Pike re-imagines the vampire legend, giving us vampires who are more powerful, more sophisticated and more dangerous than those in other teen-vampire books. Sita has lived and loved well throughout her life, and because of these vast experiences she is proficient in everything human--from our arts to our weapons to our hearts and souls, Sita is an expert. And that is good, because she'll need these skills to resist those who know what she is. Once they have her powers they intend to kill her. But even after five-thousand years, Sita is not ready to die. She still has too much to love.
Pike's best character EVER. The master of horror at his absolute peak--this is more than a vampire series, it is a dance with the spiritual side of life and death.
I was absolutely THRILLED to see this anthology at Borders! I have not been - nor will I allow myself to be - sucked into the world of "Sparkling Vampires". (Vampires don't "sparkle"...) I picked up this anthology less than 48 hours ago and am about 1/4 of the way into the third book, "Red Dice". Admittedly, I'd forgotten much of the storyline as it has been 15+ years since I first read the series, but it has been an absolute page turner. The storyline is so simple, yet very powerful. The characters come to life. And, as it is written entirely in first person, it is a refreshing change from the other series of books I'm working my way though.
Bearing in mind that this book was written for TEENS, I think it is EXCELLENT. And, as it was originally released in 1994, it WELL pre-dates the whole "trampire" genre that is out there now. If you want to see vampires kicking butt, taking names, and drinking blood, then this book is for you!!
