"They took her.
It was a dumb thing to do but it wasn't that dumb. There hadn't been any trouble out at the lake in years. And it was so exquisitely far from the rest of Sunshine's life; she just needed to be alone with her thoughts for a little while. But then the vampires found her. Now, chained and imprisoned in a tumbledown mansion, alone but for the vampire shackled next to her, Sunshine must call on skills she didn't know she had if she is to survive. But her fellow prisoner is not what she expected of a vampire, and soon Sunshine discovers that not only does she need his help, he needs hers..."
--Summary taken form back cover of Sunshine
I thought Sunshine was a great take on vampires and other creatures of the dark (though mainly vampires). McKinley created an interesting plot, if not a bit slow at some points. It did pick up though!
The different twists in the plot were really quite creative. I kept expecting Sunshine (Rae Seddon) to just give in and give up. She didn't though, much as she wanted to. After all, who wouldn't want to?
