    1. Luke

      The Sacred Veil is the fifth and final volume in the Thirst series by Christopher Pike. Altogether, it's the ninth volume.Finished: This book is amazing! I liked how Christopher Pike left the ending open, so we readers can think what happens. Plus, he has said he wants to write more on Sita.08/04/13 - In my opinion, the Thirst books should be under Adult Fiction.07/04/13 - Here is a message that Christopher Pike has posted on Facebook: "Thirst 5, everyone is writing me about Thirst 5. I’m real [...]

      I'm at a loss! I've been reading about Sita since I was 16 years old. This CAN'T be the end. What people don't realize when they look at the cover of this book is that these are NOT teenage vampire books. These are not even CLOSE to what's popped up on the shelves recently. These are adult, smart, thought-provoking and the real deal. The topics brought up in 'The Last Vampire' series, (I won't call it 'Thirst') are what led me to explore certain philosophies and comparative religion. These books [...]

      A summary of my opinion of the series by volume: YAY, yay I suppose, meh, Yay, BOO. What a useless pile of garbage; I fully expected this book to be useless when it was announced because the series has had 3 logical, well-made endings so far and I knew this was pushing Pike’s luck. At least Thirst 3 was relatively justified by the follow-up and greatness of Thirst 4. But there’s not really setup in this book for more stuff; it’s just like…a mishmash of different stories, and Sita being a [...]

      You have got to be kidding me! There is absolutely no way this is the final book, that ending leaves so much to be known. The very corse of who and what Sita is, is just left hanging there. Please Christopher Pike, you must write more!So on to the book as a whole. It was great. These characters are in my top 5 of all time favorites. They really come alive, I have to remind myself every so often that they are not real people. Some may get frustrated with how the story is told, there are so many m [...]

    5. Misty

      3.5-4 stars. It might have been more if I had liked the ending. I really don't know if he is going to write any more of these books and I really hate cliff hanger endings so I really hope there is at least one more to let me know what happens to all these people. I did really like how all the different religions were pulled together throughout this series and have enjoyed the books. I just would have liked one more chapter for closure if there isn't going to be another book in the seriesif there [...]

      There’s a fellow Christopher Pike fan I’ve gotten to know while working at the bookstore. I emailed him recently with my thoughts on Thirst No. 5: The Sacred Veil. As I was typing, I realized I could use it as my review so here it is:I just finished Thirst 5. I literally OMG'ed when I reached the end. I may have told you The Last Vampire series has never been a particular favorite of mine but over the years I have grown to become fond of Sita (and Seymour!) Our 5000+ year old heroine puts ot [...]

      I "friended" Christopher Pike on Facebook. This was an important move, because for the first part of reading "Thirst No. 5: The Sacred Veil" I thought, perhaps, just maybe, Pike had a ghost writer. I felt bad for thinking this, but the book felt a little different compared to the others -- actually, the last three (the newest ones) felt that way to me.But, I guess, after leaving a story lie for years and then picking them back up, the voice may come back just a TAD bit different. Maybe? I don't [...]

      It's no dream.At last the truth of what happened during those hellish days has come back to her.In her five thousand years as a vampire, Alisa - or Sita, as she was originally called - has experienced the equivalent of fifty lifetimes. Every moment of her immortal life is seared deep into her being. Every person she has loved, every victim she has killed - their faces are forever part of her.Yet, strangely, a handful of memories have been lost to Alisa. As she and her friends embark on a search [...]

      I really wanted to like this book. But there was way too much spiritual nonsense in it. The ending always seem to come down to one thing: the night Sita was made a vampire. Repeatedly. Everything always goes back to the past. There was barely anything NEW. I thought the fight against the Telar was great, but this book just went downhill from the beginning.

    12. Wendsline

      Holy Shit i just pissed in my pants I HAD NO IDEA THERE WAZ GOING TO BE A 5th ONEo.k i must throw a party for this :DDD

    13. Wolf (Alpha)

      Amazing. I will make sure to look for more of Christopher Pike's books. I feel bad for Sita. since she had to kill her only daughter. I really like Sita and I think that it was an amazing thing that she was turned into a vamp. I liked this book a lot. I can't believe that this is the end on the series though.

    14. Courtney Juneau

      I have loved the Thirst series from the very beginning, but I had my doubts when I found there would be a fifth. I felt Pike wouldn't be able to drag it out any longer, therefor making a novel that would be uninteresting. Nonetheless, I decided to buy it the day it came out. As I was reading it, I was also reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck, (no words could describe this book) so I read about half of the book one night, and then stopped for quite a while to read East of Eden. When I picked i [...]

