Quite possibly the greatest
vampire novel I have ever read. This is not merely hyperbole; Robin McKinley
has created a world of magic, detailing the aftermath of a war against vampires
and demons with an end result of government-registered magic. Where the only
good demon is a part-blood demon and that’s only if your “power” is the kind
that pours the hottest cup of coffee. I dare you to read this book without
wanting Sunshine’s cinnamon rolls ‘big as your head’ or a slice of her ‘death
by chocolate.’ The romance is believable but not over the top as some other
glittery vampire novels. Constantine
will win your heart but you will want Sunshine to be your best friend. This
summer marks the fourth re-reading and every time I discover something new.
This is my chicken soup book and the novel I purchase for friends whenever I’m
wondering what to get them for a birthday or I think it is time they learn how
well vampires and baking go together.
