Picked this up at my local ubs, Willow Tree Books.

From the cover -
There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it's unwise to walk. But there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and Sunshine just needed a spot where she could be alone with her thoughts. Vampires never entered her mind.
Until they found her...

I loved this book! It's been a while since I've read a vampire novel, and I found this book wonderfully unique. McKinley has invented a post-modern urban fantasy world, set after the Voodoo Wars destroyed certain areas. (I usually don't like urban fantasy, but a lot of the setting of this story is set in a coffee shop which makes the story, perhaps well, cozier.)

Rae (Sunshine) was raised in her mother's world, after her father left during the Voodoo Wars, and the only contact she had with his family was her grandmother who taught her to transmute objects, but that was a long time ago, and she was just a beginner. These powers go a long way in this story, and the ending is left open for another tale about Sunshine (which I hope there is one).

This book will soon be off to Colorado to its new home, promised in the Wishlist tag thread. I can highly recommend this book, and I hope the next reader enjoys it as much as I did!

I loved this book! It started out seeming like a normal story, and I was confused because Robin Mckinley is a fantasy author. More and more gets revealed as you go on. Excellent read!
