Sun Poisoned (The Sun Shine Series) Book#2 is a mysterious journey through the twist and turns of the life of Sunshine. Sun Poisoned picks up where book 1 left off, with Sunshine picking up the pieces from the physical and emotional pain that had been her life. She has healed and living with her friends and Myles in New York city. Playing her music, Sunshine appears to now be living the dream. Although even at the very beginning, there appears to be a cloud marring the happiness of life, with the nightmares that have begun to come back to torture Sunshine. Things pick up, and the bottom drops out as the story progresses, with the secrets beginning to weave their lies into Sunshine’s reality, straining the relationships in her life. I will say that the ending was a mouth dropping event and now I have been placed on pins and needles, wondering with nail-biting intensity, what will happen? Will everything, or anything be okay? What of my favorite couple?
I enjoyed Sun Posioned as much the first, the author has done a phenomenal job at taking a character who is hurt and broken in many places, and giving her such an inner strength, its astounding to witness and very inspirational. Also the fact that the strength of this character so far in the series is not due to any paranormal ability, but through Human resilience. Sunshine, is an incredible young lady, that with the love of her family, friends and the desire not to be a victim, overcomes many of the challenges that had been thrown her way. Nikki Rae, deals with many intense subjects with a gentle hand, and I love that regardless of all the ugliness that has occurred in Sunshine’s life, she still has the ability to create beauty through her music. Because she is a fighter and will not allow who she is at the core to be stolen, by Human or Vampire predators.
The book had a very steady, poetic flow, that keeps the reader interested and looking forward to the next chapter. Of course with the cliffhanger I am on edge and very much looking forward to the third book in the series!
I fully recommend Sun Poisoned to those who enjoy Paranormal reads. The rating is for Older Teens through Adults for some intense imagery.
