A bloodthirsty harlot she may be…
Author Nat Edwards (who masquerades as TC Parker) returns to join hosts Cassie, Becca, and Cooper on The PikeCast to discuss Christopher Pike's 1994 novel, and the first in a series, The Last Vampire, an Interview With the Vampire for teens that doesn't forget the brutal blood and guts, as well as delving into a whole new mythology and origin for vampires.
This time someone is hunting her…
Alisa Perne is a five-thousand-year-old vampire. For ages she has hunted humanity, loved humanity, but now someone hunts her. Who is this person— what is he or she? Another vampire? Alisa is not sure. She thought she
was the last of her kind.
Alisa has only one lead to follow. A detective, Mike Riley, has tried to blackmail her. In haste, before she could learn everything he knew, she killed him. Now she must go after the detective's son and find out what his father knew. Fifty centuries ald, and she must enter high school and befriend Ray Riley, a handsome, shy boy who will attract her like no mortal has in centuries. Ray will make Alisa think the unthinkable, to make another of her kind, something she hasn't done since ancient times.
Will Alisa use Ray to help protect her from the mysterious enemy? Or will she just use him as bait?
