Coffeehouse baker Rae ’Sunshine’ Seddon’s memories of her own heritage resurface after she is captured by the Others. The daughter of a powerful magic handler, Sunshine creates an escape for herself and frees her cellmate, Constantine. The problem—he is also one of the Others, one of the very worst of the Others--a vampire.
Sunshine’s decision forever changes her “Bitter-Chocolate-Death” bakery life. While she struggles with her newly discovered powers and the shame of having saved a vampire, not to mention the unexpectedly warm feelings she has for him, she and Constantine team up to fight the true evil.
An unpretentious hero, Constantine is not suave or handsome. He is the darkness to Sunshine’s light. But how dark is he, really? He is chivalrous and sensitive to Sunshine’s every need. He can walk in the moonlight, an unusual phenomenon for a vampire of his age. Although he shares few details of his backstory and, more importantly, does not explain how he feeds, choosing to trust him is not difficult.
The story plays out in a family-run bakery complete with mouth-watering descriptions of cinnamon rolls and Triple-Ginger Gingerbread with boats of cream cheese sauce. Indulge your sweet tooth, if only vicariously, when friends drop by Sunshine’s bakery for a plateful of Killer Zebras.
Sunshine’s chronically-PMSing mother, her tattooed, warrior-biker boyfriend, and her dear were-friend Mrs. Bialosky are only a few of the quirky characters she sometimes cannot live with but could never live without. Her love for them is unshaken after she realizes that many of them harbor shadow traces of Other-bloodedness. It is her love for this extended bakery family, the cinnamon rolls she makes from scratch each morning, and the ‘healing touch’ of sunlight on her face that strengthens her resolve when she faces the seemingly insurmountable odds against her survival.
Sunshine is a book that compels you to reread it, both for the enjoyment of it and to answer many lingering questions. The answers-- as hidden as the secret raspberry-and-black-currant filling in Sunshine’s Death of Marat--are tucked into single lines of dialogue and are buried in Sunshine’s meandering thoughts as she tries to sort out her new life.
Not the typical vampire story, Sunshine is enthralling all the same. McKinley drives home her point by not providing more details about her characters’ histories. The individuals show their true selves in the deeds they accomplish. What they are or are not does not matter. It is what they do that makes the difference.
I won't go into all the details that other reviewers have already covered. I was quite amused and impressed by McKinley's ability to bring her writing "down" (I use this term in admiration, not derision) to the level of her protagonist. The plot is rich and detailed. All I could want.
It would be neat for McKinley to revisit these characters in the future--perhaps 10 years down the road, story-wise.
