Laurie - I read this several times, trying to decide whether or not to buy
it for our Young Adult area  (I did, a few.)  McKinley did that thing that
annoyed me with Rose Daughter - she seems to have discovered baking as a
hobby and tells us almost more about it than we can stand (in Rose Daughter,
it was rose cultivation.)  What I found the most interesting - the
background.  I want more about the Voodoo Wars, more about the different
magic-using families, etc.  The double romance between Sunshine and vampire
and Sunshine and biker guy was just not that interesting to me, but the
whole world was.
