MY REVIEW OF THE 1ST EPISODE: In Darkness We Must Abide
Rhiannon is killing me writing this book in episodes. I feel like my world was placed on a shelf and the amazing world of In Darkness We Must Abide has totally taken control. This world of gothic horror, this family and the mysteries they hold are making my head spin.
In this episode we find Roman, Alisha, and Vanora dealing with the horror that had escaped the coffin and the changes that have come with it. Rhiannon did an AWESOME job AGAIN of the story playing out in my head like I was watching this as a movie (which it needs to be!). I love the way Rhiannon is writing Alisha and Vanora as strong, courageous, and an amazing young women. Even Vanora as a child is brave and strong in this episode. And Roman as the protective older brother makes me smile when I read the things he says and does. I just love him. And in this episode I felt like we got to know Alisha a little better and I really like her.
I would love to tell you every detail of this story because it is so great. But I need to leave a little for you to read. Just remember once you start it's hard to wait for Rhiannon's next episode....it's killing me!!!!FASTER RHIANNON FASTER!!!! :)
Obviously 5 STARS!!! It's RHIANNON!
