As to blood-Ah, blood, the whole subject fascinates me. I do like that as well, warm and dripping, when I am thirsty. And I am often thirsty…
Alisa has been in control of her urges for the five thousand years she has been a vampire. She feeds but does not kill, and she lives her life on the fringe to maintain her secret. But when her creator returns to hunt her, she must break her own rules in order to survive. Her quest leads her to Ray. He is the only person who can help her; he also has every reason to fear her. Alisa must get closer to him to ensure her immortality. But as she begins to fall in love with Ray, suddenly there is more at stake than her own life…
Last month, I started reading the first bind-up of Thirst, which includes The Last Vampire, Black Blood and Red Dice. I was quite disappointed. I had heard so many good comments about this book, that I was really excited to read it. Maybe that’s why I was expecting more. It took me a week to read the first two parts. I had no will to read the third one, as I had just bought many other books. Two days ago, I decided to pick it up and finish it. I actually liked the third part. Maybe it is because I expected less, but I enjoyed reading it. It is still not on my favorite list, but now I want to read the second and third book.
One of the things I didn’t like about the story was the main character. There are characters that you love to hate, but I just ended up hating her. I really wished I could have liked her, but everything about her got on my nerves. The way she expressed herself and acted seemed to me like a bad written character. I hate to say that, because I had read Remember Me by Christopher Pike and had adored it. Unfortunately, the main character really killed it for me. I like the plot, the way he writes things, except his characters.
I’ll try reading the second book, to see if it gets better, and I will review it soon.
Peace, love and lots of books!
