There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it's unwise to walk. Sunshine knew that. But there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and she needed a place to be alone for a while.

Unfortunately, she wasn't alone. She never heard them coming. Of course you don't, when they're vampires.

They took her clothes and sneakers. They dressed her in a long red gown. And they shackled her to the wall of an abandoned mansion-within easy reach of a figure stirring in the moonlight.

She knows that he is a vampire. She knows that she's to be his dinner and that when he is finished with her, she will be dead. Yet, as dawn breaks, she finds that he has not attempted to harm her. And now it is he who needs her to help him survive the day.

This is, and will always be my favorite book. I loved hearing it now too it seems. Perhaps it is because I grew up with this book, I find I always return to it. It’s a story that is deceptive. All the background action is simply part of the real story, of growing up and accepting responsibility.

I have read a number of Robin McKinley’s books, this is one of my favorites. The narrator’s voice was a bit difficult to listen to, she would rush the narration and often I didn’t feel that she was representing the characters well.
