Sun Poisoned

Sun Poisoned

Please note that this review may contain spoilers for Sunshine. You can read my review of this novel [here].

Sun Poisoned was written by Nikki Rae and first published in 2013. The novel forms the second part of The Sunshine Series, preceded by Sunshine (2013) and followed by Sun Damage (2014). As this novel carries on directly where Sunshine left off, I’d advise reading the stories in sequence in order to fully appreciate them.

Sophie Jean’s life is looking up. She’s finally managed to move out of her parents’ home and now lives in central New York with the rest of her band. Myles has set them up a regular gig playing at a nightclub called Midnight and, best of all, people seem to love them. All of her dreams have finally come true and for the first time in her life she’s truly happy.

However, things can’t last. She finds it hard to adapt to a life surrounded by vampires. Although Myles has started to be more open about his supernatural side, there are still many things that he hasn’t shared with her. As Sophie hangs around with Ava, Evan’s human girlfriend, she starts to learn that Myles is keeping some huge secrets from her. Ones that could put her life in danger.

When tragedy strikes, Sophie is forced to question just how strong her relationship with Myles is. She loves him but is it possible to be with someone who only seems to tell half-truths? Sophie though that she’d put her dark past behind her but the monsters have followed her and now they’re more dangerous than ever…

Sunshine

Sunshine was first published in 2013 and is the debut novel of Nikki Rae. It is a dark paranormal romance that focuses a teenager called Sophie Jean who suffers from a rare allergy to sunlight. Sunshine forms the first part of The Sunshine Series and is followed by Sun Poisoned (2013) and Sun Damage (2014).

Sophie, known occasionally as Sunshine by her friends, has not had the easiest of lives. Her allergy has left her pitied or mocked by many of her classmates, her mother is ashamed of her and a history of abuse has left her scarred both physically and mentally. Despite her trauma, she is working hard to get her life back on track and has no desire whatsoever in starting a relationship with anyone.  That is, until Myles Lott comes into her life.

Although Sophie has no interest in Myles, she soon finds that he seems to be everywhere that she goes and merely grows more persistent when she tries to give him the cold shoulder. Yet there is something about the teenager that draws her back to him and she soon finds that she is beginning to open up to him.

Frightened that he will abandon her if he discovers more about her past, Sophie is torn between starting a relationship with Myles and running away but she quickly begins to discover that she is not the only one with secret. Myles has mysterious powers and harbours a secret that is far more unusual that her own. Suddenly, Sophie discovers that the monsters of her past were just men and that the real monsters stalk the night, hungry for blood…
