This is the first book I've read in a long time that was keep-me-up-late, read-in-the-bathtub good. It was matter-of-fact in its first person narrative, pointedly erotic in places, and obtuse enough to keep me page-turning to find out what is really going on. It's a kind of Vampire the Masquerade, Shadowrun setting where half the fun is finding out about the world and the other half is about the story itself. This is another example of that stream-of-consciousness style that Tanith Lee does so well, only in a must less spooky, self conscious sort of way. The main character is someone that I want to know and hang out with. I was really sorry when the book ended because it meant that the time I got to spend with Sunshine was at an end. There is a quote from Neil Gaiman on the cover calling the book, "pretty much perfect." I have a category that I use for people, practically perfect (a la Marry Poppins). I would apply that label to this novel.
