SlayerLit ::: KindredLit
by Robin McKinley
"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, as dawn 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...
"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 THE VAMPIRE, MISERY, and the tale of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST." - Neil Gaiman
"Before reading SUNSHINE, I had no idea that blood and dessert could go together so well." - Amber Benson
