5th sentence, 74th page: Perhaps he was drawn towards the gate with a thrill, excited by what lay ahead.
Is the draw of sunlight worth the risk of death? Someone thinks so… and he’s about to risk it all just to get a little more tanned…
This was a cute, easy little read. Two vampires catching up, remembering the sunlight. One has found a way to enjoy it… but it’s an experiment, one that he needs help with.
Alright, so there isn’t a happy ending for the first vampire (that would open WAY too many stories to the idea of vampires who could handle a little sunlight). But it did remind me of issues of addiction, highlighted how the loss of something such as sunlight is kind of horrific, and no matter what you claim, it is difficult to fully let go of its power in your life.
Really, this story reminded me of just how much I love sunlight. And I sit here writing this review, with the morning sun streaming through my window and freshening up my house and my soul.
