Description

"Sunshine is 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 a Vampire, Misery, and the tale of Beauty and the Beast. It's not quite SF, and it's not really horror, and only kind of a love story, and it's all three while still being solidly Fantastique. It also does that nice thing where the author assumes the readers are smart, and she treats us like we're smart, and we purr and get smarter and work harder for all that."-Neil Gaiman, New York Times bestselling author

"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

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

"Buffyesque baker Rae "Sunshine" Seddon meets Count Dracula's hunky Byronic cousin in Newbery-Award-winner McKinley's first adult-and-then-some romp through the darkling streets of a spooky post-Voodoo Wars world...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...McKinley knows very well--and makes her readers believe--that 'the insides of our own minds are the scariest things there are.'"--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Smart, dark, and riveting. Sunshine is quite possibly the best vampire book published in my lifetime." -Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

"A luminous, entrancing novel with an enthralling pair of characters at its heart." -Booklist

"A smart, funny tale of suspense and romance." -San Francisco Chronicle

"Before reading Sunshine, I had no idea that blood and dessert could go together so well." -Amber Benson

"McKinley [balances] the dark drama with light touches of humor. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will feel at home, but McKinley's novel has its own originality and depth." -Orlando Sentinel

"A dark, sensual vampire fairy tale." -This Week Newspapers (Ohio)

"Sunshine has magic in every word." -Sherrilyn Kenyon, New York Times bestselling author

"Sunshine takes everything we have always known about the menacing eroticism of pale men with sharp teeth and throw it up into the air." -Time Out
