Grade 9 Up?A generally entertaining yarn about a lovely, 5,000-year-old vampire. Sita had thought that she and her companion, Ray, were the last vampires on Earth. However, a murderer who favors dismembering and draining the blood of his victims is stalking Los Angeles, and Sita realizes that her assumption is incorrect. Only she has the power to stop this creature from his evil path?but he's much stronger than she expected, and she finds herself in a life-and-death struggle. Occasionally the narrative digresses to discuss Sita's dreams and visions of her original life in India eons ago in an effort to lend spiritual purpose to her actions; this comes across as a somewhat obvious attempt to link the tale to legitimate mythology. Overall, though, Pike's fans should enjoy the story immensely. Sita is a clever and resourceful heroine and the story is infused with slyly appealing humor.?Mary Jo Drungil, Niles Public Library District, IL
