{Synopsis} – Alisa has spent the past five thousand years as a vampire, living alone and fighting for survival. In her loneliness, Alisa cannot resist bringing Teri—a descendant of her human family—into her life. But Alisa is surrounded by death and destruction, and just by knowing Alisa, Teri’s life is at risk.

Alisa’s guilt grows when she becomes involved in a dangerous conspiracy. A top-secret group knows Alisa’s secret and will stop at nothing to use her powers for their cause. As Alisa desperately tries to protect herself and Teri from the unknown enemy, she discovers a force more powerful and more lethal than anything she has ever seen. Alisa doesn’t know who to trust, who to challenge, or who she will become….

{My thoughts} – I strongly recommend this series. This book like the previous six did not disappoint me. I find it unusual that Pike stopped writing them years ago and then decided to write them all over again. The storyline flows nicely and it doesn’t appear that he had ever stopped writing to begin with.

{When Creatures of Forever Ended} – I was shocked because well Sita died and the story was over – but that made perfect sense for the series to end right there. However – this book goes to show that the previous 6 books were written by Seymour who was telepathically linked to Sita and they had never actually met up to this point. So what he wrote wasn’t completely true – some of it happened and some of it did not — as in Sita did not die at the end of that book – that was just the way he decided to write it.

Sita – She shows her obsessive side in this book. She becomes obsessed with tracking down her lost relatives. She manages to locate one named Teri. Her and Sita look a lot alike. She hires Teri to do some jobs for her.

Seymour – He is a carefree soul. He likes to be around Sita and enjoys her company. He also appears to be completely smitten by her more so then he appeared in the previous books.

Teri – She is apparently a descendant of Sita. She looks like her but she has a better out look on life. She has the ability to run track and she runs fast. In her spare time she likes to write and edit papers for a living.

Matt – He is Teri’s boyfriend and is apparently a descendant of Yaksha.   He is very protective of Teri and only wants what is best for her.

Yaksha – He leaves behind a sort of diary in his legacy that helps Sita to find out how to protect herself – sort of.

The Array –  An evil corporation that is out to destroy all that Sita holds dear.

{Onto This Book} – Seymour and Sita do eventually meet. Sita lives a boring life without any of her lovers available to her so she seeks out distant relatives. She finds Teri a girl that looks a whole lot like her and she hires her to help her with editing of things that she writes – She gets close to Teri and Matt – Teri’s boyfriend. She eventually learns that Matt is the decedent of Yaksha. She then ends up in a mess with an evil corporation that uses something called the array – this allows for the corporation to link them self – if they have a sample of blood – to an individual and more or less cause them vital harm. Sita then learns more about Matt and Yaksha and Matt’s mother. She learns that Matt’s mother was one of the founders of the array and she learns that Matt is a hybrid – vampire/teller. At the end of the book Sita ends up trying to save Teri’s life because she is dying – so she tries to change her into a vampire and Matt retaliates by killing Sita. Matt didn’t kill her intentionally though he was consumed by the array and because of it death occurred. But that’s alright – Sita lives on in Teri’s body according to the last chapter of the book – crazy but true.
I didn’t really like this book as much as the previous two but it was still a nice read and I still plan to read the next in the series.
