Creatures of Forever

Tears roll over my face. I touch them with my quivering tongue. They are clear and salty, not dark and bloody. Another sign that I am human.

What Alisa has desired for five thousand years has finally come true: She is once again human. But now she is defenseless, vulnerable, and, for the first time in centuries, emotional. As

I thought this book was interesting but it annoyed me.
Sita was constantly saying she the the best fighter, the strongest creature on earth, faster then anyone else, ect, but when ever she got into a fight with someone who wasnt human, she got her ass kicked.
And Again.
Not only that, but her emotions were disjointed and her thought patterns erratic at best.
I liked this book because it seemed differnt from the current trend of teen vampire books, but it was a dissapointment as although i

This book surprised me. I liked it better than the first because it incorporated more of the philosophy and faith elements of Hindi beliefs, especially via the daughter, Kalika, who represents Kali Ma. The first book was full of cliffhangers to keep you turning pages. It had quick action and kick-butt vampire violence with humor. This one, however, has more of Alisa / Sita's inner thoughts. She has to figure things out and despite more powers, she also seems more vulnerable because of her blindn ...more

As I said with my review of "Thirst No. 1", I am happy The Last Vampire series is being republished. For me, Sita is the original kick ass vampire, and this series will always be my favorite in young adult vampire fiction. I read it when it was first published in 1996, and now in 2009-2010, it has withstood the test of time for me. And what's more, I feel it can be read at different levels depending on your age and interests. Especially in "Thirst No. 2," Pike introduces many New Age concepts an ...more

I loved this book so friken much. This author captures me every single time! SOOOO much stuff happens in this book! Sita has her baby, which only took five days to go through nine months of pregnacy! But the catch is the father is a demon mirage... (wierd right!) and her daughter is really the goddess of all of the dead. Sita also makes a friend who is the mother to the next Jesus! And her mission is to protect him (super intense). But while doing so she runs into one of her old enemy's from the ...more

This book was astonishing and not in a good way. There were so many things happening that it was hard to keep up. I would give 1.5 stars, but I can't do that, so I will give it a 1.

The first book ended with Sita/Alisa going through a transformation to become human and in the beginning of thirst #2, we see that the transformation has worked. Alisa/Sita is indeed human once again and wants to regain that life and do the things that she missed out on.

Well, I liked the books in this series much more than the books grouped in Thirst #1. Sita became a human again at the start of this book and with becoming human also seemed to start to have honest emotions - feelings of love, empathy, forgiveness. I liked her progression in this book BUT...the plot went some very strange places. Some I liked - I liked the ongoing discussion in this book about religion, faith, and spirituality. Some of the insights in this book made me think so I can imagine how ...more

While not Anne Rice, this series is great and definitely beats out Twilight by a long mile. It's geared for a slightly younger audience than Anne Rice's books, and I read it when I was in that target audience. This book impressed me a lot. The story is believable and engaging (with the usual suspension of belief that is needed to enjoy a vampire story) though the method of vampire-making - pressing cut wrists together - didn't work for me because it'd be quite sloppy, or so it seems to me. Still ...more

Recommends it for: any one who loves vampire books nd teenage drama
This book is amazing! It is about a teenage girl who is named Alisa who is now a mother who has a child named Kalika. She was once a vampire and became human. You can't really say you'd love this book if u haven't read part 1. Kalika loves her mother until she grew up. They face life as if it is just a game board were eliminating a piece is no big deal, Nothing matters to them unless the people have effected their life someway. But more trouble occurs when not only is she effected, her family an ...more

All 3 books I've read have melded into one big story in my mind, as is usual for me with series. So I will put this as the review on all 3.

It bothered me that just because Alisa/Sita is 5000 years old, she seems incapable of emotions, except when they suit her or as a means to an end. Sure, she is or was relatively solitary, but would basic human emotions be so easily forgotten? And what did she do before the books began, didn't she ever come into contact with humans, except to feed?

Can't say that much about the details of this book without going into spoilers. Overall I'll say that it was pretty decent, all around, some of the twists were kind of meh, and it mostly continue to set-up the scene for the end.

Last night I had a thought about this series in comparison to a TV show. It's like one of the shows that has a main arc that encompasses the whol season, and each episode, while having little stand-alone bits in every episode, really are all just layi
"The Last Vampire 4: Phantom"

After five thousand years, Sita/Alisa is finally human again. And pregnant. But will it be an angel or a demon?

With the introduction of Kali/Kalika the reader may make hasty judgements as to her purpose in being born. Indeed, exactly what kind of creature can be conceived from the womb of a vampire? It is interesting to watch Sita's daughter grow and interact with society--leaving you wondering what she might be or do.

