"Feria: The Darkest Light" is an intense and suspenseful story of mystery and thrilling revelation as described by creators Carlos Montero (Elite) and Agustín Martínez (La Caza: Monteperdido). Set in scenic Andalusia in the 90s, a 17-year-old girl and her sister find themselves alone facing their town calling for justice and revenge when their parents, who have disappeared, are accused of killing more than twenty people. Thus begins this story in which there is also a sect, grunge music, some fantastic creatures, the Andalusia sun, and a mine that looks like a labyrinth.
The first season of “Feria: The Darkest Light” has received mixed reviews. Some people think it’s original and create a dark atmosphere, while others find the storyline confusing; personally, I did not know what was going on at first but ended up enjoying it!
When Eva and Mar’s lips first touched in episode 1, I was hooked.
The story is rather confusing, but we continue to watch all episodes of the season because many questions need answers.
Eva and Mar’s relationship is something that we can’t wait to see in later episodes. And episodes 6 and 7 will remain the best ones since it’s really in these episodes that their relationship settles down.
