Sunshine is just your average baker with a fascination for the Others--werecreatures, demons, vampires, and more--until she's caught up in a supernatural feud. Chained in a ballroom with a kidnapped vampire, hunger and sunlight will soon drive her fellow captive to kill her. Her almost-forgotten magic could help her escape, but can she save the vampire who spared her life as well? Set in a post-apocalyptic alternate universe, this exploration of trauma, connection, and the moral consequences of power is as darkly enchanting as a fairy tale, with the wry humor of Buffy. Worth a read for the descriptions of Sunshine's baked goods alone, though you might want to have something sweet on hand. ~ Reviewed by Parker Goodreau
