Forget Anne Rice, the vampires in this book are truly evil and terrifying, the near future world a truly frightening place and the narrative drive pure edge-of-the-seat stuff. Amazingly McKinley is an American children’s writer and this is her first foray into adult fiction. It’s fantastic.
Sunshine by Robin McKinley
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, when light 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…
