Ray is adjusting to being a vampire. He is depressed about having to sever contact with his family and friends, and appalled at having to drink human blood. But Ray doesn't have too much time to figure things out. There has been a series of brutal murders in LA. Sita knows a vampire is responsible.
Sita and Ray are going to LA to investigate and look for the one who is creating vampires. The First Vampire, Yaksha, is supposed to be dead. Even if he survived the explosion at Sita's home, he swore a vow to God not to create any more vampires, and to destroy all other vampires. Sita has not made any more. So who is making the vampires?

A new character comes in: FBI agent Joel Gray. In charge of the murder investigation, he zeroes in on Alisa. Will she have to kill this well-meaning man if he gets to close to the truth?

This story is a better read than the first one in the series. A lot more action for one thing, a compelling enemy, and less of Sita musing on what a hottie she is. Pikes writing is a little better. Still, Pike throws in gems like "I like horny men. I feel they are true to their nature." Riiiiight.

alisa and her partner, ray, thought that they were the last vampires. suddenly, however, in one area of the united states, there is a series of brutal murders that can only be the work of other vampires. who created these creatures? how can they be stopped?

I got caught up in Christopher Pike books when my girls were teens. now they are adults, I still grab a quick read every now and then. these are good books. not truly scary, but great for the young adult

Well the second book wasn't much different than the first. I continue to see why teens might enjoy this book, yet I'm still waiting for the characters to develop. Sita's story continues to travel from past to present, from dreams and memories to present day. Her character has steadily developed, but not by much.

I'm a bit disappointed by how the secondary characters are killed off so easily. Just when I began to like a new character I'm dismayed to find out they're expendable and won't be around for long. It makes reading on hard when you have no common characters carried over.

Again I can see why teens might like this series, but I'm the kind of person who likes characters to develop. Well I'll keep trying....

I considered this series Pike's best work but for a "horror" author that writes mediocre books for young adults I'm not really sure if thats a compliment or not.
