The Last Vampire Review

The Last Vampire by Christopher Pike.
Published in 1994.

Description
For five thousand years Alisa Perne has been living among and off humans. Alisa hunts alone, thinking nobody knows her secret. But someone is stalking her, someone wants her dead.

My Thoughts
I adore this story! I love how they were able to incorporate so much Hindu mythology into it. I found it all so very fascinating, and it made me spend a lot of time looking up all the gods and goddesses mentioned in the story. Great to read and it is not childish in the least. The story chronicles the 5,000 year life of the "last vampire", Sita aka Alisa Perne. I can't recommend strongly enough if you are a fan of vampire literature.

  2. Interesting book. It might be nice to read vampire fiction before the current trend started.
