it was ok
Read in January, 2011

I am a big McKinley fan, "Beauty" is simply one of the finest books out there, but this one really failed to impress. The premsis is interesting enough-America post-something, mythical creatures are around (vampires, demons, etc.) but not in mainstream society. A girl, Sunshine, encounters vampires, is captured and escapes after freeing one. Better than Twilight for sure but I still left disappointed. McKinley's writing is usually supernal, beautiful, poetic. I found this one short, choppy. There were a lot of references to her created world that she didn't explain. The huge disappointment was some pretty heavy sexual imagery (I am not sure if this is YA or not--but still...) and the "f" word!! What!? The storyline was not cohesive and I was disappointed.
