She knows that it 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...
Wow, what an amazing book. I don't know that I have words for it just yet, having only finished it a few moments ago, but what an amazing book.
Added in a comment shortly after:
I just finished it and I've immediately joined the community of Sunshine-lovers (okay, that sounds wrong, but I figure you know what I mean).
It was an interesting read, as it went very slowly, but never felt slow. I did need to read some of the long, almost convoluted sentences slowly, but all the information was there, you just had to get it from the Sunshine-speak.
I also felt that this might be the book that has the most of Robin McKinley herself in it, as I often felt when reading Sunshine's thoughts that they were very similar to how McKinley writes when she blogs.
I would also like to know how the timing of the writing of this book fits with the author developing ME, as it kind of reads like someone with ME might think (it certainly feels like my brain going all over the place sometimes).
Anyway, I loved it and I can totally see that it is a book I will need to read again. I am looking forward to my copy arriving so that I can read it whenever I want.
