Sunshine in darkness was such a thrill to read. The story was completely original. It was refreshing to read a book that was not just another rendition of something I've read already. I give sunshine in darkness 5 stars!


This review is from: Sunshine in Darkness (Kindle Edition)
4.5 stars

Sunshine in Darkness drew me in from the first page and I didn't want to let go even at the end.

I found myself caring for Sunshine more than I expected. Her life has been torn apart by this intruder that has stolen her body. When she does get her body back, it's only to find herself being thrown into a mental institution for her crazy story about demon intruders. I was heartbroken to find out that her new sort of captivity comes with even more intruders hell bent on ruining the last shred of sanity Sunshine has left.

I can't believe the places Beth took her characters. I was both shocked and thrilled that Sunshine was no push over. At first, she is lost, not knowing how to work her body and live this new life, but she finds her strength within her new prison. She also finds friendship with the most unlikely people.

I was rooting for Sunshine the whole time, even when it seemed like all hope was lost. I was surprised how emotionally involved I got in the story. I was yelling at the pages as Sunshine's mom left her in that horrible place, and the intruders were so vicious, I had to put the book down to gain my composure again. I love books that make me feel so involved, so troubled and excited at the same time.

This YA Paranormal story took me through a rollercoaster of emotions and I loved every minute of it. I was so happy with how everything turned out. The writing was well done and the pacing was good. This is the kind of book you can't put down for long. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, February 20, 2013
I bought this book because it was in the free books for Kindle and because the story sounded promising. From the very first page, I was totally sucked in. Winokur knows how to keep the audience engaged and wondering what's going to happen to Sunshine through the
entire journey we take with this delicate little spirit who finds her inner strength and place in the world. I was very surprised with the twist in the storyline (don't worry I won't spoil it) and I was left wanting to know how Sunshine would continue her life and what happened to other characters in the book. I recommend this to anyone who loves paranormal stories and empowering stories about people who find their light when they're surrounded by nothing but darkness.

This is probably one of the first demon possession book that I have read. I didn't really know what to expect at first but that doesn't matter because it has a way of helping attach us to Sunshine/Rose right of the beginning from where she tries to reclaim her body. Her struggles and the feeling of desperation to reclaim her life just makes us root for her. And when she gets back her body, her life turns around and as she tries to cope with everything around her, I couldn't help but to read on and on. Its gripping and the attachment to her made me want to know more and more what happens around the corner as things start spiraling out of control.
I loved it! It was fun and suspenseful! :)
