Sunshine
Robin McKinley

This thoughtful and well-crafted vampire romance envisions of a world where the Others are very much a fact of the 20th century, a world, indeed, where perhaps the Others are winning. This tale of a young coffee-shop baker, maker of excellent cinnamon rolls and fanciful desserts (like the cherry-filled Death of Marat) is scrupulously fair, and McKinley's vampires carefully adhere to tradition and to the internal logic of McKinley's complex world.
