Sophie's life has changed. She's moved to New York, she's playing music for new people, and she's making new friends. Then there's Myles, and the fact that he is now her boyfriend - and everyone knows it.
She's not exactly normal, living in a half-human, half-vampire world, but she's finally, truly happy. However, some parts of Sophie and Myles' old lives still hide in the dark, waiting for the right opportunity to strike.
Sophie's having nightmares again, but they aren't about her; Myles is hiding something as well, something Sophie isn't sure she wants to know.
And one lie will change everything.
No matter how hard she tries to cover up the marks her monsters have left behind, they never truly go away, and Myles' monsters are no different.
Once again, Sophie's caught between life and death, but this time, only she can save herself.
- Goodreads -
Sun Poisoned is the second book in the Sunshine series and follows the life of Sophie, Myles and their friends. Sophie has moved to New York together with her best friends Boo and Trei and her boyfriend Myles to pursue a music career. For the first time in her life Sophie is finally happy.
The plot is more deep then the first book. Myles’ vampire world collides with Sophie’s human life and she struggles to keep them apart. And the more they learn to trust each other and the more they become comfortable with one another how harder it becomes to keep both worlds separated. Both of them face, literally, their own demons. But Myles and Sophie were there for each other when needed and sure they made some mistakes but mostly it was because they wanted to protect the other. Sophie is a strong girl and is determined to not let anything or anyone control her life again. And while she’s struggling herself she’s still there for Myles and her brother when they need her. Myles was great too, he’s there for Sophie at all times even when she thinks that she doesn’t need him. But I think he underestimated her at times, she was capable of a lot more than he originally thought. But can we blame him for withholding certain things from her, he only wanted to protect her from her and his own demons. The secondary characters were great too, Boo and Trei were there usual selves. And we got to know some new characters like Evan and Ava. The only one I missed in this book were Alex and Adrienne, and I’m wondering what they were up to the entire book.
Sun Poisoned was quite dark and touches on a lot of deep emotions. At a certain point I even felt like crying. And Sophie had to make so many though choices, I would never want to be in her place. But don’t worry there were plenty of sweet and funny moments too. I would recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a good paranormal read.
