Publisher Comments:

From acclaimed author Robin McKinley — a mesmerizing novel of supernatural desire...

"Her feet are already bleeding — if you like feet..."

There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it's unwise to walk. Sunshine knew that. But there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and she needed a place to be alone for a while.

Unfortunately, she wasn't alone. She never heard them coming. Of course you don't, when they're vampires.

They took her clothes and sneakers. They dressed her in a long red gown. And they shackled her to the wall of an abandoned mansion — within easy reach of a figure stirring in the moonlight.

She knows that he is a vampire. She knows that she's to be his dinner, and that when he is finished with her, she will be dead. Yet, when light breaks, she finds that he has not attempted to harm her. And now it is he who needs her to help him survive the day...

Review:

"Most of the charm of this long venture into magic maturation derives from McKinley's keen ear and sensitive atmospherics, deft characterizations and clever juxtapositions of reality and the supernatural..." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A gripping, funny, page-turning, pretty much perfect work of magical literature that exists more or less at the unlikely crossroads of Chocolat, Interview With the Vampire, Misery, and the tale of Beauty and the Beast." Neil Gaiman, bestselling author of American Gods and creator of The Sandman

Review:

"McKinley opens new territory on the vampire range....I can't put her books down while I'm reading them, and...[they] carry me along for a good while after. I hope she writes more about Sunshine and her world..." Grey Walker, Green Man Review

Review:

"Fabulous, fascinating, and a whole lot of fun. Step into Robin McKinley's thrilling, beautifully described world, where you will meet some interesting vampires and a lady who can deal with the creatures of the night." Jayne Ann Krentz

Review:

"I had no idea that blood and dessert could go together so well. I loved it!" Amber Benson, "Tara" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer

In her first novel for adults, the bestselling author and Newbery Medalist pens an exciting, beautifully written, erotic addition to the popular vampire genre.

Synopsis:

“Sunshine” is what everyone calls her. She works long hours in her family’s coffeehouse, making her famous “Cinnamon Rolls as Big as Your Head,” Bitter Chocolate Death, Caramel Cataclysm, and other sugar-shock specials that keep the customers coming. She’s happy in her bakery—which her stepfather built specially for her—but sometimes she feels that she should have life outside the coffeehouse.

One evening she drives out to the lake to get away from her family, to be alone. There hasn’t been any trouble at the lake for years.

But there is trouble that night for Sunshine. She is abducted by a gang of vampires who shackle her to the wall of an abandoned mansion, within easy reach of a figure stirring in the moonlight. Sunshine knows that he is a vampire and that she is to be his dinner. Yet when dawn breaks he has not attempted to harm her.

And now he needs her help to survive the day...

Chirpee, April 20, 2007 (view all comments by Chirpee)
I still am not entirely sure about this book. Parts of it were really interesting and original, but I suppose I like my vampires a little less like disgusting walking corpses. I also never was really clear about some of the character relationships, which was ok, because I didn't really care about most of the characters. I have read a lot of different vampire lores, and this is actually one of my least favorite. The history hinted at in the book is also never really fleshed out, which I feel would have helped make the story more interesting and develop the characters. It wasn't a bad book, but it probably isn't one I will read again or highly recommend to others.
