The first several chapters are a little slow for me, since they're having long, informative conversations. Then they start to get interesting, and action starts to play out. I was dissappointed that Ren was barley in the book. In fact, he was only in one chapter! :( Even though Ren is seldom there, Calla is still torn between Shay and him. There's also a big secret that isn't revealed until the end that will probably effect the next book and put Ren back into the picture. At first I didn't want Calla to be with Shay because I just wasn't sold on him, but after this book I'm as torn as Calla. There are several new characters, who are specifically Searchers. Putting them in this book has taught me a lot more about them, the Guardians, and Keepers. One of the searchers, Adne, still seems mysterious to me... There definatley is something about her you'll find out that she doesn't even know about till the end, but I think there's more that will be revealed in the next book. I loved the ending. It will pretty much leave you feeling the same way in the ending of the last book with questions on your mind of what would happen next. I had a little more trouble getting into this book than I did in the first, but overall it was a great read. ...more

I know the ending to Thirst #2 probably made you think that there couldn't possibly be another book. I though so too. Sita never really died, that was just Seymour writing his books. Seymour and Sita have this this strange telepathic bond that is hard to explain. Therefore they have never truly met in real life. The book doesn't start slow like most books do, it's instant action throughout the book. Although there are some long conversations that some may find boring. I also found myself getting confused in some of the long conversations. There are so many new characters throughout each book that I forget who's who and have to go back and re-read. There are many surprises as to who someone's true identity really is and the unexpected always happens. There's always a time in the book where you ask yourself, "How the hell is Sita gonna get herself out of this?" And she does and it's always a true shocker. The epilogue of this book is from Seymour's perspective, but I'm not sure if it's him writing or just his point-of-view. There is a big surprise at the end that you will never guess. I don't like what has happened to Sita at the end, but that's just my opinion you may think otherwise.
The whole book had me engaged so it was hard to put it down. I read this whole book in three days! The way Christopher Pike thinks is just so unique and out of the ordinary. This is definatley a vampire book that can not compare to others.
