Review – Destruction (In Darkness We Must Abide – Episode 7) by Rhiannon Frater

Beautiful lonely girl  in long dressIn the 7th episode of this serial, we finally learn what drives Vanora back to the Socoli mansion and to her vampire family.

From Goodreads: “Despite the terrors of her past, Vanora has managed live a normal life in Austin with her roommate Rhonda and her boyfriend Dan. When it all falls apart and Armando comes back into her life, she realizes that she can’t escape her destiny. Evil threatens her family, and Vanora must venture into the darkness to save everyone she cares about.”

Vanora’s life hasn’t been the same since her brother and sister became vampires.  Because of the violence surrounding them, she’s moved to Austin with her friend, Rhonda, and basically given up her family.  She also had to let go of Armando as he is part of that violent world.  Unfortunately, the darkness continues to follow her as her destiny lies with the vampires.

While we didn’t see much of the mysterious albino vampire in this episode, we did get a lot of Armando – never a bad thing.  Vanora seems fairly happy with Dan but she does start to see that he isn’t as perfect as she thought.  This quote in particular made me start to really dislike him: “But a lot of women, like your roomie, really shouldn’t be wearing white on their wedding day, huh?”  Um, Dan, I’ve got news for you.  Rhonda is worth 10 of your judgmental self.

Destruction is full of action and a lot of sadness.  I am hopeful that Vanora will finally find a way out of the fate that seems to await her.  In a perfect world, she will find a way to be with Armando but I’d settle for peace for both.  Fingers crossed.

5/5 stars.  Thank you to the author for providing an e-copy through the Readalong.
