    "AMAZING!!!"

    I have been reading Christopher Pike since high school, more than 10 years ago, and even though I know I have evolved and grown in taste, his books have a timeless quality. I think Sita the last vampire is the by far the best Vampire series ever written. Pike's books are super entertaining with exciting plots and characters that you fall in love, there are definite spiritual messages in them. Its hard for me to stay interested interested in books in a series, but I savored every word. The narrator did a good job but I didn't really think her voice fits with the voice that I had imagined for Sita, but the writing was so captivating that I didn't care. I LOVED every moment of it. Thank you Christopher Pike! I can't wait for Thirst No 4.

    "Really didn't shine a light to No.1 and No.2"

    This was a good book, and a good listen. A lot of suspense, which I have countered in a lot of Pike books. Sita is a really strong characters and I really like her. So, I would suggest listening to this book only if you loved no.1 and no.2 because you won't really follow along if you haven't. I gave this book three stars because I felt like it wasn't wrote up to par to no.1 and no.2.

    "Not horrible!"

    I read the Pike series many years ago. I have since re-read and re-listened to the books in this series. I feel this books did a good job of re-engaging you in Sita's life however, it left many unanswered questions from previous books. I am not sure if Thirst #3 and #4 are really necessary after all this time. It might be better to have left Sita die in Thirst #2.

    "why is this the only book in the series on audio?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    loved the book & the story but i really wish the rest of the series was available on audio! How can anybody possibly think that only putting the 3rd book in a series on audio is ok?


    Any additional comments?

    get the rest of the series on audio!

    Where does Thirst No. 3: The Eternal Dawn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Christopher Pikes writing and especially his Thirst series. He lends a greater depth to his heroes and heroines as more than mere vampires. He tugs at their beginnings and underpinnings in such a way that you meet characters you never expected. Thus far, Audible has only the third in the series of four volumes. Read them in order. Each volume is meaty and not a quick read. It's more of a seven course meal that leaves one satisfied and content but not tied up too neatly. She is, after all, the worlds oldest vampire who is also shackled by her spirituality, living and breathing her Karma.

    I love audible. I discovered it as a solution to my long drive (30mi each way) back and forth to work. This is my down time after work.

    "One of Christopher Pike's finest."
    If you could sum up Thirst No. 3: The Eternal Dawn in three words, what would they be?

    Its about time!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thirst No. 3: The Eternal Dawn?

    the fact that this book came out. I remember reading the original 6 volume "Last Vampire" series when I was much younger and re-read them many times. I always wondered what happened after that story ended. Now we know. Apparently there is a "Thirst 4", but it is not out on audiobook. Wish it was.


    What does Mandy Siegfried bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brought my old friends (characters that I read long ago) to life for the first time for me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Please get Thirst 4 in audio

    Where does Thirst No. 3: The Eternal Dawn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    was pleasantly surprise. Great story line. Had me caught up from the first chapter to the last page. I only wish the rest were available.


    What does Mandy Siegfried bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    great distinction between characters.

    "The Last Vampire"

    The Last Vampire series was my all-time favorite as a teenager. I read it so many times that I had much of it memorized.

    For me, it was hard to hear this audiobook. For one, every time Mandy spoke for a man, her voice sounded ridiculous to me. It bothered me so much that I would actually have to rewind the audio to hear what she was saying because I was paying attention to how annoying I thought it was.

    I love the book, but so many things about how it was narrated bothered me. I'd rather hear my kindle's fake voice read the book, honestly.

    "Solid...but not the best..."

    I was SO excited when I saw that this was a continuation of the Last Vampire series that I love. I didn't think, with the ending of the last book in that series, that it would ever continue but that was explained away in a way that worked well enough and did not distract from the current story. My only probelm with this book was that I wished it was longer. I'm also not a fan of the new title (Thirst) but as that does not affect the story itself it's only a minor annoyance. I look forward to listening to the next one.

    "Love it!"

    This is one of my favorite series!!! I was so glad when he started writing these books again!!! I wish the first two were available on here for listening. However, this book is done quite amazingly! Mandy does an amazing job at doing good voices for the different characters.
