I started to read the story about Sophie and her unique condition of her having to be completely covered by the sun. It did hold my interest in why she was that way, as an 18 year old in High School, that age is hard enough. To deal with regular teenage issues, she goes through a lot but she is a strong character that deals with deep dark issues with her friend Myles. He helps her but it seem they were more than friends or could of been more than friends. Keeps you reading to see if they will be. But with all the issues going on keeps you reading to find out what will come next for Sophie and for Myles. Both Characters were uniquely written to keep your interest. I don't give out spoilers so you will have to read it to find out what deep dark issues I am talking about.
I was given a free copy for in return for an honest review. This is a good read.

Holy Cow!!! Was that ever intense? And the best part? It was intense in a whole new way. The intensity was in the different situations faced by the main character. These weren’t all life and death situations, but still rated off the charts on the intensity scale.
Rae has a way with words. Her descriptions were phenomenal and were worked right into the story in such a seamless manner that you cannot help but be impressed. She was also extremely articulate in the way that she wrote. The entire novel was very clear and detailed without becoming extremely verbose. She manages to evoke a wide array of emotions in her readers. By combining reality with the paranormal the situations all seem so real that you cannot help but react to them. Rae also worked some really cool concepts, such as her version of evolving, that aren’t seen elsewhere.
The characters in this book were very well developed. There wasn’t a single character that I felt like I needed to know more about in order to understand them or their role in the novel. Details about characters were interspersed in the novel where necessary. Rae never stops the forward flow of the novel in order to develop a character all at once, giving a narrative overload. Obviously, those characters that played minor roles in the novel weren’t quite as detailed as the main characters, but that also prevents unnecessary downtime in the plot in order to develop characters needlessly.
This novel was an amazing start to the Sunshine series. It leaves you wanting, no needing, more but also with a feeling of completion. Cudos.