      I feel like I’ve read this book before…d oh wait, I have! Pike has already done the whole alien/time traveling blah blah blah nonsense. Does he think his readers are retarded and can’t remember or something? Also, how many times is this freaking story going to end?! What, are we on the third ending or something? I liked that he brought it back and tried to make it available to a new generation of vampire fans, however, this latest attempt just makes me annoyed that I wasted my time and mon [...]

    16. hayden

      Wow. Whoever thought the vampire genre wasn't toast?The reason this vampire book succeeds is because Thirst, although it may appear otherwise based on the cover and blurb and such, isn't primarily a vampire novel. It's a thriller that happens to involve vampires. Too many books cashing in on the vampire craze feature vampires and no actual good qualities; they're written terribly, or aren't characterized, or have no plot. The Thirst series does not fall into this category; it's fast-paced, intri [...]

    17. Edwin Rodriguez

      This what I have been waiting for, the epic conclusion to Sita's story. I cannot wait for this book to hit the shelves. After I am done reading "The Hunger Games" series I'm going straight to this one

    18. Penny Landon

      As much as I wanted to hate this book because the series never seems to wrap up perfectly I loved this new Sita story. While a lot of the really great action in this book happens during the flashbacks of Sita's experience during WWII and the holocaust, I still found it gripping and entertaining. It made up for the almost complete lack of action in the present day plotline until the last twenty pages or so. Out of all the Pike books this series has to be one of his most complicated and dynamic, w [...]

      originally at: Dawn of the BooksI can't decide between a five stars or four stars, so I'll go with 4.5.Being the fifth book in a series I read a while ago, I was reluctant to pick It up. I couldn't remember much from the first four books, and when I saw this one, I looked over it. Then, just a few weeks ago, I decided to give this book a go because I had enjoyed the first four books, and I absolutely love Christopher Pike's style of writing. It is very professional. Let me begin by saying that I [...]

    20. Jessica

      This book just jumped all over the place. First, we have the plot line carried in from Thirst No.4, then we have Sita's past popping up: her time in Auschwitz, the tale of Veronica, and Krishna. The beginning plot involving what happened in No. 4 seems to get lost somewhere in the middle, or at the very least, distorted. I may be mistaken, but its like the book just jumps from plotline to plotline in a very confusing and fast-paced manner.While the multiple plotlines may have been hard to follow [...]

    21. Hurricanekerrie

      I don't suspect that many YA books will make people want to read up on WWII history and pickup the Mahabharata on the way AND read the New Testament just for good measure, but that's exactly what I plan to do next. Christopher Pike has a wonderful gift of fictionalizing history and infusing it with spirituality. If you're uninitiated to all things Pike, you will likely be pleasantly surprised or turned off. I happen to have an open mind and I truly enjoy these juxtapositions, even the liberty he [...]

    22. D.C.

      WTH! Ok first off this story has ended and restarted several times and its getting really annoying, but of course I feel obligated to continue to read the series. Finally we see Matt and Sita come together. Great! I've been waiting for that. But we get to the very end and yet again she tries to prevent herself from becoming a vampire only this time Matt is there. But he. Doesn't stop her and she doesn't do it and the book ends Seriously? God if this is the end of the series I'm going to be pisse [...]

    23. Amber

      Wow!! Pike has done it again. Not only leave us hanging at just the place she wants to be. I'm in awe of you Pike. You are so intelligent its scary. Sometimes I wonder are you from some of those worlds?? Haha. Really though I love Sita's story. I know you could go on with her till the end of time. And I would be right there reading every bit of the way. This book was amazing. I hope this isn't the end. But if it is, in my mind I know the choice she will make and I'm fine with that. Thank you Pik [...]

    24. Myndi

      Wow, just wow! My head is left spinning after the latest installment of Thirst. I started the book thinking perhaps this was the final book in the story. I can honestly say that I sincerely hope it isn't after finishing it. This book drew me in faster and keep me more interested than book 4. I was drawn to Sita's memories and cried over the heartbreak she was forced to witness. This series is truly an amazing part of the vampire genre.

    25. Sarah

      What was the point of the previous two books, if this series is simply going to end in a similar fashion that the series did the first time around, over a decade ago? Sorry, Pike, but I'm just going to pretend that this series ends at The Last Vampire #6, because this ruined it.

    26. Robyn

      I am extremely disappointed with this series. not only did he already do this final story line in the second book it's extremely long winded and boring.

    27. Andrea Osterlund

      woooow. pike is just amazing at bringing everything full circle!!! mind blown. the end though, you gotta leave me hanging like that bro? lol
