Thirst No. 1 by Christopher Pike

Description

As to blood -- ah, blood, the whole subject fascinates me. I do like that as well, warm and dripping, when I am thirsty. And I am often thirsty....
Alisa has been in control of her urges for the five thousand years she has been a vampire. She feeds but does not kill, and she lives her life on the fringe to maintain her secret. But when her creator returns to hunt her, she must break her own rules in order to survive.
Her quest leads her to Ray. He is the only person who can help her; he also has every reason to fear her. Alisa must get closer to him to ensure her immortality. But as she begins to fall in love with Ray, suddenly there is more at stake than her own life....

About the Author

Christopher Pike is a best-selling author of young adult novels.  The Thirst series, The Secret of Ka, and the Remember Me and Alosha trilogies are some of his favorite titles.  He is also the author of several adult novels, including Sati and The Season of Passage.  Thirst and Alosha are slated to be released as feature films.  Pike currently lives in Santa Barbara, where it is rumored he never leaves his house.  But he can be found online at Christopherpikebooks.com.
