Sunshine was a very interesting interpretation of vampire lore. This book was a little Beauty & the Beast, a little Buffy the Vampire Slayer (as already reviewed by others), as well as a little bit Men in Black. I was captivated by the relationship between Sunshine and Bo, but I felt the author got carried away with too many mystical characters (Goddesses, Goblins, Half-Bloods, etc). I also thought Mckinley's writing was a little difficult to follow at times....she assumed the reader knew what she was writing about and half the time I had NO CLUE. Although there was tons of description, I had a hard time picturing what was happening. I think the plot was original, but I think it could have been soooo much better than it was.
