Best. Vampire. Ever.
She is a force to be reckoned with. And she's the very last vampire. Or is she?
If you like your vampires experienced, fierce, beautiful, and deadly, you won't be disappointed. If you only care about old vampires chasing teenagers, stay away. Here we have a serious, fascinating, but imperfect vampire with a history worth telling.
And I LIKE the way she talks. She is very serious and concise most of the time (as an ancient vampire should be), with an unexpected sense of humor at times.
My 13-year old reader leaves me notes inside these books. This one simply said "LOVE This Book!!!"
Read all the "Thirst" books, starting with #1. Each of the books (1,2,3...) is actually a collection of 3 books previously published separately in the 1980s by Christoper Pike, a popular author of young adult fare. These are large paperbacks, and you get your money's worth.
I borrowed this from a friend since I had a shortage of books to read. The plot grabbed me instantly but it quickly fizzled out for me. I felt so sorry for Sita. I mean can't this girl catch a break! It quit reading After her second love interest in the present time got killed. I finally picked it back up and finished it. It was okay and since my friend has the second book I'm willing to give it another chance.
I admit to having had no experience with Pike's wrwiting until this book, and I admit it took me some time to get through this book. The stories are good, and the way he goes from one to the next flows well, I can't truly say why it took me so long to read this one, much less the 2nd one. It is a different look at vampires and how they are made and such, so I will give him kudos for creativity with an old subject matter.
