{Synopsis} – The terrifying sequel to The Last Vampire. Alisa Perne is a 5,000-year-old vampire. She and her partner, Ray, thought they were the last of their breed, but suddenly they are confronted by a series of brutal murders that could only have been caused by others like them.

{My thoughts} – This book was interesting I suppose. It helped to explain what happened to Sita and Ray at the end of the last book. It also helped to introduce new characters and elaborate some more on the old. All and all it wasn’t a bad read but I believe it could have been better.

Sita – She is completely nieve in this book. Actually she probably was in the first and I just overlooked it. She seems to do what she wants even though others tell her not to do something. She has a mind of her own and she honestly doesn’t seem to care who she hurts in the process.

Ray – He makes an appearance in the beginning of the book which helps to show a true testament of love between him and Sita.

Yaksha – He is discovered in an old ice cream truck where he talks Sita into drinking the rest of his blood while he dies. Then she is asked to get rid of his body where no one will ever find it. He is a character that trule stuck me as manipulative and self centered in the first book. However, in this one he seems to have a softer side as well as still having the desire to fight for what is right as opposed to what is wrong.

Krishna – He makes Sita promise not to make any more vampires, however she goes against him in fear that she has no other choice and thinks she is doing the right thing. This causes conflict between them. However, she does use a song that He once sang as a means of saving her life.

Joel – He is an FBI agent asigned to a case where vampires are causing lots of trouble. Little does he know that he will soon be entrapped by none other then Sita herself. Like Ray – Joel becomes putty in her hands.

Eddie – He is an aweful person that had discovered what Yaksha was. He also had an odd relationship with his mother. He truly has the serial killer personality and the boy with mommy or daddy issues on his side. He is portrayed as a complete crazy guy and it seems to work well for him.

Seymour – He appears to be Sita’s main voice of reason. When she has a problem or needs help she seems to turn to him.
