Read Along + Review: Death in the Shadows (In Darkness We Must Abide #2) by Rhiannon Frater

Episode 2: Death in the Shadows

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

I think the chancges will have a huge impact on her, but I think she will accept it. She was definitely scared in this, but by the end, I think she held her head high. She even cracks jokes and all with Alisha and others in the house. I think she will adjust, but  I don't know how long it will last. I hope really hope it does. It will be interesting to see where all of this goes.

Synopsis from Goodreads 
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.
      Death in the Shadows is the second serial if Frater's In Darkness We Must Abide series. This time around we follow Alisha and Vanora dealing with the death of their older brother, Roman. They know about the vampire that killed him and will do what they can to protect themselves. The vampire plans to come back and make Alisha his bride. Her and Vanora are surrounding themselves with crosses and locking the doors to keep him out.

      This was 50 pages of awesomeness. Frater really knows how to put a great vampire story together. I love that we got to follow Alisha and Vanora more in this. We see how scared they are but they will do what they can to save each other no matter how impossible. But there is a possibility of something happening that will put them in even more danger. Unfortunately, this is a major spoil and would ruin the story if I told you.

      I love the Gothic feel of these stories. It is so suspenseful and dark. I love how this serial ended, I love all the characters especially one person in particular I can't mention. I love that even though this is a modern tale, it feels like a classic vampire story. This story is so intriguing and beautifully put together, it is impossible not to love this. I definitely can't wait for the next serial. We are finally going to meet the mysterious Armando. I am so excited. Start this serials right now.