Perhaps it's the undercurrent of Eastern philosop

Excerpt from my review - originally published at Offbeat YA.

Pros: Original take on vampires. Plenty of kickass action and funny (if often bloody) moments. Blends urban fantasy with thriller, history, and more than anything, Eastern spirituality.
Cons: Requires more suspension of disbelief than Book 1. The blend of UF and sci-fi may not work for everyone.
WARNING! Abundance of blood, gore and violence.
Will appeal to: Those looking for a fresh approach to vampires, in what was probably the very fir

Tears roll over my face. I touch them with my quivering tongue. They are clear and salty, not dark and bloody. Another sign that I am human.

What Alisa has desired for five thousand years has finally come true: She is once again human. But now she is defenseless, vulnerable, and for the first time in centuries, emotional. As she attempts to reconcile her actions as a vampire with her new connection to humanity, she begins to understand the weight of life-and-death dec

As I wrote in my review for "Thirst no.1" I made it very clear that I absolutely loved the book and many wise ideas that went into it. This book may have dropped one star but I still appreciated the details and plot of the story. "Phantom" was a little dissapointing to me at first. After changing herself back into a human, Alisa finds her love reincarnated, Ray, is back alive. This was a welcome twist in the story, and after reading she was pregnant I started to sense another game-changer in thi ...more

Christopher Pike wrote this book to be the last of the series. Or so we thought. (Check my upcoming review of Thirst No.3). This book is made up of Phantom, Evil Thirst, and Creatures are Forever.
At the end of No.1, Sita makes herself human (with the help of an alchemist from her past). While she is impregnated by a demon mirage (I know... really strange) and gives birth to a daughter (5 days after she is impregnated (strange).

Glued this book to my hand! Love the mythology and incorporating of fiction and religion, if you enjoyed this the Vampire Huntress Legend books are for you (more grown up and graphic though, just a word of caution). Sita has changed, morphed loved and lost for 5000 years and with her friends and enemies all around, she's more bad @ss than ever. So many twists and turns that it keeps you rivited (speaking of the entire series here). With a daughter who may be an enemy, or may save the world Sita ...more

I love this series, it had such a surprise ending that i have no idea what the direction of #3 will be.
The only thing that can be a little much in these books is the spritualism with her strong beliefs and visions of Krishna which give her guidance but how it ties in with the darker "alien" forces is a little wierd. I know that the spritualism ties in with the overall plot but hopefully as the series goes it will become more clear.

Thirst2 is a book about a girl named Alisa Perne. She is a vampire who is struggling to survive in this world becasue she is the only vampire alive. She leaves behind her her helper Seymour in order to go on a journey. She is a 29 year old woman at heart and in her looks but truly she is thousands of years old. Alisa is a woman who has to go back to her past and try to make it right.

The message in this book is that if you believe in yourself hard enough you can prevail. Alisa had to believe in

In this book Alisa finds out what it means to be mortal again. She faces many challenges ahead of herself. The most important being, she is defenseless against other paranormal creatures. Alisa/Sita has a hard time accepting the fact that she is mortal but each and every day she tries until one day she finds out she is pregnant with a baby girl. When the baby is born she drinks blood, not milk like human babies do.

I really can't say I was all that happy with the direction this book took with her

Ok there were plenty of parts during this one that had me confused at times. But still it intrigued me completely that it took all of my time or most of it when I had a free time to read. Sita, with her powers and gifts of love she's been given, I think is still selfish in some ways. Granted her whole life has been one huge adventure after another, and death after death. But she has also done good in her life. Met a whole line of wonderful friends along the way whether she has lost them or not. ...more

This book strayed a little from the normal Sita roller-coaster that I've grown accustomed to, but I liked it anyway! Instead of all the mythological crap with Krishna that somewhat bores me, there was more action and thoughts filtered in. I liked getting into Sita's head a little more and the introducing the Array and Telar was ingenious! All the bad guys hunting Sita and the twist with "The Abomination" was amazing! The ending left me grabbing book 4 off my night stand and reading well into the ...more

I loved this book but I'm not sure how I feel about the ending. I don't see how there are two more books in the series. I'm a little upset at how it ended. I have to say these are the very first Christopher Pike books I've read and the man can write!! I've have felt every human emotion while reading this series and I've only read the first two books so far. I can't wait to purchase the Thirst NO. 3 and NO. 4. Kudos to Christopher Pike!! I look forward to reading more of his work! :-)

If you enjoyed Thirst 1 you will like this one. More action, more blood, more stories from her past. The ending to this really shocked me! I'm wondering what more needs to be written in this series though for there to be a Thirst 3 nevertheless I'll read it when it comes out. This book turned a little sci-fi towards the end but Pike makes it works
