The story begins with Fear & Sunshine: Prelude, a look into the past as Dominick and Delilah Darksmith welcome their daughter into the world. But their happiness is short lived when Fear, the greatest creation of Darksmith comes to claim what he believes is rightfully his.

Seven years later, Sunshine, raised by her foster parents, Salvo and Flora Saliente, learns of her dark past and the darker future that lays in wait. Alongside Death and her yellow-eyed aunt, Constance Adora, Fear & Sunshine, the second illustrated novel of the series, tells the story as Sunshine has to travel into an unknown world to bring back the business of Darksmith Manor.

The Fear & Sunshine saga continues with ZomBeans, a game for iOS and Android. After an accident in the Darksmith laboratory, an outbreak of undead beans is unleashed on the world. It’s up to Sunshine to use her trusty cannon and ridiculously large supply of spare brains to deal with it!
