Sunshine Griffith can communicate with ghosts. Even more amazing—to herself; her boyfriend, Nolan; and her adoptive mom, Kat—she’s recently learned she’s a luiseach, one of an ancient race of creatures who have lived among humans for centuries, protecting them from dark spirits and helping them move on to the afterlife. Having survived an abyss full of demons, Sunshine Griffith must figure out who—or what—has been organizing the forces of darkness against her. Do they want to destroy her and the rest of the endangered luiseach? Do they want to take over the world? Nolan has figured out that Sunshine’s death would trigger a calamitous event, so not only does she have to stay alive for herself, but for the fate of civilization. It’s not just the demons who want Sunshine dead, though. Her biological mother, Helena, is back. And what is Helena’s history with the mysterious man in black? Fortunately for Sunshine, she has a lot of people (and ghosts) to help her stop the darkness: Nolan, her father and mentor Aidan, her mom Kat, Victoria, Lucio, Anna, and Ashley—whose handsome new crush, Sebastian, seems hauntingly familiar. But time may be running out as an unexpected event unleashes a fierce war between the luiseach and the demon army. In the midst of the fiery battle, Sunshine will learn a shocking truth about herself and what sort of sacrifice is required to save the world.

Satisfying Ending to a Great Trilogy

As the last book in the Haunting of Sunshine Girl trilogy, The Sacrifice of Sunshine Girl is definitely one to remember. This is the peak of Sunshine's journey, the reason for all of her training. This is what the first two books were building up to, and I am not disappointed.

Sunshine is back in school and more determined than ever to get this right. The darkness that has been following her, that has grown and struck many towns in the last few weeks? It is almost ready to strike, and Sunshine is trying her best to figure out a way to beat it. Through terrifying ghost encounters, new hope for the luiseach race, and perhaps a relationship with a certain biological mother, as well as betrayal, Sunshine goes through many trials that test her strength and endurance. Each time she bounces back stronger and with more knowledge. But she can't help but doubt herself when it comes to defeating the man in charge of the demons. He can kill her, and easily so. Being scared won't help her however, so Sunshine rises up and defeats all odds. She is a great character and she is so strong and brave in this book!

The writing is still very lovely. It flows well, makes for a quick read, and makes it hard to put the book down! I didn't want to stop reading. This is a book that will slither into your thoughts constantly when you're not reading it. You will want to keep reading until you reach the end. Intriguing and paired with a pot set up to make you jump from the edge of your seat, this is a novel you will fly through. However, I did find some things were mentioned continuously, almost every chapter. Sunshine seemed fascinated with the fact that she took energy when she was born which resulted in a lot of death, and she seems to remind herself of it every chance she gets. This managed to drag the story slightly.

Overall, this is a quick, enjoyable read full of adventure, sacrifices, and defeating evil. Ghosts, demons, and a whole lot of chaos will keep you in the world until the very last word.
