, so be warned!
This first episode gives us SO much to think about! First off, Aeron, who was revealed at the end of the first season, is already playing a prominent role. Honestly, I don’t really know what to think of him. Even though he’s a “bad guy”, in the psychotic-manipulative-mass murderer kind of way, he also has a certain mysterious appeal. Vanora feels the call of destiny, drawing them together. Will she be able to fight it? Or will she be drawn into the dark once more?
And then, of course, we have Armando. I went nuts after that little scene in episode 5 (You know the one I’m talkin’ about. Don’t pretend you don’t!) and now all I want is for him to swoop in and rescue Vanora from her own Fate. Except, maybe Vanora doesn’t need rescuing. Maybe she’s strong enough to save herself…
Overall, this was exactly what I was hoping for. It started a new chapter in Vanora’s life, and introduced a whole whack of speculation to keep me up at nights. Aw, heck. Who needs sleep?!
