Review – The Gift (In Darkness We Must Abide, Episode 4) by Rhiannon Frater

Beautiful lonely girl  in long dress“You’re not for me, Vanora,” he whispered.  “I am not for you.”

From Amazon: “With the arrival of the new vampires, Vanora’s life has once more been changed forever. The only mortal among the undead, she feels like an outsider in her own home. As her seventeenth birthday approaches, she struggles not only with her deepening feelings for Armando, but also her own burgeoning powers.”

Each Episode of this serial is more and more action packed.  The Gift focuses primarily on Vanora’s seventeenth birthday.  SPOILER ALERT – There are actually many gifts referenced.  Vanora’s powers are a gift and they are becoming stronger with age.  Roman and Alisha are giving Vanora a car (remember being that age and the best gift your parents could give you was a car?)  And, Armando….the sweetest gift of all – a silver charm bracelet with moons and stars.  Swoon.  But, maybe the most important gift she received was the kiss from Armando.  That was a good kiss!

At the end of this episode, Vanora dreams about her mother’s death.  What does Rhiannon have in store for us with this storyline?  I cannot wait to learn more.

EVERYONE should be reading this serial.  It is full of great characters and emotion.  You will be on the edge of your seat waiting for the next installment.  5/5 stars.

Psst…I’ve alread read Episode 5 (review to come) and it is WONDERFUL!  You need to catch up now so that you will be ready when it is released.
