I started reading the first book and had fallen in love with Alisa by the time i had finished the first chapter.I find her character to be very inspiring and deep. Alisa/Sita is a 5000 year old vampire, sometimes you forget that she looks like an 18 year old the way she is protraid in the book. She is extremely powerful and yet gets her ass handed to her on a number of occasions too. It is interesting when Pike gives her so many flaws, showing just how vulnerable she can be regardless of her age and power.
i love how deep her character is writen.no matter how loving or cruel she is I have alwasys found myself cheering her on. She is the "oldest living creature on earth" and still can seem as lost as any human. I am very fond of the style of writing and the story is bad ass too.
I just love these books all around. 5 Stars straight up. oh and by the way i am not a teenager, i am 32 years old and would still enjoy reading them to this day.
These first two books are a great start to the series and i would recommend this book if you are into vampires in a different light. If you decide you dont like who she is then dont bother with the rest of the books. If you do, you are in for a treat, there are up to 8 of these books and I find them all fantastic.
