Since Thirst is a combination of 3 books in 1 I have decided to split my review up to each book. The first book is called, The Last Vampire. What an awesome start!
The Last Vampire is about a 5 thousand year old woman vampire named Sita, AKA Alisa Perne AKA Lara Adams, for obvious reasons Sita has to change her name quite often. Sita is being investigated by a P.I. but the private detective goes further into the depths of Sita's life landing himself in one hot mess. Making Sita mad is not a good thing. As events move forward Sita befriends 2 boys, one happening to be the P.I.'s son. After years of Sita closing herself off and not loving, Sita finds herself falling in love. Dealing with the memories of her tragic past is hard to bear alone, loving Sita changes ones future forever. Her tragic past has been haunting her for the last 5 thousand years but catches up with her just at the moment of her loving again. Sita goes through everything to protect her new found love.
I loved Sita's character, she is a kick butt , beautiful, strong and sarcastic girl. Also so full of herself, which would be expected from a 5 thousand year old vampire. Who has seen it all. Loved how this book is in 3 parts because the ending of The Last Vampire, leaves you on a hanger. So onto Black Blood!
So far Part 1 of Thirst No1 I give 5 stars. Loving it, cannot wait to read the rest. Christoper Pike is not your typical vampire author. His characters are exciting, fresh, creative. Sita is not burnt by the sun, crosses don't hurt her. In fact she seems to fit right in to a high school apart that she has millions of dollars. LOL She eats regular food, her heart still beats. Very clever! Put this on your must read list!
