Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thirst 4 The best book out of all 4 books! It was inturging and so much more different then the first 3. In the book The main vampire is in a different body and trying to take out the Telar and the IIC! She discovers the ending of all endings. And its a really neat way to protray death. I was hooked from start to finish :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pt 2 I know I promised this a long time ago but I've been busy... this book was absolutly amazing the ending kinda killed me that it ended that way!!! I hate when books end with the main character being dead ! I still loved it up to that I just wish she'd seen that shanti was the light bearer earlier and not been weak in teri's body but the same old sita and told matt earlier. Enough about the negative...I think it really ties into the previous stories 'cause usually the books in a series change so much topic wise and character wise but this stayed on course and on the same story continuously

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aw, its over :( I started this book so excited. I knew how amazing the previous 3 were, but there was something that just didn't do it for me in this book. I love the history of Krishna and the power of Sita. She revived back into Teri's body and she was this weak vampire. I fell in love with the books because of how strong, confident and powerful Sita was. I didn't like seeing her go blind with thirst as a young vampire and being clumsy and uncoordinated. There was a lot of history about the Array and the IIC and the cradle. It was very confusing! The ending was alright. I kind of predicted it and it took a long time for Sita to put the pieces of the puzzle together. The children of The Craddle reminded me of children of the corn. At least now I know that this ending was final and there will not be any other continuations. Well done Christopher, I applaud you for a great series. Well worth my time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from phnomanal ok so just so you know I havn't read this yet but I will in the next few days and right another review now I'm going to tell you what I thought of the first three and what I think's going to happen:first of all I think christopher pike is an AMAZINg writer and I'm aloud to say that because I've read most of his work! second of all the first three of the series are writen extremly well, this series is one of the few series I've read where the all three are all amazing instead of,like the hunger games, the fist is great, the second good, and the third disapointing! judging on the first three I think the fourth will be phonomanal! What I'm pedicting will happen in the fourth is that after CAREFULL consideration sita(in the body of teri) will join the ICC to defeat the telar in an epic battle with rivers of blood shed and at lest ONE of her inner circle will be dead in the end:( hopefully I'm incredably wrong and they'll all survive:) but to continue I'd just like to point out that I will read the reviews if you'd like to use them to answer to my review, if you'd like to add or take away something just leave another review. Also in the end considering sita's in the body of 'Matt's' life's love's body that in the end the last vampire will either fall in love with matt or be forced to kill him 'cause he's part telar. let's see what I have to say after I've read it and don't forget to comment with another review!!!

Read from the Book

ONE I hug Seymour and whisper in his ear. “It’s me, Sita. I’m still here. I’m in Teri’s body.” Seymour Dorsten does not know how to respond. I can’t blame the guy since I’m basically telling him that I have just reenacted the resurrection and risen on the third day, if it has in fact been three days since Matt shot me in the chest. I’m not too sure of the date. The last few days have been a blur. Sometimes I felt like Teri, other times I thought I was Sita. But most of the time I felt as if I was wandering lost in a twilight realm without any clear sense of self. One thing is for sure: Even though I did technically die, I never went to heaven. I never saw Krishna, which weighs heavily on my heart. I’m not sure I’m happy to be alive again. When I threw myself in front of the laser beam that was about to slice Seymour in half, and shouted out to Krishna, I believed deep in my soul that I would soon see my Lord. That didn’t happen. Indeed, I don’t know what happened. I have no memory whatsoever of what occurred immediately after I got shot. Nevertheless, I’m grateful to John, Paula’s son. It was only after the funeral ceremony, when John took my hands and gazed into my eyes, that my confusion lifted and my personality crystallized. With his help, I’m myself again, except for the rather important fact that I’m no longer in the body I was born with. Where is Teri, I wonder? How di
