Sunkissed by Carys Jones

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Dawn Summers is dying. It’s 1853 and as the seventeen year old continues to fade away she has visions of the father she never knew, urging her to fight for her life. 

In the small village of Fandova the only medical care is in the form of the mysterious Dr. Moralus who has a known penchant for bloodletting. Thomas, Dawn's fiancé, is warned against inviting his intervention, but feels he has no choice, he pleads with the doctor to save Dawn’s life…whatever it takes. 

Whatever it ‘takes’ has some consequences neither of them expected. Now, it’s a hunt to the death, with both Dawn and Thomas determined to win.

Goodreads Summary

Here is an interesting spin on the vampire cult that is sweeping literature and TV. "Sunkissed" is a dark story that brings to light a lot of topics that we as mortals will never have the "pleasure" of understanding. Is immortality as great as people make it seem? Would you want the same things for centuries on end? These are issues that Dawn Summers faces.

She did not choose immortality and before she obtained it she was on her death bed and ready to leave this earth. I find this a very interesting thing to think about as we think about our lives. This book presents a good take on forever and the hardships that we would face if we were really going to be here that long. I also really liked the twist on the typical vampire lore that there are vampires that can walk in the sunlight. It puts a whole new perspective on the safety of the sun from the things that go bump in the night. This along with the theme of paranormal romance makes for an intriguing story that will appeal to the vampire lovers out there.
