I should have known when he walked into my life that things would never be the same. Hadn't I dreamed of him and the things he'd done before I was born? If only he weren't so fascinating, so beautiful, so much more than any other guy. Maybe then I could walk away.

 Mairin Cote is a magnet for weird. Her dreams come true, she can see auras and her mother is in love with an angel. Now the mosters are finding her too. Vampires, demigods and werepanthers have flocked to this small town girl who must find a way to keep her family safe, love the man of her dreams, and navigate the shark-infested waters of Highland Home High School.

Jody on Goodreads
Mourning Sun is perfect for Twilight and vampire romance fans. It is written with the same feel of twilight and shares some of the common themes of the genre. I love to re-read and look for books whose characters connect with me. I think if you enjoyed Twilight and want to read something similar this book is for you. Mourning Sun takes place in Highland Home near the east coast. Mairin is the outcast at high school with a few close friends and the bottom of the high school food chain. Her Dad died in a car wreck that she dreamed of before it happened. She dreams of Mathias as a vampire before he moves to Highland Home. Mathias is drawn to Mairin and chooses to be with her crowd and her rather than the golden ones of the high school. Mairin sees auras and can see that Mathias is good and pure by his clear golden aura. Despite her disturbing dreams, she is drawn to Mathias and cannot deny her fascination with his choice to be near her. Her family and friends warn her that Mathias is dangerous and she denies her attraction and growing love for him. This is interesting to me because what would happen if the girl doesn't pick the vampire? Mourning Sun explores this question as Mairin wrestles with her feelings and everyones opinions. There are all types of supporting characters from Mairin's family and schoolmates that explore even more paranormal types. I don't want to spoil the ending but I recommend this for all fans of the genre who enjoy paranormal romance

My Rating: ★★★★☆

Mairin Cote is accustomed to weird. Her mother and her angelic partner run a metaphysical store, she has dreams full of premonition, and now she is seeing auras around everyone. Her world is still rocked when the gorgeous, charming Mathias walks into her life. Soon she realizes the world is full of all sorts of monsters, besides the ones she faces every day in the halls of her hometown high school.

I received an electronic copy of Mourning Sun for review. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! Although quite short, the story was fantastic. It didnít take long for me to be completely absorbed in Mairinís life. It isnít an entirely original concept, but the way Richardson writes it, with the little twists and turns, makes it fresh and exciting. I love the way she so cleverly worked certain real-life issues into the story, such as homosexuality and bullying. Even the decision Mairin must make regarding Mathias could be applied metaphorically to so many other situations in real life.

There were a few instances where I caught a little error here and there, or where I felt a little bit of editing could have cleaned something up a tiny bit. Overall, however, it was a very well written work. The plot was solid and everything flowed perfectly. The characters all had good chemistry even if the situations were rather awkward.

I appreciate the conciseness of the book, but I can see where the author could have really expanded and probably made it at least twice as long. I cannot really complain, however. It truly was a nice fluffy little read for me to devour on this dark, rainy day. I almost cried when it ended; I wanted to know so much more! I am enthusiastically looking forward to the next installment.

I definitely recommend Mourning Sun, and I want to thank Shari for being so generous and giving me the opportunity to review her book!
