Review – Death Comes Home (In Darkness We Must Abide #1) by Rhiannon Frater

Beautiful lonely girl  in long dressAs you all may know, Rhiannon Frater is one of my favorite authors.  She writes interesting novels about people who just happen to be vampires, zombies, necromancers, witches or other ‘monsters’.  When I saw that she was writing an episodic serial, I jumped at the opportunity to be one of the first to read and enjoy Episode 1 – Death Comes Home.

Here is the Goodreads description: “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 – Roman Socoli inadvertently releases a terrible evil when he has his Romanian ancestors entombed on his estate in Houston, Texas.”

Death Comes Home delivers as the start to a great novel.  I finished it last night and am already itching to get my hands on Episode 2.  The cliffhanger is brutal!!  5/5 stars.
